Jessica Alba updates the pantsuit for 2017 with some fabulously chic cutouts

One of the fashion high points of 2016 was the rise of the pantsuit. The movement was both politically motivated and fashionable, and frankly, we couldn’t get enough. We’re glad to see celebs will continue to rock the sophisticated look. Like the one we saw on Jessica Alba at the Marie Claire Image Makers Awards last night. The Sin City star and Honest Company Co-Founder chose a fashion-forward and sophisticated look, which was perfect for an event that honors makeup artists, hair stylists, and fashion stylists. But Jessica surprised us by updating the classic look with a very unique detail.

Jessica Alba brought the pantsuit into 2017 with stylish chic cutouts, and we can’t get enough.


Wow, now that’s a look that screams 2017. We love the waist-hugging fit that shows off Jessica’s killer curves. And the sleek fabric of the pants contrasts fabulously with the suede jacket. But the geometric cutouts on the shoulders and arms truly make this outfit sing.

The cutouts reveal only the slightest amount of skin, but they add a perfect amount of sexy.


We love seeing just those subtle pops of skin. And Jessica clearly knows how powerful that little peek of shoulder can be. We also love the strappy wrap detail around the waist, which adds extra texture and interest. Jessica’s look proves that business casual can still be badass and fashionable. We will definitely be taking notes for our 2017 wardrobes.

Jessica kept her makeup warm and her hair simple, which balanced the toughness of the jacket.


Jessica’s pantsuit would make a perfect candidate for a day-to-night look as well. Hair pulled back at the office, then let it flow for when you meet the girls for drinks. With this kind of fabulous fashion to get us started, we look forward to what 2017 has to bring.

And with style icons like Jessica, we know our pantsuit game will be on point.
