Jessica Alba has a fun attitude about fashion. “Never say never,” she shares in the February issue of InStyle. However, she does have a few conditions.

“I probably won’t ever wear booty shorts. I feel pretty confident about that,” she continues. “And I don’t like oversize shoulder pads, but I do appreciate a strong shoulder profile, like the ones Isabel Marant is doing.”

Listing off her favorite labels — Narciso Rodriguez, Oak and Cheap Monday among them — the actress and Honest Company founder also shares her most important piece of fashion advice: Get a tailor.

“Whether you shop at H&M, Topshop, Target, Forever 21, or buy high-end, if the piece doesn’t fit, it will be halfway there,” she shares. “So get your jackets nipped in at the waist and your pants hemmed at the perfect place. If you get your clothing tailored, you can look like a million bucks.”

Alba, who almost always looks like a million bucks, believes her style has changed a lot since she became a mother four years ago. It’s “more adventurous,” she says. “In the past, I was into my uniform of leggings and a sweater. Now I’m willing to try bold prints, bright colors and different cuts.”

But she does still follow a few fashion rules. In addition to sticking to high-waisted skirts and stretchy denim (“My jeans need to have Lycra,” she shares), the star is all about a strappy sandal.

“I feel confident about my ankles and feet — I’m not afraid to show them off with open-toe sandals,” she says. “But there has to be a strap across the toes to look good.” Tell us: Is there one crazy item of clothing you’ll never wear?
