Now this is a trend we didn't see coming. Although this fall is all about borrowed from the boys touches, like brogues, tailored overcoats, and patterns such as plaid and pinstripes, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez both brought another menswear element into their wardrobes: suspenders. The two singers stepped out wearing the unexpected accessory, but the sartorial similarities didn't stop there. Both Swift and Lopez paired their suspenders with cropped sweaters. Great minds dress alike!

Lopez showed off her toned midsection in N.Y.C. on Nov. 6, when she wore her black leather suspenders with a black cropped A.L.C. sweater, gray trousers, and gray suede booties. A few days later, Swift wore a very similar ensemble, pairing Courtshop's high-rise black suspender jeans ($100; with a Sunday Best for Aritzia cropped sweater ($80;, suede booties, and her trusty Aldo handbag. Only time will tell if suspenders worn with cropped sweaters will become a thing, but if there's any two ladies who can start a trend, it's Lopez and Swift.
