Jennifer Lopez Gives Her Ruffled Gown a Grungy Twist in Unexpected Beat-Up Combat Boots

Jennifer Lopez previewed yet another bold look from the set of “Shotgun Wedding” in the Dominican Republic today.

Sharing an image taken by makeup artist Kate Land on her Instagram today, the ensemble had an equally glam and grungy touch; it kicked off with a bustier-style gown complete with a tulle coating, ruffled skirt and sheer paneling. To give the frilly design an unexpected twist, Lopez then laced up a set of beat-up black combat boots with worn-in leather uppers and a lace-up finish.

The film, which also stars Josh Duhamel and Jennifer Coolidge, centers around a couple’s extravagant destination wedding which gets disrupted as the bride and groom and their guests are taken hostage.

Combat boots and hiking-inspired styles are the new norm amongst celebrity style trends, experiencing a revitalization along with a dew other silhouettes from the 1990s. From brands like Prada along with Bottega Veneta and Dr. Martens, these lug-sole boots offer ease of wear with an edgy-chic appeal. This season, you’ll spot utilitarian boots on the likes of Kylie Jenner, Gwen Stefani, Eva Longoria and more major stars.

J-Lo herself is a big fan of the classic lace-up silhouette. In November 2020, for example, the “On the Floor” singer stepped out of a sleek convertible as she posed for the footwear retailer in a classic little black dress. The musician then elevated the number with her choice of a black leather shearling coat to style the look for fall.

As for footwear, the grungier appeal of the outfit continued into her lifted boots. The platform pair comes from Lopez’s eponymous collection with DSW and features smooth faux leather uppers. The lace-up design and buckled ankle closure helps offset a towering 5-inch block heel and an added 1-inch platform boost.

It was just last year when the “Let’s Get Loud” singer dipped her own toes into the footwear industry. Though she had previously worked with a mix of brands on collaborations and campaigns, the JLo Jennifer Lopez collection at DSW is the musician’s first solo line; the label includes a variety of stylish footwear ranging from sky-high platforms and glittering pumps to strappy sandals, all retailing from $59 to $189.

As if all of her titles were not enough, the past few seasons alone, the “Hustlers” actress also has been featured in major fall ’20 campaigns as well as a few top names for spring ’21, too. She modeled for Versace, stars in ads for Guess and Coach on top of serving as a judge and executive producer for “World of Dance.” She also released a new J-Lo Beauty line earlier this season as well.
