The Return Of Low-Rise Jeans

The Return Of Low-Rise Jeans

It’s no secret that Y2K style is becoming popular again, but the iconic looks are being revisited and reinterpreted differently by Gen-Z. Growing up in the high-waisted jeans era, trying out these bold styles can be a bit scary. Here are some style tips that will hopefully make low-rise jeans more wearable.

Big wide-leg, low-rise jeans give off the model off-duty vibes. With bigger pants, you can dress them up or down and they’re always super comfortable. Pairing wide-leg jeans with some strappy heels can work for a going-out look. And on the other end of the scale wearing them with sneakers will give off a more casual look.


Jeans are super versatile, but sometimes the waistline of the jeans can make styling them a bit hard. Baby-tees are great tops to wear with low-rise jeans especially if the jeans are a bigger fit. The balance of the super small top with baggy jeans works really well together.


A misconception of this trend is that you have to be showing skin, but there are ways to style it so you don’t have to be uncomfortable. There are so many types of bodysuits and so many ways to style them with this jean trend.

 I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, you can use bodysuits to dress these jeans up or down. A lace bodysuit would be a great look for a date night. Or a full turtle-neck bodysuit would be great for someone who doesn’t want to show too much skin.

If you’re not into super tight clothes wearing relaxed-fit jeans and an oversized t-shirt is for you. Pairing some baggy jeans with a huge shirt and some sneakers will give a street-style look. If you want to show a little bit of skin you can tuck part of the shirt underneath your bra for a cropped look.

Any way you style it low-rise jeans can be really comfortable and trendy. Unlike the origin of this trend in the early 2000s, you don’t need to show everything or wear super tight jeans. If you want to show a little whale-tale in the back you can, or you can cover up a bit more while still looking fashionable.
