Your Fashion Questions Answered~

Fashion Wrap Up's Fashion team answers YOUR questions!

Darcy Stephens asks: I have a pair of grey, pleated, capri pants that hit about mid-calf. Are they too casual for a business meeting? The attire is business casual, but they've asked the men to wear ties. The meeting is in Atlanta, so dressing for comfort in that humid and hot weather is a must. Also, if I can pull off wearing those, what shoes would be best? Right now I'm thinking I'll wear this outfit on a non-customer meeting day, but I want to know how (if possible) I could pull off something appropriate for the other meetings.

The Fashion Team says: Most style experts say that wearing mid-calf capri pants are a no no. The reason is that no matter what body type you are they give you a weird leg length. However, in some cases fashion rules are meant to be broken. We've seen plenty of looks with our own eyes, where this very theory has been disproved.

We say you can definitely wear a pair of capri pants to a business meeting. Business casual attire means different things to different companies these days. As long as you stick to the basic rules you can never go wrong. Navy, black and grey are always acceptable color palettes for business attire. Pair your capri pants with a neutral colored blouse, avoid clingy fabric or loud patterns. Top your look with a fitted or tailored blazer. Do not overdo your accessories -- minimal is always best in this situation. Depending on your company's footwear policy, an open-toed low heel or sandal would be completely appropriate.

This look that Raven Symoné wore to the Teen Choice Awards is completely business casual appropriate.

Editor's Pick~ Madewell Eyelet Cropped Top

During the hot summer months this open-weave, lace top is a must. We love the cropped silhouette, and it comes in two fabulous colors: lighthouse and true black.

Pair this cropped top with a mid-calf length, billowy skirt for the ultimate free spirited, summer concert look. It will keep you cool in the intense summer heat, but as night falls, add your favorite summer sweater or jacket for a super cute layered look.

Staying trendy and work appropriate is no problem with this top. Ankle trousers matched with a slim-fitted jacket make for the perfect office look without being too revealing.

Shop: Madewell; $90.00

Jennifer Lopez is now more than ever a household name brand. She has gone from fly to fabulous -- her relationships, philanthropic work, movies, albums and fashions keep her in the headlines constantly. Currently you can see Jennifer in the much anticipated comedy film, What To Expect When You're Expecting.

For the past two seasons of American Idol, Lopez, 42, has been in our living rooms on a weekly basis. Rumor has it that this year was her last time sitting on the judges panel of the popular reality show. However, the latin beauty is never too far from the spotlight as her world tour kicks off July 14th in Montreal.

Since launching her first perfume, Glow by J.Lo, in September of 2002, 17 scents have followed. This includes her most recent perfume, Glowing, which launched this past spring and is a tribute to her inaugural scent. In addition to representing her own brands, Jennifer endorses a handful of products and brands including: L'Oréal, Gillette Women's products, FIAT and TOUS jewelry.

Knowing and understanding trends in fashion is what makes Jennifer a style icon. She effortlessly keeps her look on the cutting edge while maintaining a timeless signature style. J.Lo has had a plethora of stylish moments on and off the red carpet over the years. Here we take a look at her ten best looks ever.
