JENNIFER LOPEZ FOR KOHLS
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
The lookbook for Jennifer Lopez's line for Kohls has been released and we are quite impressed. J. Lo is no stranger to creating clothing lines. Back in the early 90's her urban street style line J. Lo was popular in the beginning but quickly lost it's thunder due to unrealistic and sometimes tacky styles for young girls. When she decided to let that line go, she came back with Sweet Face which we thought was more true to J. Lo's stage and everyday life style. The line actually received rave reviews from fashion critics. We were quite skeptical when we heard she and Marc Anthony were doing a line for Kohls. J. Lo has amazing unapologetic style that captivates her fans and critics. However, like most celebrity designers, what they create for their clothing line never seems to quite live up to their own personal styles. To be honest, that's what people want from celebrity lines. They want the chance to wear something that that celebrity would wear. The celebrity turned designer exception to this is Gwen Stefani. Lamb is all about her personal style.
After seeing a few pictures from the lookbook, we are kind of excited about the line. I think out of all her clothing lines this really speaks to J. Lo's current style whether she's on the red carpet or just going to lunch. The dresses are sexy and curve skimming and have a bit of elegance to them. The tops are shiny and well tailored. There is a casual glamorous feel to her Kohls collection. These outfits really look like something Jennifer would wear, even the way they are styled looks the way we would see her waring it in a paparazzi photo.
The line is affordable. We're hoping that she goes above a size 14. Even Vera Wang's line went to at least a size 16. I think when designers and celebrities do these lower priced lines it should be the perfect time to experiment with making plus sizes. Even going up to an 18 would be nice.
The collection also includes home, shoes, accessories, and intimates. Check out more looks over at InStyle
The collection will hit stores in September 7th. For more information check out www.kohls.com
