Jennifer Lopez’s Black Paper-Bag Pants Are The Perfect Alternative To Jeans
Spring days are flying by, but that doesn't mean it's rainbows and sundresses from here on out. New Yorkers especially know that April plays a ton of games in terms of getting hopes up for warm weather before doing an unexpected switch up, so hold on to your layers a little while longer. If you simply can't bear the thought of throwing on your go-to jeans one more time, take Jennifer Lopez's black paper-bag pants as a sound alternative.
The newly engaged entertainment mogul is training for her upcoming film, Hustlers, so she's been spotted in a lot of athleisure lately, but Lopez still cleans up with iconic red carpet looks and street-style moments. When she's not turning heads in a voluminous hot-pink gown, she's trotting around New York City in simple but sophisticated staples, and Lopez has always been big on wide-leg trousers.
On Tues., the Monster in Law star left an interview with Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show looking smart in paper-bag pants and sky-high platform heels. Keeping it chill in classic aviators and gold hoop earrings, the Bronx native proved the staying power of a good pair of high-waisted pants.
Even though a great-fitting pair of jeans will forever hold a place in stylish closets near and far, the American staple deserves a little break this spring. Power suits and menswear-inspired trends are at an all time high, with women rocking oversized, business-inspired sets with sneakers and stilettos alike.
A great pair of slacks is a fashion-forward way to elevate so many looks, and there are plenty of fresh picks on the market. Whether you're looking to make a splash or keep it classic, there's something for every aesthetic, so shop The Zoe Report's selection of high-waisted trousers that will give your go-to denim a much-needed vacay, ahead.
