Rumours are true: the latest Y2K trend is making its return. It’s the low-rise jean. These pants were the defining fashion trend of Paris Hilton’s era. Brands like True Religion and Von Dutch ruled the denim market. Perhaps for a reason, the trend was put to rest in 2000. The trend had been geared towards a particular body type in the past. This made it unattainable for many people. The disturbing trend has been reimagined and is now part of the current trend cycle.
Designers have updated the OG style by creating a more feminine silhouette and catering to a wider range of body types. Don’t be surprised if Gen-Z is reviving the Y2K fad. You should feel confident and comfortable in low-rise jeans.
A corset and blazer combination is chic. For a cool summer night, a pair of low-rise light wash jeans are the ideal outfit for going out.
For those who prefer a more formal style, pair your low-rise jeans and cardigan with a cardigan and platform loafers.
A classic button-down and a white tank are casual options for this trend. To complete the look, add a pair of your favourite loafers to finish it off. It was possible to take the coastal grandma into the early aughts!
For a bold look, go bold with a brightly-coloured crochet top. Jelly sandals with a heart-shaped heel add more fun to your look.
You can fully embrace the 2000s with low-rise jeans and a satiny bra shirt. A Y2K outfit wouldn’t be complete without a butterfly accessory.
This edgy style has a cottagecore twist. It features a pastel blouse and white low-rise jeans. Add a delicate pearl choker to complete the look.
Try pairing a fitted vest and low-slung jeans with a tailored vest for a masculine look. For a formal dinner, dress the look up with a pair of black heels.
Bella Hadid is a great example of how to pair baggy, low-rise jeans with a fitted baby shirt (this Phlemun’s one is backless and ideal for summer). You can’t go wrong wearing your favourite white Adidas.
