Celebrities must have a pocket book full of simple styling tricks that instantly make any look cool. We like to imagine that they pass it back and forth, because somehow they are all aware of the same trends. Case in point: Jessica Alba’s latest coffee-eating series that featured the shoes nearly everyone in Hollywood owns.
When she stepped out in Los Angeles, she wore a sparkly burgundy knit sweater (how festive!) tucked into flared jeans with a knotted plaid headband and a pair of combat boots. Our eyes were instantly drawn to her shoes because the reddish brown color matched perfectly with her jacket – that’s expert style!
Combat boots are one style of footwear that will stand the test of time. And the best part is that it is stylish and practical. Featuring a classic lace-up design with a chunky sole, this classic loafer is the perfect comfy shoe for a cool girl. Plus, most styles are weather-resistant, so it’s no wonder why so many celebrities own a pair.
Even though you might reserve your shoes for the cooler months, the stars have proven that this utilitarian style can be worn pretty much all year round. Hailey Bieber, Joan Smalls, and Shay Mitchell wore a pair at Coachella a few summers ago, and Kaia Gerber wore a mini dress and leather jacket. Kate Middleton and Hilary Duff are other famous fans who have been spotted in a pair over the past year. Alba wore the same shoes earlier this week at the Baby2Baby event, proving we need a pair in our rotation ASAP.
