Red Carpet Re-Do: Jennifer Lopez Wears a Trash Bag and A Beehive Nest

Dear Ms. Lopez, We know you have a lot of events to dress for, and you like to be a fashion risk-taker, but a Hefty bag does not a red carpet outfit make. And next time your hairstylist tries to convince you that a beehive-meets-lawn-mower look is so hot right now – just back away from the hairspray. Love, SHEfinds. P.S.: Cute shoes though

What she did wrong:

Leather is great in small doses – a fitted motorcycle jacket or leggings, for example. A whole heap of it on your shoulder is not.

If you do wear said leather heap, try to avoid statement necklaces that are actually cool, but get lost in this hot mess.

What she should have done:

This Splendid Modal Jersey One Shoulder Dress ($81.90, down from $117) is sexy and understated, and the jersey is super soft – and you won’t feel a like dominatrix wearing it.

A Crystal Encased Cluster Necklace ($34.99) is a great way to glam up a basic LBD. Plus – this cluster-style is a huge trend in jewelry this spring.

Or if you’re feeling color, take a cue from J.Lo’s turqoise necklace and go for this Kate Spade Faceted Stone Statement Necklace ($195). We also love this look with a white tee-shirt and jeans.

We actually love J.Lo’s Jimmy Choo clutch, but if that’s not in your budget, try this chic and cheap alternative: this Nordstrom Pleated Flap Silk Clutch ($38). It’s super sleek and versatile for any event.
