J.Lo Wore the Jeans-and-Tee Combo Perfected by French Women

Although it's completely true that there's nothing we love more than a full-blown Jennifer Lopez look (we're talking about her iconic Versace jungle dress and, more recently, her bridal minidress by Giambattista Valli), it would be wrong for us to discount the Hustlers star's more laid-back outfits. After all, whether it be a sundress or joggers, J.Lo really can make anything look good. Her latest one is no exception. 

While out and about in L.A., Lopez was spotted wearing the easygoing denim look that French girls have been donning for decades. Specifically, she combined a basic white T-shirt with high-rise, wide-leg jeans à la Jane Birkin back in the 1970s. Keeping with the theme, she added a pair of sky-high platform heels, oversized sunglasses and large gold hoops. Apart from the absence of a woven basket bag (Lopez chose to instead accessorise with Coach's logo-covered Beat shoulder bag), she looked the epitome of a French movie star—a look we are constantly trying to replicate.

Below, see how J.Lo put her own spin on the iconic French uniform.

This price-to-quality ratio is going to be very difficult to beat.

These are about as close to perfect as it gets.

Tu Es Mon Tresor is *the* denim brand to watch in 2022.

The front pockets are a total ode to '70s French-girl style.

I love the colour of this COS pair. 

For something a tad subtler and more walkable.
