Find the right layers for Fall with Jessica's cropped khaki jacket

This time of year is notoriously tricky territory when it comes to outerwear. Some days can feel quite hot while others are rather chilly.

A coat is too heavy but a light cardigan isn't substantial enough. But there is a very simple solution. Allow us to introduce the shirt/jacket hybrid we're calling the shacket. From festivals to everyday layering, this military-inspired crop is the most versatile trend ever so it's time to get involved.

And if you need convincing look no further than Jessica Alba, who was spotted rocking khaki utilitarian piece from This Is The Great, layered over a floaty/ flirty floral print dress.

Earlier this year, Jessica spoke to People about her parenting skills. 

The entrepreneur revealed that she is strict when it comes to her parenting. 

'I'm probably on the stricter side of lenient,; she began.

'But I think boundaries are good for kids.  And structure. I find that my kids thrive when they know where the boundaries are and the comfort zone and where they can be creative and play.'

She recalled a time that eldest daughter Honor was stubborn, something that she was as a child. 

'I was a pretty stubborn and tough kid, and when I didn't get my way, I would cross my arms and stomp my feet. '=And the first time Honor did that, I was like, 'Oh my gosh.' It was like I got thrown back into being 7 again.'' 

'But the thing is, my mom wasn't trying to talk to me about it. She was like, 'You're in trouble, you're grounded, you're going to your room.' 

And appears Jessica's tougher parenting is something valuable she learned from her mother.
