Jennifer Lopez for Kohls
Maybe I've been living under a fashion rock (a scary thought, considering) but I didn’t know about the collection Jennifer Lopez designed for Kohls until an advert caught my eye when first flipping through my September issues. In all the anticipation over Missoni's collaboration with Target maybe this one went by the wayside a bit? All I know is that it’s here and, in my opinion, it's just lovely. JLo's collection is all old Hollywood glamour with a modern edge, designs that are sleek, sophisticated and fun. She’s followed in Vera Wang's footsteps by undertaking not just apparel and accessories, but home décor as well. My eye is on the clothes, as I personally love JLo's style and could see a dreamy collection coming from this collaboration. I haven’t been to my local Kohls location to shop everything yet, but I did take a peak at what’s available online yesterday and I picked out quite a few favorites. Take a look!
Leopard Cowelneck Shift Dress; $60 (sale $45)
Cowlneck Ruched Tunic; $40 (sale $30)
I love the unpredictability in this particular leopard print and I'm always about cooler tones in the pattern rather than the more yellow versions we see a lot. And this ruched tunic is exactly the sort of thing I'm looking to pair with structured blazers this fall; it would look lovely under a leather jacket, too. I like the idea of marrying soft pieces like that with edgier outerwear.
Sequin Crop Top; $84 (sale $63)
Ruched Strapless Jumpsuit; $80 (sale $60)
I'm not usually a big sequin girl, I tend to stay away from the more flashier bits, but I love the glitz combined with the soft gold tone in this crop top. If you're looking down the road to all the holiday parties ahead, this would be such a versatile piece. And as for the jumpsuit, I'm just a sucker for that trend right now and I love the character she put into it!
Marilyn Snakeskin Belted Shopper; $129 (sale $95.99)
Tall Boots; $109.99 (sale $81.99)
This bag might have to be mine. It's just the sort of thing I've been looking for lately! I love the color and the belted look; the structured handles at so much character, too. The wedge boots are the perfect combination of slouchy and chic, I could totally see them with leggings or skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. The color makes it the perfect statement piece that will undoubtedly go with everything!
Gold Tone Simulated Crystal Hammered Stretch Ring; $24 (sale $18)
Gold Tone Cuff Bracelet; $32 (sale $24)
I haven't had the best luck with stretch rings in the past, so I have to admit it's not a trend I’m loving, but I'm crazy about the detail on this one! The hammered look, the pink and gold tones and the overall shape of the ring have me sold. And the bracelet just caught my eye, I love the belt look. I can't say I would have thought of that design in a bracelet, but I love it!
