With more frigid days out on the horizon, the style forecast calls for knitwear with a chance of sweatshirts for the foreseeable future. Staying warm for the remainder of winter is at the top of the priority list, but that clearly doesn't have to mean sacrificing style, as proven by Jennifer Lopez's gray sweatshirt and skirt combo. The entertainment mogul posted the casual look to her Instagram Story on Sun., demonstrating how to put a feminine spin on your favorite sportswear staples.

It's not the first time J. Lo has been spotted wearing affordable sportswear brand Champion — she rocked a baby pink iteration when getting a workout in just last fall. This time, though, the singer opted for the perfect gray hue with a cropped length.

Athleisure generally comes off more masculine, but you can easily soften the trend with a little unexpected styling. Since hoodies, sweatsuits, and sneakers have become style mainstays for trendsetters in and outside of the gym, there has been a flood of creative ways to adjust your activewear for a number of occasions. Clearly, the mother of two was down for a gray moment in Los Angeles, and she looked cheerful in the relaxed outfit, rounding it out with a slicked bun and her signature hoop earrings.

Lopez isn't the only one keeping things cozy this winter. Everyone from Gigi Hadid to Olivia Palermo is keeping comfort-first items on rotation while combatting winter winds in style. With a little imagination, a snug hoodie can be elevated in a flash. From slip dresses to midi skirts, there are plenty of pairing options to consider. To take the styling technique for a spin, start by checking out the examples below, and maybe even adding a few to your cart.
