Low rise jeans. These three little words are known to strike fear into the hearts of denim lovers worldwide – but fear not. Gone are the days of the bedazzled Blackberry and inflatable furniture. We’re doing low rise differently this time around. Master the trend with the Abrand Jeans guide to wearing low rise jeans and how to style them for your body type.
Hang on a minute. What is low rise?
For the uninitiated, denim rise refers to how high the waist of jeans sits on your body. High rise jeans will land just above your belly button, with low rise jeans falling somewhere under your natural waist. You guessed it – mid rise is somewhere in between these.
So what’s changed?
Well, it’s a different world now. There are low rise jeans all over TikTok and Instagram – from our favourite influencers to fashion's biggest icons. With a range of styles and different fabrics available, anyone can find a pair of low rise jeans to suit them. Whether you’re keen on something with a bit of stretch or you're a rigid denim diehard, there’s a pair of low rise jeans out there for you.
What do you offer?
At Abrand Jeans, we’ve got the viral low rise jeans that you’ve been seeing everywhere. Our most loved fit is the 99 Low Straight – a straight leg jean that sits low on the hips. We’ve also introduced the 99 Low Boot (a bootcut jean that kicks out from the knee down) and the 99 Low & Wide (a slouchy jean that looks effortlessly chic). We even offer some of our low rise jeans in a Petite version, so they’re cut right for our shorter babes.
What works for different body types?
If you have an hourglass figure, you want to highlight your curves while still maintaining balance. We’d recommend choosing our 99 Low Boot jeans. These hug your hips and thighs before kicking out to balance the look – giving you an incredible streamlined look. Our 99 Low & Wide can also look incredible on this figure.
If you have a pear-shaped figure, it can be fun to play with the proportions of your outfit. Our 99 Low Straight jeans can help to elongate your legs, while our 99 Low & Wide add interest and dimension to your look to create a balanced silhouette.
If you have an athletic figure, we recommend using our 99 Low Straight jeans to create shape and adding playful layers on top. These jeans look great with a cropped top, or you can have some fun with proportions and pair them with an oversized hoodie and your favourite pair of heels.
But, the rules are, there are no rules. Trying different washes and fits can be super fun – especially when it comes to low rise. Discover our viral collection of low rise jeans today. We can’t wait to see you in them.
