An old trend turned into a new trend: low waist jeans
Low waist jeans are back! Hipster trousers were last big in the early 2000s – and now they're firmly back in fashion. Don't worry, though. Things have changed since the last time these revealing denims were in style. Unlike the ultra-tight-fitting models that Britney Spears and her friends used to wear, these modern jeans are loose – the bigger, the better! The key to this look is for your trousers to seem a bit slouchy. Your waistband should fit tightly, but the rest of the jeans are big, loose and totally relaxed. Dress them up for a smart date, or get a casual style for the weekend. Don't be afraid to embrace this brand-new trend!
Styling low rise jeans the modern way
Modern low waist jeans can be styled in a variety of ways. Whatever you choose to wear with yours, be sure to display the waistband. If it's not showing, what's the point of wearing a pair of hipsters? The easiest way to achieve this is by wearing a crop top. If you're bold – and the weather's warm enough – go for a high crop that shows your entire midsection. Don't want to show too much of your tummy? Find a top that's cropped to your waist, and you'll have just a sexy sliver of skin on display. If a crop top doesn't sound like fun to you, try wearing a long t-shirt or fitted, lightweight knit top, and tuck it in to highlight your waistband. Another fun look is with a long blazer: Be sure to go big and bold with your jacket!
Getting retro style with women's low rise jeans
You can achieve a fun, vintage look with low waist jeans – and that doesn't mean embracing full-on 2000s fashion! If you're going to wear a one-shoulder or spaghetti strap top with your jeans, you'll look pretty retro. To keep the style from going overboard, finish it off with a pair of chunky trainers that are thoroughly modern. If you want to wear heels, grab big, bold platforms, and opt for colourful jewellery to finish it off. Alternatively, you can mix decades for a look that's vintage, but not from any particular moment. For example, grab a pair of jeans with a low waist and a generously flared leg. This way, you'll be able to mix 1970s and 2000s fashion and come out with something that's totally now.
