There are many celebrities who influence trends. Perhaps one of the biggest trendsetters around is Jennifer Lopez. At 50 years old, Lopez still has a youthful glow about her and is still amazing fans with her many outfit choices.
In fact, one fashion trend that has caught on thanks to Lopez is the white one-piece bathing suit. Although it is more simple and understated than other styles of swimwear, Lopez is making sure that people are not overlooking it anytime soon.
Jennifer Lopez has been wearing white swimsuits for months now
Fans who follow Lopez on social media might notice that the star occasionally likes to go to the beach. These past couple of months, she has also been seen wearing white swimsuits.
Back in February, she posted a photo on Instagram of her in a white bikini that showed off her toned abs and insane figure.
In early March, Lopez made sure fans come back for more when she posted a video of her relaxing in South Beach in a white one-piece swimsuit. Those who checked out her Instagram stories also got more shots from the same day.
Other celebrities, such as Rita Ora, Hailey Bieber, and Kelly Ripa, have all jumped in on the white swimsuit trend as well.
Jennifer Lopez has been a style icon for over two decades
This is, of course, not the first time that Lopez has been setting trends. One of Lopez’s most iconic moments was when she wore a plunging Versace dress to the Grammy Awards in 2000.
Although Lopez admitted that she did not think the dress was a big deal at first, many people ended up being captivated by her outfit choice. She ended up inspiring the creation of Google’s image search function because so many fans wanted to see more pictures of her in the dress.
In the fall of 2019, Lopez even walked the runway for Versace with a newer version of the dress. This new version went on sale for over $9,000, and it was quickly sold out.
Over the years, Lopez has been recognized as a real style icon. She has appeared on numerous red carpets and is constantly making jaws everywhere drop with her fashion choices.
Jennifer Lopez is also a fashion designer
Of course, Lopez has also used her impeccable fashion sense for something else – designing clothes. In 2001, Lopez founded J.Lo by Jennifer Lopez, a lifestyle brand that sells clothes, accessories, and fragrances.
Lopez’s talent started when she was young. She once shared: “Even before I learned to dance and sing and act in films I was just redesigning clothes… From the time I was little I would get a really whacked pair of pants really cheap and cut them and make a beautiful tiny mini skirt out of them because I was on a lower budget at that time. Or I’d get just a plain sweatshirt and I’d make suspenders out of it by (cutting) off the sleeves, or I’d get a little pair of my pants for my birthday and I’d open them up, sew them together, cut them off, and I’d have a really cute little pink mini skirt.”
More recently, Lopez revealed that she will be partnering with DSW Shoes to launch a footwear collection called JLO Jennifer Lopez. In a press release, Lopez said: “Since the beginning of my career, I’ve wanted to do it all – music, movies, and fashion. There are so many facets to my career, and that’s what I wanted to bring to my collection with DSW… It’s my hope that people can find shoes they love and express multiple sides of themselves, all while remaining true to their most authentic self.”
