Jennifer Lopez Swaps Her Loud Luxury Birkins for Allbirds and White Sweatpants

Jennifer Lopez's definition of "dressing down" has always been a little more over-the-top than average. But the singer took everyone by surprise on Tuesday, May 14, with a casual outfit that was missing any sign of her loud luxury signatures.

House hunting in Los Angeles, J.Lo dressed in baggy white sweatpants, a sweatshirt, and a pair of Allbirds sneakers—without a color-coordinating Birkin bag to go with it.

J.Lo being J.Lo, her sweats were a little more advanced than a typical crewneck and coordinating pants. Her sweater, which hails from We The Free, was extra-oversized and worn off one shoulder, with an intentionally distressed hem. Her sweats are from FP Movement and are currently sold out in most sizes. She also wore two of her most-repeated accessories: a pair of Jennifer Fisher hoop earrings and tinted octagonal sunglasses by Chloé.

While Lopez didn't carry a handbag, she did stick to a range of her other usual accessories. Those included a pair of Jennifer Fisher hoop earrings and octagonal Chloé sunglasses.

What's surprising about the outfit is its accessory omission. Whether she's wearing wide puddle jeans or another monochromatic sweatsuit, J.Lo almost always carries a rare Birkin bag with a shade to complement the rest of her look. (And her collection is impressive: J.Lo's bags are often appraised to fetch up to $100,000 on the luxury resale market.) She even put this template into practice with her same Allbirds and sweatpants, heading out of her New York City apartment in April with a creamy white Birkin to match her loungewear and sneakers.

Maybe after hosting the 2024 Met Gala in glimmering Schiaparelli couture and handling business in Paris with flared jeans and a Birkin bag, maybe J.Lo wanted a day off from the loud luxury circuit. But know that she'll be back in her most glamorous form soon: Jennifer Lopez is preparing for her "This Is Me...Now" tour, which kicks off on June 26, 2024 and will have a range of impressive costumes to go with it.
