Jennifer Lopez’s Green Suit Is Proof That Matching Sets Can Read Casual
Although J. Lo is known for her super-glam red carpet looks, she prefers to keep it decidedly more low-key in her day-to-day. That's why it should come as no surprise that the queen of off-duty casual managed to find a more laid-back take on a trend that can quickly read stuffy and stiff if styled incorrectly. Enter, Jennifer Lopez's green suit: the ideal pick for anyone who's written off the two-piece set because of its formal-leaning nature.
Lopez has had a whirlwind of a week. After attending the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sun., she set off on a marathon of talk-show visits on Feb. 13. As one would expect, the style inspiration between the two appearances was plenty, and while the black, cut-out Zimmerman dress she wore on The Ellen Show was certainly jaw-dropping, the linen set she was snapped wearing en route to Jimmy Kimmel Live! was the definite outfit win of the day.
Prior to putting on a slime green, chiffon halter dress for the actual filming, Lopez was photographed arriving on set in a Brunello Cucinelli suit — one that consisted of forest-green cropped trousers and a matching, double-breasted blazer with gold buttons. Both pieces already felt inherently relaxed and easygoing — they are rendered in lightweight linen, after all — but Lopez's decision to wear the jacket unbuttoned further infused the overall getup with a casual, nonchalant air.
The singer slipped into a pair of sky-high, Christian Louboutin lace-up booties that coordinated with the suit's green hue, keeping it simple with her accessories. She forwent a handbag, opting only for a dainty, gold necklace, Le Vian stud earrings, and mirrored sunglasses. Lopez slicked her hair back into a half ponytail, rounding out her beauty look with a swipe of nude gloss on her pout.
It's no secret that suits can be tricky (and oftentimes intimidating). What's more, they can quickly feel too business-y, especially for a day of running errands or grabbing a quick bite to eat with friends. The trick, then? Make like J. Lo and find a matching set that's rendered in a casual fabric (linen or corduroy are always great options) and has a slightly more relaxed silhouette. Ahead, shop Lopez's exact suit, as well as The Zoe Report's favorites to wear all season long.
