Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to jaw-dropping style. She's worn everything from controversial low-rise jeans on repeat to some of the most polarizing swimwear trends around — every time, of course, pulling it off with panache. But one of her recent looks might just take the cake for her most risky yet. In what could easily be your biggest nightmare, the singer was photographed shopping in Los Angeles totally pantless. 

She skipped bottoms for a hot day in L.A., opting for just a crisp white button-down that she wore as a mini dress with a pink sweatshirt layered on top. Lopez accessorized the look with a printed face mask, a rare Coach x Jean-Michel Basquait Beat Shoulder Bag, and chunky white sneakers from The Kooples, which almost outshone her pantslessness.

In case you hadn't noticed — and we don't blame you if you didn't — J.Lo has a strong affinity for chunky white sneakers, usually referred to as the "ugly" dad shoe. The singer has been wearing the footwear trend for years now, and this latest sighting further proves her steadfast alliance to the polarizing sneaker. It's comfy! It's cool! It's controversial! 

Chunky white sneakers pair well with everything in your wardrobe, whether it's jeans, cargo pants, dresses, or mini skirts. They're easy on your feet (most of them have a plush interior, plus the chunky sole adds a bounce unlike anything you've felt before), and the chunky silhouette adds a cool factor that regular heels and sandals simply do not. 

By now, every brand has unveiled its own version of the "ugly" dad shoe, so below, we've rounded up the best chunky white sneakers on the internet. Shop styles from brands like Fila, Ash, Nike, and Converse that'll help you channel J.Lo with ease.
