Jennifer Lopez Just Wore Her Anti-Skinny Jeans With an Unexpected Spring Shoe Trend

With a healthy rotation of fitted turtlenecks, faux fur coats and top-handle bags filling her wardrobe, Jennifer Lopez still leaves room for the occasional surprise outfit choice. Stepping out in New York, the singer styled up some of her favourite day-to-day times whilst working in a retro twist in a comfortable and wearable way.

As a ‘90s icon herself, it’s no surprise that Lopez gravitates towards silhouettes that dominated during the decade. Reaching for a pair of ultra-baggy puddle jeans with a distressed hem finish, the singer created a casual silhouette that looks like it could have been plucked from her wardrobe 30 years ago. Wearing her jeans with tall platform heels, Lopez added inches to her height whilst stopping her jeans from grazing the city streets.

Steering away from the casual nature of the wide-leg jeans, Lopez’s tall beige heels added drama to her weekend look. With her hair in a slicked back bun and opting for a black Hermes Birkin bag, her thoughtful styling additions elevated her feel of her casual denim base.

Whilst's J.Lo's denim choice enjoyed its heyday across the 90s, Gen Z's most stylish are reaching for these trending jeans on the daily in 2024. Wearing theirs with everything from '90s-inspired baby tees to cardigans, the floor-grazing trousers are back on our radars this season. As for her shoes, towering platforms were seen on the runways of Gucci and Chloé this season, too, cementing them as a need-to-know silhouette; one that taps into the overarching '70s trend we're also seeing pick up steam this spring.
