J.Lo Wore the Controversial Denim Trend That's All Over Zara and H&M

Jennifer Lopez has seen it all, so when she endorses a controversial trend, people take notice. The superstar and mother of two was recently spotted walking to a casual lunch in Los Angeles. Lopez mixed luxury and affordable pieces, including an Hermés Birken bag and designer aviators with Nike Air Force 1s, a cropped sweater, and baggy low-rise jeans. And, while the sneakers are definitely cool, it was the Y2K-era low-rise jeans that piqued our interest. 

Although low-rise styles have crept back into fashion over the past few seasons, the unusual combination of rise and width pushes these jeans into controversial territory. If you're totally opposed to low-rise jeans, move along. This look isn't for you. But you're in luck if you're open to something a little out of the box. We found several pairs of baggy low-rise denim at places like Zara and H&M, along with a few pricier versions. 

This fit might not be for everyone. J.Lo can pull off outfits most women wouldn't even attempt. That said, we think this one's a winner. We especially love how the super slouchy fit works with casual and more elevated pieces. It's perfect for those with Birken bag dreams who live on a Birkenstock budget.

So, if you're down to give Lopez's latest look a go, keep scrolling to shop similar pieces, plus a plethora of sweet low-slung jeans to wear on your next lunch date. Enjoy!
