As we move toward summer's last lap, your beauty daydreams may be of the moody lipstick, bouncy blowout, which-hair-bow-best-matches-this-oversize-sweater variety. But one glance at Jennifer Lopez's gym-born body (and slew of recent social shares) is sure to force you back to the present moment and the heat of the season, which, for Lopez, seems to mean less clothing, more fitness.
The pop star stepped out yesterday in Miami in a set of skin-skimming separates that drew eyes to toned abs and arms alike. Above-neck, a sleek ponytail, gilded hoops, and a set of signature aviators proved that going to the gym can, in fact, be a glamorous endeavor. The look closely follows a series of vacation-minded snaps—shared on Instagram—centering on impossibly sculpted glutes and legs, strong shoulders, and washboard abs, each accompanied by Lopez's pared-down, perfectly sporty slicked-back bun. The lesson? While transitional aesthetics may be at top of mind, the time is right to embrace summer's trend towards workouts, and to carry that Lopez-inspired ethos with us all year long.
