Shortly after bringing back ’90s-style wide-leg jeans, Jennifer Lopez championed the return of another silhouette from the decade: overalls. Designed in a lightweight black fabric, hers featured a square-neck top affixed to bell bottoms. The 52-year-old star wore the nostalgic style to pick up her daughters from school with her fiancé, Ben Affleck, who recently proposed to her for the second time.
The mom of two layered the overalls over a loose white short-sleeved T-shirt and added a touch of glam with tall black heeled shoes, a Coach Tabby top-handle bag, and tinted aviators. Her wavy hair was parted in the middle, leaving the eyewear in full view. The shoes allowed Lopez to bring her signature bohemian touch to an otherwise casual outfit, elevating it with a staple in her arsenal: platform heels. Recently, she also wore tall Gucci T-strap pumps for a Sephora visit, then paired nude open-toed heels with a maxi skirt to go furniture shopping.
Meanwhile, Affleck matched her laidback-yet-elevated vibe in a flannel shirt thrown over a graphic tee, complete with dark jeans and white sneakers. This isn’t the first time the lovebirds subtly coordinated their looks. Earlier this month, they both showcased their knack for styling transitional outfits while picking up Affleck’s child from school.
The sleeveless overalls join a lineup of ’90s– and 2000s-inspired fashion trends Lopez is helping bring mainstream, including elastic-waist pants, cropped sweatshirts, and split-hem jeans. Fashion designers have looked to the past to reinvent these popular silhouettes, resulting in halters, daringly low-back dresses, and shrunken sweaters feeling brand new again. Lopez is certainly one to make all the aforementioned pieces look modern and cool.
Ahead, see the newly engaged couple on the go.
