Page 2 in the conversation "Y2K & Low-Rise Jeans" by suzieq
As another short-torsoed person, I am cautiously optimistic. I haven’t bought a pair of jeans or regular in several years now, so I am excited. I don’t think high-rises will go away anytime soon. I suspect they will have a long run like skinnies because they work for so many people.
I suppose it's all a matter of perspective - I have a fairly big & round behind lol, like Trinny Woodall (from What Not to Wear), & I remember her lamenting on the show how she 'couldn't' wear high waisted trousers with a tucked-in top, because it would make it look like her bum went on forever. Two decades later, that's now a good thing!
At the end of the day, I'm just glad to see DYOT gaining traction. Hopefully that means different rises will continue to be available to all of us
When we were downtown yesterday afternoon, near the university, we saw a few teenagers wearing cropped tops & low-rise flared jeans like in the article. However, there were plenty of college-aged girls & women wearing high-rise skinny jeans & various cropped styles. It seems just about anything goes here where we live.
