Jennifer Lopez Stepped Out in Paris in a Simple Summer Dress Everyone Needs in Their Closet

Of course, you're familiar with the "little black dress," but Jennifer Lopez has just made the case for the "long black dress" as the essential clothing for your summer wardrobe. a

The Marry Me actress, now 53 years old, has been making headlines all over the world as she and her new husband, the 49-year-old actor Ben Affleck, have been spotted in Paris.  

The couple tied the knot in Sin City two weekends ago, and Lopez has been spotted all over town as they enjoy a honeymoon in the City of Love. 

There was the time she wore two romantic Reformation dresses in a row, and now there is the time she wore a simple black maxi dress with not-so-simple sky-high heels in true J.Lo fashion.  

The singer's sophisticated dress exemplifies the adage "less is more," and the understated style is a summer wardrobe essential. 

Dresses in black can be found for much less than Lopez's Forte Forte designer pick, which retails for $724. 

Although white dresses are more popular in the summer, black dresses have their own advantages at this time of year.
