Jennifer Lopez wears jean boots with little belts on them: terrible or fun?

Jennifer Lopez never dresses in demure, subdued fashions – but that’s one of the reasons why I love her. She may be thirsty and extra, but she OWNS it. And she was giving us vintage “Jenny from the Block” in this ensemble Tuesday on the way to MTV Studios and Music Choice HQ in New York City.

I’m sure that when she put this outfit together, it wasn’t the first time she pondered “pants or no pants?” but I feel she found a compromise here, pairing a loose-fitting, long-sleeved micro mini shirt dress with a pair of knee-high denim boots, compete with pockets and a little belt. What would you call those? Joots? Beans?

The boots are from Versace’s Resort 2019 collection, and they proudly tweeted about Jennifer modeling them.

The Versace tweet elicited the response that popped into my head the first time I caught a glimpse of these boots.

Of course, the Twitterverse was abuzz with comments both positive and negative about Jen’s ensemble.

I know they’re ridiculous, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I keep looking at them and thinking they’re kind of cute. And mind you, I would never wear them – I like my denim covering my whole leg, and my hips – but for some weird reason, I don’t mind them on Jen. And, I actually like this shirtdress/boots look better than the gold satin sweatsuit-style outfit she was spotted in later in the day. That ponytail though. It’s pulled back so tightly its giving me a headache.

In other news, I have to congratulate Jennifer on being this year’s recipient of the MTV Video Vanguard Award. She’s following in the footsteps of divas including Beyonce and Madonna, with of whom have had their share of interesting fashion choices. I look forward to seeing what Jennifer will wear to the ceremony, which is being held on August 20.

    When I first read VersaceResort19 I swear I thought it said Versace Escort… This is a terrible TRYING TOO HARD LOOK. some fashion things are more Editorial than actual street wear. And yes it looks like her pants fell down. She wore this for people to talk about it so it worked. But it looks so desperate for attention. and I don’t know why at this point in her life and career she needs this so much.

    • boredblond says:

      I imagine she’s wearing them because that’s the deal she made with versace

    • Snappyfish says:

      It IS a desperate try to hard look at me look. Best in the picture? The Hermès Kelly Bag (but completely inappropriate for the train wreck outfit)

    • whatWHAT? says:

      never fails to amaze what a celeb will stoop to wear if it has a fancy label on it.

      those boots are one of the FUGGEST fashion items I’ve ever seen.

      her other outfit is also terrible.

    • Cupcake says:

      But it’s JLo you know? IMO she pulls it off and she may be the only person who can. She’s an American treasure!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      They look so terrible. The denim fabric is too heavy to stay up, their shape is awful. A few years ago Rhianna designed a very similar tall denim boot with a garter attachment, and I think they were MUCH more successful in the attempt.

      Also, those sunglasses remind me of 2008 lady gaga. JLo is a gorgeous woman, but her style is terrible and tacky.

    • Catriona says:

      She’s knocking off Ariana.

    Those things are ridiculous! It’s strange enough that anyone would wear them; it’s even weirder that someone at Versace designed them. I’d like to see the price tag.

    I like her gold outfit though. It looks soft and comfortable.

    • Esmom says:

      I like the gold outfit, too, and I bet she was so relieved to change out of that other getup, which looked so insanely awkward. I get what Versace was going for but the way she wore them, pantsless with just the white shirt, is more editorial as someone above pointed out than functional. Yikes.

  4. Swackd says:

    If you need to hold your shirt/skirt/dress down so it doesn’t show all, you either need it to be a bit longer or put pants on.

  5. Jo says:

    There’s not enough ‘no’ in the world for those boots.

  6. Alexandria says:

    I wouldn’t buy them but I’ll give points for being a fresh idea . Haven’t seen those before.

  7. minx says:


  8. Kimberly Guichard says:

    These boots are hideous. I could only imagine the ridiculous price tag attached to it.

    However I think a fashionista like Rihanna would have pulled it off better. Almost any weird outfit or accessory looks better on her LOL.

  9. Annie says:

    Thanks for the laugh!

  10. B n A fan says:

    Looks like her jeans is falling off. It’s not a good look. She should have looked in the mirror before leaving 🏠.

    • Chaine says:

      Exactly, looks like what used to happen back before cellphones if you were on the toilet and the phone rang and you had to stumble down the hall all frantic trying to pull your pants up to pick your landline because you were expecting an important call…

  11. Medusa says:

    Those are the most hideous boots I’ve ever seen and they need to be wiped from existence through a cleansing fire.

  12. Beth says:

    Yikes! Would someone pay $5 for them or even look at them if they were made by an unknown designer from Walmart? These are an example of how someone will buy and wear hideous things for too much $$ just because they’re made by a certain designer.
    What’s with people wearing knee high, heavy boots in this record setting hot summer weather? Give me flip flops, not boots

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, I made the same point above. celebs will wear anything, no matter how fug, if it’s got a fancy label on it.

      if these were from Walmart or Payless, JLo would turn up her nose at them.

