Jennifer Lopez Found the 2022 Way to Wear a Maxi Skirt

Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to the maxi-skirt trend. In fact, just a couple of weeks ago, we pointed out that she swapped the more common midi skirt out for a long one while out shopping with her daughter. And this week, for a night out with Ben Affleck, she did it again. But this time, her maxi-skirt outfit was a little—shall we say—sultrier?

Lopez went with a long tartan plaid skirt, and to make it date night–appropriate, she wore it with a bra top (which appears to be a sheer bodysuit), an oversize black blazer, and high-heel ankle boots. Since the skirt is quite covered up, it makes sense that she would want to expose a little skin (in true J.Lo fashion) with the glimpse of the bra top beneath her blazer.

All in all, this seems like a fresh way to wear a maxi skirt for the new era of the trend. Scroll to shop the look for yourself along with some of our favorite maxi skirts.
