Although she’s frequently photographed wearing leggings en route to the gym, it’s safe to say that Jennifer Lopez doesn’t make a habit of dressing down. Take for instance the over-the-knee boots she’s worn on repeat for the past 18 years (!) or the sky-high heels she donned for a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Given Lopez’s penchant for shirking casual wear, naturally, we turned to the stylish celeb in search of inspiration for what to wear aside from jeans.
Now, don’t get us wrong, we will never give up our jeans—however, we will admit that we feel the urge to ditch our denim and mix it up from time to time. So, for the sake of diversity, we culled through JLo’s latest looks in order to identify the notable non-denim pant styles the celeb can’t stop wearing. From wide-leg trousers to “ugly” utility pants, these are the three items Jennifer Lopez wears instead of jeans. Keep scrolling to see all the JLo-inspired pant ensembles we’re copying stat.
A classic style, wide-leg trousers have been rising in popularity this year, thanks in part to endorsements from the likes of Kate Middleton, Margot Robbie, and, of course, Jennifer Lopez. Lopez routinely demonstrates the versatility of the wardrobe staple, proving that it can be dressed up or down for nearly any occasion.
Utility pants are the “ugly” trend that seemingly every celeb, from Hailey Beiber to Yara Shahidi, is wearing in 2019. Not one to shy away from a controversial trend, Jennifer Lopez has, of course, been spotted wearing the pant style on several occasions as of late. Follow Lopez’s lead and pair them with lace-up heels or boots to amp up the street appeal.
Leave it to Jennifer Lopez to make a case for adding a pair of classic cropped trousers to our workwear rotation. Though high-waisted wide-leg pants are on the rise, there’s an argument to be made for keeping this office-friendly staple around—and we’re being persuaded by Lopez’s latest looks.