      I don’t hate Louis Vuitton, but those brown LV bags they make are, IMO, HIDEOUS. I hate anything that has the logo ALL OVER IT. but celebs snap them up…

      • Snowflake says:

        Yay, i found someone else who agrees with me! Those LV bags are so fug. I had a roomate who told me to borrow hers for my first day at a new job. I told her thanks but i thought it was so fug

    • Dolkite says:

      When I worked a block from Rodeo Drive, I used to see girls in miniskirts and Ugg boots almost every day.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      “What’s with people wearing knee high, heavy boots in this record setting hot summer weather?”

      I think of this every time I see Ariana Grande. She’s been wearing thigh high beige boots nearly everyday for the past year (it seems). I keep thinking they must stink!

  13. Neelyo says:

    Those two outfits are so perfectly J. Lo. She always swings from tacky, showing the bits Showgirl to Liz Taylor Matron Collection, no in between.

  14. Aang says:

    I will always love JLo because she did such s great job as Selena but the boots are NO!

    • me says:

      Selena is my favorite movie…I cry every time at the end when they show the real Selena and her fans. Such a sad story. That was Jennifer’s best movie hands down. I love J.Lo for many reasons, except her taste in men, and sometimes her taste in clothes. But overall, I think she is a lovely human.

  15. Becks1 says:

    Oh man I feel like the odd one out saying this….but I kind of like them. not for me, lol, but for JLo on her way to MTV? they work, especially with the oversized white button down. It’s a twist on jeans with a white shirt.

    If anyone else was wearing them to any other place, I would hate them.

  16. Jane says:

    Those boots are a joke. I know that Versace boots go for around $1900.00, so it is not way out there to say these are in the same ballpark figure. To me she looks like she had a pair of jeans at first that shrunk terribly in the dryer. She cut the legs off and used two belts to keep them up. If Donatella herself designed these-she’s losing her designer touch. If she had another person design them, he needs to recalculate his/her design ideas.

  17. Wellsie says:

    “Joots? Beans?” I’m dying.

  18. Basi says:

    Of course J Lo would wear these hideously trashy boots.

  19. Nev says:


  20. Tallia says:

    If only Brit Brit and JT had these to complete their ensembles way back when.

  21. launicaangelina says:

    I love this post simply for the fact that it brought “Pants on the Ground” back into my life.

  22. Lisa Giametti says:

    They would be awesome fitted to the leg instead of slouching.

  23. Miss Gloss says:

    I saw a meme about this that cracked me up somewhere along the lines of…this is what happens when you run out of toilet paper and have to get up to find more

  24. Harryg says:

    No! Not good!!

  25. Mel says:

    It’s terrible and thirsty. She should NEVER be that thirsty.

  26. bella says:

    You know had to change because she could not walk in them! They are horrible– no matter who is wearing them and that includes RiRi

  27. Happy21 says:

    LMAO those AND the sunglasses are horrific.

  28. DiegoInSF says:

    She pulls them off, honestly.

  29. Joy says:

    That’s some fashion roadkill right there. Does she really think these “boots” look good?

  30. vesper says:

    RIDICULOUS! And I believe she was questioning her choice mid pap stroll.

  31. Melanie says:

    I really like Jennifer Lopez as far as celebrities go. I think she is beautiful and I’ve never heard her do a mean thing. But when you fashion fail on this level, you’ve lost me forever. A true fashionista doesn’t make these mistakes!

  32. Source says:

    This is an emperor’s new clothes situation.

    It’s exhausting looking at her. I can’t imagine being her.

  33. Pistachio says:

    Hmm she looks like shes channeling rihanna. And ive stopped supporting jlo until she takes down that post of that white kid with the supremist mother duping folks out of money. What happened to him was the aftermath of calling black kids the “n” word and she supports him? Just gross.

  34. Mrs. Smith says:

    Those Joot Beans (awesome @ Wellsie!) are kinda cute in a weird way. They each have a belt and little back pockets! Totally ridiculous, but fun (for J.Lo).

  35. Omrita says:

    Lol what are people talking about, JLo is thirsty and try hard, like this is some kind of fashion “mistake”? She knows they’re ridic, it’s the kind of thing she’s been doing for ages. And we talk about it. And so it goes. That’s one of the main things she’s known for, people.

    I look at this and I’m thinking, could this be *the* most laughably ridiculous fashion thing I’ve ever seen in my life? Well, it’s certainly in the conversation.

  37. jenn says:

    it’s edgy and interesting and a SMALL PART OF ME loves it!

    but when I read a tweet suggesting she looks like someone who just ran out of toilet paper and waddled out of the bathroom on a quest, I could not see anything else
