If you monitor Jennifer Lopez‘s outfit choices as closely as we do, you probably noticed a recent shift in her style. The superstar has been finding inspiration in what we like to call a “’70s-inspired diva” mode, a stark contrast from the very JLo outfits (think cutouts and lots of leather) she usually wears.

We first noticed something brewin’ when she stepped out in a pair of pleated Alice + Olivia gaucho pants, a heavily-embellished gold Naeem Khan top and Melinda Maria jewels last week. That top knot was classic Lopez; the rest of the outfit, not so much.
Next, the American Idol judge selected a sky blue, knee-length Emanuel Ungaro turtleneck dress, flashing her impressive leg muscles thanks to that front slit. She topped the design with an oversize ivory Atea Oceanie coat while out in N.Y.C., for a look that reminds us of something Amy Adams character would wear in American Hustle.
And most recently, the singer chose a peter-pan collared Valentino mini, for the most girlie look we’ve seen on the star in a while. (Emma Stone will definitely be wearing it next. Or Kris Jenner.) Add some serious shades and platform Mary Janes and the star’s “Miss Lady” look is in full effect.
