Outfit Obsession: Jennifer Lopez's Breezy Backyard Slip Dress
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez spent Labor Day with their kids dressed to the nines. The family staged a backyard photo shoot, with the dress code centered around summer whites and denim. Naturally, J Lo herself took things to the next level in Tory Burch’s Handkerchief Embroidered Gown, which originally retailed for a whopping $2.5K at the beginning of the summer. The gorgeous ivory slip comes with a lacy neckline, lace inserts, and bursts of colorful bouquets that extend to the ruffles at the end of the asymmetrical skirt. Lopez went so far as to make this a transitional look too, by grounding it out with chunky burgundy Coach boots. While she tied back her hair to reveal a pair of her signature gold hoops for a few shots, J Lo also turned up the romance and let her waves loose later on. Of course, she didn’t forget to accessorize with her emerald-cut engagement ring from A-Rod.
Even though we’re pretty hung up on the gorgeous dress, which we’d continue to wear layered over a turtleneck far into the winter months if we were her, we also love what her boots add to the ensemble. Not only do they bring Jennifer’s current story with Coach full circle, as she recently modeled with her kids and mom for the brand’s new Family campaign, but they also prove that a powerful accessory like a dark, chunky, knee-high boot can help bring your slip into fall — and that’s certainly something we’re interested in doing right now.
