From red carpet premieres to dreamy European honeymoons, whatever the occasion, Jennifer Lopez is a true style star. Even when she’s out for a day shopping, her outfits often provide fashion inspiration. For example, one of the summer’s most polarizing trends: its latest take on biker shorts.
The 53-year-old multihyphenate was spotted in gray knee-length spandex biker shorts in New York City over the weekend while out with her stepdaughter Violet Affleck. Lopez paired her athleisure bottoms with a classic white button-down shirt. Although the shirt was billowy and oversized, his styling choice gave the spandex shorts a more formal, structured feel. Accessory-wise, Lopez slung a logo Gucci bag across her body and slipped into a pair of off-white sneakers to complete the ’90s-inspired fit. Brown lens sunglasses and large silver hoop earrings finished off the look.
Biker shorts often garner a strong reaction — people generally either love them or avoid them. Celebrity fans of the retro trend include Kim Kardashian, Hailey Bieber and Emily Ratajkowski. Still, while leggings have become a wardrobe staple, their shorter counterparts haven’t made the leap from a trendy piece to an everyday staple. But with fashionistas like J.Lo continuing to make the case for biker shorts, who can tell what future seasons will bring?
On the slightly dressier front, Lopez was spotted wearing a chic lilac lace midi dress with super-tall metallic platform heels. More often than not, however, her daily wardrobe consists of a variety of mix-and-match workout looks. Ahead, check out more of his new biker-shorts ensemble.
