Jennifer Lopez has been on—and around—the block more than a few times, so we always love to see when she brings back a trend. Recently, the singer was spotted wearing a cropped puffy vest with cargo pants and her beloved Timberland boots. Obviously, we love this tonal look, but we wouldn’t expect anything less from J.Lo in January. As a native New Yorker, she knows how to dress for cold weather, even if that means temperatures are still above freezing in Southern California.
Cargo pants continue to gain prominence, replacing the usual casual lineup of jeans, sweatpants, and leggings. Choosing a neutral color palette and playing with proportions can make it easier to style the often baggy style. For instance, J.Lo’s Frankie Shop cargo pants have a high waist that hits just below her cropped jacket, making the outfit feel cleverly coordinated. Surprisingly, they’re also made of wool, making them extra warm.
