There is something very particular about the way a rom-com heroine dresses. Certain pieces automatically identify her: a pair of down-to-earth jeans, perhaps, or the kind of blazer that tells us she takes her work seriously, but still manages to look effortlessly fashionable at a moment’s notice. These are the uniforms rom-com protagonists wear as they head to their jobs as architects, bookshop owners, and magazine columnists. So if anyone is capable of pulling off such looks in real life, it’s the queen of rom-coms herself, Jennifer Lopez.

On Sunday, Jennifer—accompanied by her real-life happily ever after, husband Ben Affleck—headed out in New York City wearing a look that we could easily envision on her characters from Maid in Manhattan or The Wedding Planner.

This consisted of a fitted grayish-brown blazer buttoned over a cashmere Brunello Cucinelli scarf covered in white and light gray stripes, paired with relaxed high-rise jeans with a flared silhouette from Mother. She added her signature J.Lo touch with a glossy dark brown Hermès Birkin bag, then tied the look together with caramel suede Christian Louboutin booties and pink-tinted octagonal sunglasses by Chloé.

Ben exuded main-character energy, too. He wore a cozy gray and white cardigan with a shawl collar layered underneath a navy blue coat. To coordinate, he finished off the look with dark blue pants, blue and white Nike sneakers, a blue T-shirt, and black aviator sunglasses.

The couple was seen together Saturday, as well. That time, Jennifer had on an extremely similar outfit, though she swapped some elements for platform Andrea Wazen heels, a knit beige turtleneck, and a black Birkin.
