Winning Formula: The Outfit Jennifer Lopez Swears By

From her legendary Versace gown at the 2000 Grammys to all those beaded and cutout ensembles, it’s clear Jennifer Lopez is in a style class all her own. Evolving from music-video vixen to true red-carpet royalty, the singer-actress-dancer-goddess has refined her signature glam over time, and we’re fixated at every turn.

With an über-toned physique, Lopez has the ability (and confidence!) to pull off literally anything—two things we greatly admire. She always embraces her signature curves, which means she has a roster of items in her closet that complement the dynamite figure she clearly works hard for.

One of Lopez’s go-to outfit formulas revolves around a wardrobe staple that works on just about every body type and just so happens to be a leading silhouette in the pants department for fall: The wide-leg trouser. It appeared across the New York, London, Milan and Paris runways in a range of textures and colors, from a leather cognac pair at Jacquemus to azure blue at Joseph to slouchy topstitched styles held together with drawstrings at Rejina Pyo.

At once classic and on-trend, Lopez proves time and again the versatility of a wide-leg silhouette, regularly demonstrating how it can be worn for myriad occasions, whether you choose to dress it up or down.

Just recently, Lopez took a pristine white wide-leg pant for a spin by pairing it with a punchy floral blouse and polished accessories. The feminine formula is perfect for when you’re in need of a work-appropriate outfit that can easily take you to evening cocktails. What’s more, Lopez punctuated the look with a croc-effect bag which is not only a favorite of hers but another leading handbag trend for fall. This is a must-try look for the new season.

If you’re in the mood to don white roomy trousers now, take yet another tip from Lopez, who donned the ultimate warm-weather dinner ensemble with a slinky camisole in an all-white palette. A sleek bag and gold jewelry serve as effortless accents—if you layer a couple of delicate necklaces like J.Lo. (We’re all about linked styles at the moment.)

We can always rely on the songstress for a sophisticated show of skin and, as luck would have it, Lopez has also worn a wide-leg pant and coordinating crop top for an effortless date night look. To keep things smart, she went with a pinstripe pattern and finished with a summery bag and her signature hoops earrings. Genius.

Feeling inspired now to throw on a wide-leg pant like Jenny from the block? Well, we’re spotlighting three of her best takes on the hero piece ahead with similar items to shop for a variety of occasions. Each formula is a total winner that you can and should keep in rotation come fall. Get a running start.
