Jennifer Lopez Just Wore the Ultimate Quiet-Luxury Dress Trend Whilst Shopping in Paris

I often find myself drawn to Jennifer Lopez's style. Whether dressing down in ultra-baggy jeans or going all-out in an elegant dress and tall heels, the singer and actor's outfits always retain a polished edge that keeps her looking classy no matter the occasion.

Whilst out shopping in Paris this week, Lopez's look struck the perfect balance between her ultra-relaxed and hyper-glamorous style personalities. For her time in what many would call the most stylish city in the world, Lopez selected a shirt dress in a light ivory shade that featured mid-length sleeves, a jaunty collar and a nipped-in waist from which a voluminous skirt flared out. Wearing the dress partially unbuttoned and styled with subtle jewels, a skinny belt and black, cat-eye sunglasses, Lopez looked the picture of a classic film star.

Genuinely easy to wear, a shirt dress doesn't require layers of accessories to achieve a high-end finish. In fact, I'd argue less is more in this situation. Lopez has become a firm fan of the silhouette in recent weeks, having already worn a chic grey iteration a couple of weeks ago. Inspired by her recent looks, I think it's high time I added a fit-and-flare shirt dress to my own wardrobe, and handily, I've already spotted plenty of chic contenders.

From H&M to Me+Em, read on to discover our edit of elegant shirt dresses below.
