Oh how we just love everything about J Lo and Ben Affleck right now. Just when you felt a little old and grey and tired, just when you thought Ben would never quite get over the post-divorce Jen Garner days when he was a little all over the place, just when autumn was creeping in. Might we say it’s just what we needed? In this pandemic laden gloom? I mean she’s 52! Longevity, done the right way, there it is - and she shamelessly loves fashion, she shamelessly loves high heels, and glow-all-over highlighter. She’s just shamelessly living her best life which is just what you need to see someone doing sometimes, albeit not in that gratuitous way some celebrities have a habit of doing.
She’s had her rough times, she’s been divorced and spent a few years with A Rod, but it never felt quite right did it? It never felt like coming home, which it just does when she set foot on that ridiculous Gin palace in the South of France with Ben, it just felt right.
Anyway, in celebration of J.Lo and Ben being back together we’ve imagined her favourite preowned pieces from our collection — we just know she would love them!
For lowkey, laidback dates and day trips, she seems to be a fan of comfy fits and more neutral colours. We can so see her in this pale blue crochet tank from IRO or tucking this black wool beaded jumper by Giorgio Armani into some sweatpants for cosy lounging. She could pair this silky white Ralph Lauren evening shirt with cigarette trousers and heels for an effortless evening look, too.
The annoying thing about J.Lo is she can pull off practically anything, so when it comes to dressing for more upscale events and dinner dates, the opportunities really are endless.
We’ve gone for a chic black shift dress by Umit Kutluk because you can never go wrong with a LBD, but we’ve also picked a pretty baby pink dress from Milly with bell sleeves and a tie detail at the back for when she wants to make more of an impact. And finally, Umit Kutluk gets our pick again with this flowing orange silk gown that we think would be perfect for Bennifer’s next red carpet appearance.
