As a Spanish girl from Queens, I grew up idolizing J.Lo. And whenever I needed guidance, to my grandmother’s dismay, I would never ask myself “What would Jesus do?” but “What would J.Lo do?” It only felt right. Jenny from the Block was my religion.
But the only time in which channeling Jennifer Lopez’s spirit didn’t work was when I was trying to deal with wardrobe malfunctions. Not because she wouldn’t handle them flawlessly, but because I’m pretty sure she’s never had one. Just like with aging and bad haircuts, wedgies and awkward shirts tucks are just some things J.Lo probably doesn’t have to worry about. Instead, she’s probably focused on not blinding anyone with her incredible highlights.
It’s only natural that as I’m deciding how to dress stylishly for winter that I would turn to J.Lo for guidance like I always have. Recently, she’s taught me how to wear Ugg slides unironically and the importance of a great blanket coat. And when she recently stepped out in one of Meghan Markle’s go-to coats, J.Lo iconically demonstrated how to deal with an awkward shirt that always comes untucked.
Her answer to the common wardrobe malfunction? Not wearing a shirt at all. Instead, J.Lo opted to wear a Wolford Jamaika Thong Bodysuit. Come winter I always have a hard time accepting that I have to wear pants, mostly because my shirts and sweaters of varying lengths don’t always tuck into them seamlessly. And nothing ruins a look more than an awkward pants bump or a shirt that won’t stay put. Bodysuits are an obvious fix, but it took seeing J.Lo wear one to fully understand how transformative they can be.
J.Lo’s particular Wolford Jamaika Thong Bodysuit is a favorite amongst other celebrities like Céline Dion, who has been known to wear hers with elaborate couture outfits. The brand is typically pretty pricey, but J.Lo’s exact bodysuit, which typically retails for $195, is on sale for just $50 at Nordstrom Rack right now. And if, like myself, you plan on stocking up on as many bodysuits as possible to avoid any possible shirt tuck mishap this winter, more than a couple of Wolford’s best-selling bodysuits are on sale for as low as $41.
Since they’re Lopez-approved, the Wolford bodysuits are selling out quickly, so definitely stock up on them ASAP. After all, that’s exactly what J.Lo would do.
