Jennifer Lopez's Bralette-and-Shorts Outfit Proves Cutoffs Have Been Replaced

Does anyone else miss Jennifer Lopez's epic street style moments right about now? You know we do. But until red carpets and street style are a thing again, we have Instagram and the occasional walk around the neighborhood as our opportunities to see what celebrities are wearing. Lopez is currently with her family in Miami and went outside momentarily wearing shorts. Her timing is perfect, as it's quickly becoming too warm for a wardrobe of just sweatpants and leggings, so let's talk about shorts.

As you know, pleated pants and jeans were deemed somewhat controversial up until recently, but everyone started wearing them last year, including J.Lo. So it's only natural that she'd wear the shorts version of the trend now that it's a balmy 88 degrees in Miami (and other parts of the country). It's another signal that denim cutoffs continue to fall by the wayside as Bermuda shorts, sweatshorts, and yes, pleated shorts rise.

You could just wear a T-shirt with your pleated shorts, but wouldn't you go with a lace bralette if you were J.Lo? She finished the look off with white sneakers and a sweatshirt draped over her shoulders. Check it out for yourself and shop our favorite pleated shorts below.
