Jessica Alba: Don’t follow trends

Jessica Alba advises against buying fad fashions in her new lifestyle tome.

The stunning star successfully launched eco-friendly baby-care project The Honest Company last year, and has since gone on to pen a lifestyle booked called The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You.

In the tome, Jessica guides readers on how to live a healthier, cleaner lifestyle and claims fashion doesn't have to be expensive and flashy.

"To me, sustainable fashion is stuff that you're not going to throw out; it's stuff that you're going to love and wear," she told

Jessica dedicates a chapter to style in the new book, detailing everything from wardrobe essentials to how to develop your personal look.

In a separate interview, the brunette beauty revealed how women can look fashion-forward on a budget.

“There are so many awesome beauty DIY things you can do literally from your pantry,” she told

“Buy vintage or invest in some key pieces in your wardrobe that you’re going to want to wear for a long time, and that you could even pass down to a friend or your kids. And every stylish woman should own a great blazer and a pair of ballet flats.”

The actress previously explained the inspiration behind her eco-friendly projects.

"When I gave birth to my first daughter, I realised that most of the baby products are full of toxic substances. But to buy organic, you need not only to run in different shops for the nappies, care products etc, but everything is packaged in an austere way. I wanted to create a place where we offer healthy products, but pretty and imaginative as well," she said.
