Jennifer Lopez's Sunglasses Made A Convincing Case For Granny-Inspired Glam This Summer
On the heels of her 50th birthday, Jennifer Lopez is maintaining her vampiric reputation with that ageless complexion and her signature sultry style, but the entertainment mogul shook things up with one offbeat accessory. Ahead of the European leg of the It's My Party Tour, the Bronx-born beauty dropped a seriously fire look on Instagram that screamed Leo Season. Offsetting a silky jungle-print set by Gucci, Jennifer Lopez's wire frame sunglasses from the Italian fashion house served a granny-chic aesthetic that was an unexpected look for the mother-of-two.
The transparent eyewear offered a clear view of Lopez's amber smokey eye, coordinating with a pair of oversized gold hoops. With her bronze locks pulled back into a sleek ponytail, Lopez opted for a glossy nude lip, allowing the silk top's plunging neckline to steal the show. The "Waiting For Tonight" singer generally reaches for shades of the aviator variation, so this angular pick was a noteworthy switch-up for the New York native.
Putting a quirky, somewhat ironic spin on the luxurious pantsuit, the pronounced specs cemented the whimsical spirit of Gucci within the look, if there was any question prior. Jennifer Lopez's street style usually sways more classic, so the kitschy accessory was a welcomed wildcard from the longtime entertainer.
Trendy shades have shrunk considerably over the past few years, with tiny, '90s-inspired sunglasses reminiscent of The Matrix becoming all but standard for celebrity tastemakers and the fashion set. But it's clear that the '70s are beckoning, because retro frame shapes like Jenny's are on the rise. Elle Fanning donned gradient, boxy sunglasses at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, while Gigi Hadid went full-on granny-glam with a pearl sunglasses chain this summer.
Even if you're not looking to ditch your cat-eyes for good, adopting a bit of J.Lo-inspired drama is never a bad idea, and a daring pair of shades is a low-commitment way to switch things up. Try out the boxy trend and serve retro flair with a few statement sunglasses sourced by The Zoe Report, ahead.
