Don’t we all love a glorious comeback? Ditch the high-waist jeans cause things are about to go low, low, low.
Fashion does love to bring back trends every now and then, and that’s the beauty of it. But some just don’t make it to the cut at all—even when supermodels and celebrities make it look really good. By really good, we’re talking Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Rihanna, and pretty much anyone from the early 2000s. They were often accessorized with body chains and/or visible thongs, but how come it remains so divisive?
While it did give the midriff some much needed air time, some people think it looks like it’s sagging—but for a good cause. Exposing the belly button (and the hip bones!) instantly made you look taller. Blame it on Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner for constantly being spotted wearing the polarizing trend, and Maris Racal for her TikTok where she realized it gave her an hour glass figure, and now it’s everywhere. Out with the old, and in with the new old. Did that make sense? While you’re at it, scroll down below to see how these celebrities and style icons wore low-rise jeans.
WEAR THEM WITH BODY CHAINS
Take it from the Y2K queen herself. Paris wore low rise jeans every day and night, often paired with the tiniest cropped top or tracksuit, and some kitten heels. She even wore them low to the red carpet!
PAIR IT WITH A WHITE CROPPED TOP AND SLING BAG
File this under the tell me that you work out without actually telling me you work out challenge ’cause Maris is nailing the model off-duty look.
SOME SHEER PLAY IF YOU DARE
Not for the faint of heart, but it’s fun to take risks every once in a while. Wear your low-rise jeans with hints of sheer and a whole lot of attitude.
SUIT UP IF YOU FEEL DRESSED DOWN
If you aren’t ready to go all out yet, pair a statement top (or bikini) with a tailored suit and some amazing trousers.
COZY UP IN AN OVERSIZED COAT
It would be a crime to leave Ms. Bella off the list. Low-rise jeans have been her go-to for two years now and she’s basically worn them with everything from cropped button-downs, knitted vests, to trench coats.
DENIM FOR DAYS
If you don’t feel like dressing up or you just want to do some errands, keep it low-key and wear your jeans with a denim jacket and some comfy sneakers.
PUT A CORSET AND SOME PLATFORMS ON
Wanna feel like a Bratz doll? Ditch the high-waist jeans and put on some amazing platform shoes and a furry bucket hat to pair with your corset.
BRING THE NOUGHTIES BACK WITH A SCARF TOP
Another early 2000s trend you have to visit is the scarf top. It’s a summer staple that will never go out of style.
ALL TIED UP
Keep it flossy with a lace-up top and some visible thongs. Trust us, it looks immaculate in white.
