Jennifer Lopez Looks the Part While House-Hunting on the Upper West Side


There are several iterations of the “New York uniform,” and most revolve around an allegiance to either the Mets or the Yankees (it's a borough thing). Jennifer Lopez, however, chose to embody a very specific, very iconic New York stereotype while house-hunting with Ben Affleck over the weekend: The Boss.

On Saturday, March 30, Lopez wore all the hallmarks of aN HBIC: a no-nonsense slicked-back bun, an oversize black coat with shoulder pads that would make even a linebacker cower, impractical— though nonetheless impressive—heels, and impenetrable sunglasses. And let's not forget the most important accessory: a designer handbag (the Hermès Kelly bag in black crocodile) that cost more than an entire year's worth of my rent.

The rest of her look is really inconsequential by comparison—she could've been wearing a sweatsuit underneath that black coat, and the effect would've been the same. For this particular outing, though, J.Lo wore a cropped camel turtleneck sweater and wide-leg jeans with a destroyed hem. Affleck, for his part, was giving Bostonian in town for a weekend in his distressed denim skinny jeans and Carhartt jacket. We'll work on it, Ben!

Jennifer Lopez is, of course, a New York native, so technically speaking, anything she wears automatically qualifies as a New York uniform. But there's just something about this look in particular that, compared with her more bohemian LA looks, feels like a new chapter in the Book of J.Lo. She's in her bicoastal era, and she looks every bit the part.
