J Lo Masters Spring's Biggest Denim Trend in Split-Hem Jeans

Jennifer Lopez has been rolling out the spring 2022 trends lately, and her recent Santa Monica outing is no exception. Shortly after making elastic-waist pants look cool and rocking a Y2K-style cropped yellow sweatshirt with Nike Air Jordans, the American star is now putting split-hem jeans on our radar. While out with boyfriend Ben Affleck, she embraced a laid-back yet polished silhouette in a billowing floral blouse and casual blue denim jeans.

Lopez's balloon-sleeve shirt makes the perfect spring transitional outfit, while the split hems in her jeans nod playfully to the warm weather ahead. Her outfit heralds the comeback of reworked denim, which designers like Diesel's Glenn Martens and Loewe's Jonathan Anderson explored in their fall 2022 collections, coming up with a range of treatments that speak to the timelessness, versatility and universal appeal of the textile.

Lopez's medium-wash jeans revealed a pair of white heeled sandals, another spring mainstay which nicely complemented the soft pastel shade of her top. Completing her look with green-tinted aviator sunglasses and gold jewelry, she secured her hair in a high ponytail, putting her Ray-Ban eyewear on full display.

Complementing his girlfriend's look, Affleck opted for black jeans, a gray shirt-jacket, or "shacket," worn over a dark navy shirt, and black-and-gray sneakers. The couple showed off their styling prowess, presenting effortlessly cool, layered looks for the in-between weather. Ahead, see the lovebirds picking up Affleck's son, Samuel, from school, and get inspired to create your own transitional spring outfits.
