From sweats to gowns, Jennifer Lopez can make anything look chic. Fashion and beauty blogger Mercedes Sanchez shares how JLo inspires her personal life and style.
Many love her for her music, dancing, and romantic comedies, but I admire Jennifer Lopez for her sense of style— and because she’s a native New Yorker and Latina like myself. To me, she represents what following your dreams looks like because that’s literally what she did.
On Katie, Jennifer shared a personal story about a dream she had that inspired her to leave college in pursuit of a career in entertainment. She did what was right for her. I found this to be extremely encouraging.
Now to her fashion! I love how she can make anything look sexy. From sweat pants during rehearsal to a gorgeous gown on the red carpet, she always looks put-together. The outfit she wore on Katie this week is one of my favorites. A black pencil skirt which hugged her body, a sleek long sleeve ivory blouse and a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps. It’s a classic, clean look and perfect for the occasion.
It’s not what you wear; it’s how you wear it.
Jennifer Lopez influences my style because it appears to me that she dresses according to her mood-I do the same. There isn’t one word to define her style. One day she’s wearing jeans and the next she looks super professional. JLo lets me know that I can still be chic no matter what I put on! It’s not what you wear; it’s how you wear it.
And what about her looks? People Magazine named her the “Most Beautiful Woman.” Of course she has an amazing body, but I think it’s more than that. JLo exudes confidence and beauty by wearing a natural, no-make up look. As a fashion and beauty blogger, I appreciate that she celebrates real beauty instead of the “over-the-top” look. For the most part, JLo wears her signature nude lips and neutral tones with a dash of bronzer—a look all women can try.
Overall, Jennifer Lopez is a great example of how persistence, hard work, and smart decisions can help you to achieve your goals. I just wish her the same success in her personal life.
Still, no matter what she does, she does it with style.
After all, she is JLo.
