Jessica Alba’s Just-Add-DMs Maxi Dress Trick

Jessica Alba is a longtime maxi dress-devotee, and is usually seen working hers with sky-high wedges or strappy gladiator sandals.

But when she stepped out in her monochrome maxi in LA yesterday, gone were her signature summery strappies and in their place, a pair of stompy black Dr. Martens.

The mannish worker boot shape of Jess’ classic 1460s lends a cool grunge edge to her otherwise girly ensemble, and there’s something about the contrast of tough leather poking out from underneath a floaty sheer frock that has us in a dreamy sartorial spin.

Make like Jess and give your winter boots a dusting off before making them BFFs with your new season maxi for a glam grunge nod to the ’90s.

Mango’s Monochrome Maxi Dress (£69.99) is a dead ringer for Alba’s aztec print beauty, and its sexy lookalike side split will give your DMs the airing they deserve.
