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.
