For the last few seasons I have actually felt as if there was a competition of who makes the highest rise jeans. Like how high can you go before making it appear like a denim bodysuit or even denim overalls without sleeves.
This said, I gather you have already detected my not so favorable view of these extreme high rises. And rightly so, as you can see from one of my previous posts about this matter:-)
Now with fall already here and winter coming up (we guarantee!), is there really still a need for these extreme high waisted jeans? I mean, we’re going to be covering up in sweaters and sweatshirts anyway, so why even bother? Also, adding the fact that if you have to remain seated for a longer period, these jeans are really not the most comfortable option… Hello those of you eternal Uber riders, or how about you who work sitting down in front of a computer for the better part of the day.
We’ve also received e-mails from our readers inquiring about where to find lower rise jeans, just to quote one: “I’m a 70’s chic and still love my hipster flare jeans which are just about falling apart! Do you know if anyone is making them as the shops in the UK are full of high rise, skinny jeans which look ridiculous on me”…. this said, what are our options?
We certainly don’t want to even consider the 80’s and early 90’s extreme super low rises. We’re actually right now not in favor of anything super or sky – high or low – rise. Why not stay in the comfort zone of “middle”, or slow-slung?!?
Scroll down to see some of the best options available right now. And let us know if you agree or disagree with us about those extremely hi-rises, as always, we love your feedback.
Thinking of Woodstock….
A perfect low-slung style is a staple
Patched and ripped and not too baggy
The wider waistband helps keeping the jeans “in place”
Cool hi-low waistline
Borderline low-waist and super edgy
The perfect “in-between” skinnies and boyfriends
Stark and classic
A perfectly comfortable mid-rise
Hippie time anyone ?;-)
