In the early 2000s, Jennifer Lopez was the first to embrace the fashion of the early years. She wore velvet jumpsuits, rhinestone-embellished tops, newsboy caps – name the trend and there’s a picture of her inside. Lopez isn’t shy about stepping out of her comfort zone when it comes to her style experimentation. However, just like anyone else, there are some wardrobe items he will continue to rely on again and again. She loves hats, for example, and another staple Lopez likes are flared jeans. She owns the denim look in a variety of washes and the ’70s pants are a standout piece in her street style ensembles.
For a lunch date with boyfriend Ben Affleck, Lopez wore a black and white fringed poncho knitted with navy flared jeans. She accessorized her look with a pair of black pumps and a matching Valentino Rockstud Alcove bag. In the usual Lopez fashion, he wore aviator sunglasses. The multi-shot joins a growing roster of Hollywood celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Garner and Katie Holmes, who have all said goodbye to skinny jeans in favor of flared trousers. Although in the past Lopez relied heavily on skinny for her off-duty suits, today her suits incorporate baggy pants. In December 2021, for example, she coordinated with Affleck in blue while sporting baggy jeans.
There is no question that flared jeans are significantly more comfortable and roomy than skinny jeans that tie at the ankles, which is why celebrities are currently gravitating towards them. Not many people want to be held back as the focus has shifted to wearing comfortable fashion in recent years. Plus, the retro-inspired denim adds a funky detail to your outfit with its flared hems. If you want to try the denim trend, you can pair it with Lopez’s Lopez dining look. Alternatively, if you want to make the pants work for the office, simply pair a smart blazer and a light sweater.
