As summer comes to an end, the art of transitional dressing starts up in full force. And if you're J. Lo, colder temps means its officially time to break out bulkier, cozier pieces of workout gear. The music icon has spent the last week walking around Los Angeles in a handful of chic sweatshirts — but lucky for you (and your wallet) she's been playing favorites with a throwback brand that's shockingly affordable. Jennifer Lopez's wears Champion sweatshirts, and she's about to convince you that they deserve a spot in your summer-to-fall lineup.
There's a good chance you owned a Champion sweatshirt back in the day — the brand defined sportswear in the '90s and it's been hit with a resurgence of popularity amongst the celebrity set. Case in point: Lopez opted for a Champion, bubble-gum pink sweatshirt for a coffee run in West Hollywood, which she coordinated with a pair of pastel leggings from her collaboration with Niyama Sol. The best part?
The sweatshirt is only $59, but when it's paired with sleek, white sneakers and a slicked-back ponytail à la J. Lo, it looks like it costs a pretty penny.
Last weekend in Beverly Hills, Lopez wore a similar look while she was out shopping with her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez. This time she settled on a heather-grey sweatshirt ($69), complete with a traditional silhouette and modern accents like a cropped length and a raw hemline.
