Jennifer Lopez’s love of fashion is no secret, and she has long talked of building a successful brand, à la Gwen Stefani. The challenge has been figuring out how to translate the Lopez look (plunging necklines, mink eyelashes) into something with mass appeal (her first attempt, a sportswear line launched in 2001, failed). This time around, Lopez has created a collection of clothing and accessories (exclusively at Kohl’s) that feels just right. There are lots of body-conscious separates, the color palette is easy to wear (loads of black, gray and shades of buff), and for American Idol fans who’ve been paying attention to their favorite judge, there’s plenty of sparkly embellishment, thigh-skimming skirts and sexy heels. The line is set to hit stores this month; at $48 for a silky halter top and $100 for a faux-fur jacket, it’ll give you goddess looks at prices that are merely mortal.

EARRINGS, metal hoops, $24; TOP, tweed tunic, $80; SHORTS, nylon blend shorts, $44; BRACELET, metal bangle, $28; SHOES, faux-suede pumps, $70; Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s, kohls.com.
