Jessica Alba Does Underwear As Outerwear Two Ways

Flashing flesh and rocking a bit of underwear as outerwear is nothing new for celebs. But rarely is it done as chicly as Jessica Alba has, twice, while out and about in New York City this week.

The Hollywood star has been on a bit of a sartorial roll recently, giving us major wardrobe inspo as she goes. She’s clearly got a thing for strapless tops, too, as she rocked two bustiers in as many days, once when she opted for one in black with a gorgeous maroon skirt and the other occasion when she wore one in jade green, which she paired with on-trend, super-wide palazzo trousers (that’s next season’s ’70s trend nailed).

So what do you make of wearing underwear as outerwear? Would you? Could you? If you want our advice, do as Jessica Alba does.
