J Lo Masters Spring's Biggest Denim Trend in Split-Hem Jeans
Jennifer Lopez has been rolling out the spring 2022 trends lately, and her recent Santa Monica outing is no exception. Shortly after making elastic-waist pants look cool and rocking a Y2K-style cropped yellow sweatshirt with Nike Air Jordans, the American star is now putting split-hem jeans on our radar. While out with boyfriend Ben Affleck, she embraced a laidback yet polished silhouette in a billowing floral blouse and casual blue denim jeans.
Lopez’s balloon-sleeve shirt makes the perfect spring transitional outfit, while the split hems in her jeans nod playfully to the warm weather ahead. Her outfit heralds the comeback of reworked denim – designers like Diesel’s Glenn Martens and Loewe’s Jonathan Anderson also explored a range of denim treatments for their fall 2022 collections, a testament to the timelessness and universal appeal of the textile.
Lopez’s medium-wash jeans revealed a pair of white heeled sandals, another spring mainstay which nicely complemented the soft pastel shade of her top. Completing her look with green-tinted aviator sunglasses and gold jewellery, she secured her hair in a high ponytail, putting her Ray-Ban eyewear on full display.
Complementing his girlfriend’s look, Affleck opted for black jeans, a grey shirt-jacket, or “shacket,” worn over a dark navy shirt, and black-and-grey sneakers. The couple showed off their styling prowess, presenting effortlessly cool, layered looks for the in-between weather. Ahead, see the lovebirds picking up Affleck’s son, Samuel, from school, and get inspired to create your own transitional spring outfits.
