One of the hottest fashion trends we've seen lately is Coastal Grandmother, a TikTok-born movement that embraces light, neutral colors, soft fabrics like cashmere and cotton, as well as flowy silhouettes. And while we've been trying to transform our lives into a Nancy Meyers movie, it seems that one celebrity is also on board with the fad: Jennifer Lopez.

Fresh off her whirlwind elopement with Ben Affleck, the Marry Me actress traveled to Paris to celebrate her 53rd birthday weekend in style. And while she was there, the star was spotted in a comfy, but chic outfit that definitely fit within the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic.

Lopez and Affleck were seen taking a cruise on the River Seine with their kids, and while walking to the boat and holding hands with her 14-year-old son, Max, we got a full look at Lopez's ’fit. The ensemble included a white sundress covered in orange flowers (similar to this design from City Studios), which she layered under a light vanilla cashmere cardigan from Falconeri ($249), and paired with brown suede mule sandals from Saint Laurent ($26) and aviator sunglasses. Lopez was also seen carrying a brown Diana mini tote bag from Gucci ($3,300).

In addition to Max, Lopez's other child, Emme, joined the festivities, as well as Affleck's daughters—Violet, 16, and Seraphina, 13—who are all pictured below, sitting on the deck of the boat near the birthday girl.

Don't be shocked if “Coastal Grandmother” becomes the hot new birthday party theme. Thanks for the inspo, J.Lo.
