Throwing in some contrast to the outfit, the longtime leading lady wore black pump and a black belt.
Rounding out her overall look, the Golden Globe winner wore her dark brown locks long, straight and flowing just past her shoulders in a blunt cut and a center part.
While Garner is known to many fans for big screen film roles like Catch Me If You Can (2002), Daredevil (2003), Juno (2007), Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Peppermint (2018), she also has has had a string of roles in television, some of which were big hits.
Her small screen resume includes screen Time Of Your Life (1999-2000), Alias (2001-2006), Camping (2018), and now Party Down.
The sitcom, which follows a group of caterers in Los Angeles as they strive to make it in Hollywood, originally premiered on Starz in the U.S. on March 20, 2009.
While the show got good reviews from critics, it didn’t translate to high ratings, and thus the show got canceled after the second season, which last aired in June 2010.
It’s believed the departure of stars Adam Scott, to Parks and Recreation, and Jane Lynch, to Glee, played a role in the decision to end the series.
