J.Lo Wore Jeans Covered in Fake Mud Stains—I Have Questions


Of all the jeans trends we predicted for this year, this isn’t one I included on my 2024 bingo card. Stepping out in New York over the weekend, Jennifer Lopez brought new meaning to the notion of high/low dressing. Kitted out in a smart turtleneck and tailored coat, the singer veered away from her typically polished style, reaching for a pair of faux-muddy jeans to complete her look.

Whilst Lopez is a known fan of wide, baggy jeans her preference normally ranges between light wash and dark wash denim styles, occasional choosing pairs embellished with large rips. This time, however, Lopez dabbled with a growing trend that’s proving divisive across the board.

Whilst workwear-inspired designs have been trending for the past few years, this on-the-nose take has been slower to catch on. Although they’re a far cry from the raw denim and chore jackets that, to my surprise have been rising in popularity, perhaps J.Lo’s adoption will push the muddied jeans trend into the mainstream.
