Whatever cars celebrities are using to get around NYC in the pandemic, the air conditioning must be really good. Like, recreating-the-crisp-fall-air-in-a-limo good. Because even though temperatures have barely dropped below 80, some celebrities keep walking around Manhattan looking like an Autumn/Winter lookbook in everything from Ugg boots to tie-dye sweatsuits.

Since it's technically still summer for eleven more days, and will likely still feel like summer for at least another month (climate change!), Lopez could continue to remind us that she has abs in a sexy cardigan. It's about that time in the transitional season. Instead, she decided to wear a thick, cozy, $3,995 Brunello Cucinelli belted cardigan that essentially looks like a ski lodge in knitwear form. It's not as sexy as the original sexy cardigan trend but it's still got some alluring details like a belt you can cinch around the waist and the fact that it's open and flowy.

Katie Holmes hasn't christened this the new sexy cardigan but it's only a matter of time before she finds a matching bra for this new version. And while Lopez is modeling the most expensive possible iteration, Nordstrom and Amazon have plenty options for under $100.
