“Boho chic” is a divisive phrase. To some, it conjures up low-slung harem pants worn with coin belts and tie-dye peasant blouses – the kind that give even the most forgiving fashion fans the ick. For others, it spells out the style of Sienna Miller, the Olsen twins, and Kate Moss. But now, one of the trend’s key pieces – the maxi skirt – is making a comeback on an unlikely source: Jennifer Lopez.
Spotted on the streets of Los Angeles this weekend, the 52-year-old pop superstar wore a boho-inspired Dior patchwork denim full-length skirt, a cream knitted roll-neck jumper, and a brown pair of distressed cowboy boots by Ralph Lauren. The look was topped off with a set of gold hoop earrings by Jennifer Fisher, brown Max Mara Geometric sunglasses, and a leather fringe Hobo bag from Chanel’s pre-fall 2014 Metiers D’art Paris-Dallas collection.
Later on, JLo waved the flag for the throwback style in yet another skirt, but this time, a more demure button-up style. The singer paired the piece with a black polo-neck, a forest green Gucci logo belt, and Alaïa velvet platform Hiker boots. Does this confirm that boho maxi skirts are back? Only time will tell, but Lopez certainly looks striking.
