Jennifer Lopez's extensive career can be broken down into a series of era-defining style moments. The Grammy-nominated singer's evolving style and stunning transformation from her time on "In Living Color" as a Fly Girl to her breathtaking red carpet appearances and jaw-dropping looks at the Met Gala cement her status as a fashion icon. 

Fashion Bomb Daily pointed out that Lopez's style early on was dominated by silky, curve-grazing dresses. Today, Lopez has kept her signature figure-hugging pieces with a touch of glamour, per i-D. As the Emmy-nominated performer racks up accolades, her red-carpet appearances and off-the-clock street style have inspired tributes to her many looks. Of all of Jennifer Lopez's looks, her sheer Versace dress with the plunging neckline at the 2000 Grammy Awards stands above the rest.

However, Lopez's street style is equally as gorgeous — and a lot more accessible.

Jennifer Lopez rocked the biker short trend in New York City

Jennifer Lopez regularly conquers controversial trends and makes them her own. In February 2021, she stepped out in pleated high-waist jeans (the comfy but dividing pants style), per Who What Wear. Lopez is responsible for catapulting some of the most iconic fashion trends from the 2000s, including the velour tracksuit, so it's no surprise that these loose pants found their way into her closet.

This wasn't the only time her pants choice sparked conversation. While some have been waiting to ditch biker shorts since their resurgence, Lopez has welcomed the look with open arms. The trendsetter was at her most casual in gray biker shorts and an oversized white blouse while out with stepdaughter Violet Affleck in New York City, Daily Mail reported. The style icon paired her everyday look with off-white sneakers and a Gucci Supreme Attaché shoulder bag, giving her minimalist outfit a high-fashion feel.

Copy her casual, cool, and confident look

Jennifer Lopez proved that the biker shorts look doesn't solely belong in the gym. The Zoe Report credited style icon Princess Diana for the trend's initial popularity, which means you can now tell naysayers that your look is inspired by a royal. 

The Gym People's High-Waist Yoga Shorts feature convenient pockets and a thick waistband that smoothes out your curves. With nearly 22,000 reviews, the shorts' high Amazon rating is due in part to their stretchy, breathable fabric. Plus, they will only cost you $18.99. 

If you're style-conscious and looking for more ways to add sustainable fashion to your wardrobe, Quince's Flowknit Ultra-Soft Performance Biker Short is made from recycled plastic. Not only will you look great, but you'll feel great, too.

But your outfit isn't complete without a chic oversized shirt. H&M's Oversized Poplin Shirt has a 4.4 rating because of its light, soft fabric. It's also the perfect length to cover your biker shorts. In addition, H&M's Shirt with a Sheen comes in a wider range of sizes and has a fancier feel. This top can easily transform from an everyday look to an office staple.
