Star style: Jennifer Lopez

Star style: Jennifer Lopez | get the look on


Layering is a great way to start wearing your Fall clothing but still allow yourself to peel away the heavier items during the warmer temperatures of the day. Jennifer Lopez’s outfit is a perfect mixture of the transitional state. Her faux-layered sweater dress with a peek of a button-down is perfectly paired with these black lace-up heels. Adding a statement Hermès cuff bracelet gives the perfect amount of arm candy and a (not pictured) Valentino purse completes the classic black, white, and grey color palette.

Inspired by J.Lo? Pair this shirt dress with this elongated sweater. Give your waist some definition with this beauty of a belt. Adore your feet with these cutout heels and give your wrist a little action with this black and gold cuff. Throw on this crossbody and you’re all set for #normcore!

Have you entered the giveaway yet? You could be one of the lucky 2 winners!

It’s no secret that I love the silhouette of fit-and-flare dresses, and this mint color find from Kate Spade is no exception. I love nothing more than finding a dress that fits like a glove. I’ve had my fair share of items that have either a weird fitting bodice or too large armholes or all around ill-shaped that it would require too many alterations to make it worth the purchase. This dress, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. I love the simple structure, the slight flare to the skirt, and most importantly, the pockets! I kept things simple by pairing it with a pavé necklace and leopard print heels. What’s your go-to style of dresses?
