I’m taking notes.
Jennifer Lopez has worn many jaw-dropping outfits in her time — that green Versace dress was only the beginning. The singer is known for her out-there sartorial moments that leave people speechless, and that’s exactly why she’s a fashion icon. Style is supposed to spark conversation; it’s about testing the limits and making people think, and J.Lo is truly the queen of out-of-the-box fashion thinking. She wears unique outfits, but she also knows exactly what works for her, throwing in secret style hacks here and there.
The singer’s latest look is proof of, well, all the above. Lopez, who regularly shares 🔥#OOTD shots with her 252 million followers, just did it again with a jaw-dropping ‘gram that made me want to toss all my loose-fitting, billowy dresses aside for a waist-snatching style hack Lopez has worn time and again. The singer sported an ultra-sexy beige midi dress from Magda Butrym that was not only form-fitting and flattering in all of the best ways, but it was designed with center-front ruching that snatched everything.

Lopez is no stranger to a shirred fashion moment; she’s worn the waist-snatching detail in shirt-form (which I also love!), but this dress easily takes the cake. If you’re not familiar with the design hack, it's pretty simple: The fabric of a ruched (or shirred) piece is typically pulled inward, which, in turn, pulls everything else inward to create the illusion of a more snatched waist. It’s sexy! It’s elegant! It’s perfect for this time of year! And I want in.
But that’s not the only style trick Lopez was wearing. She went with an optical illusion PVC heel — also known as Cinderella heels because they basically look like glass slippers — that Amal Clooney is also a fan of. Rather than wearing a black pump, Lopez slipped into the clear style that creates the illusion of longer legs thanks to its barely there design. They’re nearly invisible, so I don’t blame you if you had to do a double take to see if Lopez was, in fact, wearing shoes or not.
Snatched waist plus longer-looking legs? Lopez’s hacked her look with two style staples that 100 percent deserve a spot in your lineup. Shop shirred shirts and dresses, as well as sexy PVC heels, below.
