J.Lo Wore the Chic Outerwear Trend I'm Seconds From Buying for $120 on Amazon
There are certain wardrobe items that simply pull more weight than others. A great handbag, standout boots, or an eye-catching piece of outerwear has the power to transform even the most boring outfit into something truly special. And no one knows that more than Jennifer Lopez, who spent a day over the weekend with her husband, Ben Affleck, and their kids wearing a simple jeans and T-shirt combination that was made noteworthy thanks to an extraordinary faux-fur jacket.
Specifically, Lopez's top layer was a mohair-blend cardigan-coat from the luxury Italian fashion house Brunello Cucinelli. But since her exact pick is neither available nor affordable for many, I went on a hunt to find an alternative that is. That's when I stumbled upon an equally boho-chic jacket from the NYC-based denim brand BlankNYC on Amazon that just so happens to be marked down from $148 to $120.
Both Lopez's jacket and my Amazon alt fall under a '70s-era outerwear trend that's making a major comeback right now: shaggy faux-fur coats. From styles made entirely of the fuzzy fabric to pared-down versions that are only lined with it (think Penny Lane's in Almost Famous), shop the J.Lo-approved style below.
On Jennifer Lopez: Brunello Cucinelli cardigan; Valentino VSLING Tote Bag ($3250); Giuseppe Zanotti boots

As you can see, this jacket turned a basic T-shirt and miniskirt into an outfit worthy of compliments.
I live in SoHo, and I swear I see a jacket like this one on every block.
Excuse my drooling, but really, can you blame me?
Prepare for a million "where'd you get that?" questions.
A black, faux-fur jacket will always be a wardrobe must in my book.
Don't bother asking me—you know I'm going to say buy it.
Trust me, you'll wear this jacket again and again.
"I always tell the girls, never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously, you never get hurt. You never get hurt, you always have fun. And if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends." — Penny Lane in Almost Famous
