Low-Rise ’90s Straight Jeans

The low-rise ’90s Straight Jean takes a classic straight fit and adds a low rise for extra ’90s vibes. The easy 11” rise is meant to sit low for a classic ‘90s jeans look, and the straight 15.5” leg opening looks good cuffed with sneakers or boots. Find it in ultra-cool light washes, with ripped knees and frayed hems, and in rigid denim or with a Comfort Stretch Waistband that’s stretchy at the waist and rigid everywhere else.

Plus, the juuust-low-enough rise makes ’90s Straight Jeans a standout with a fitted tank top and argyle cardigan for a prep vibe.

Low-Rise Jeggings & Skinny Jeans

Dig the low trend but not into loose, wide-leg jeans? Try a jegging a.k.a. our skinniest fit in a low-rise or a skinny jean with the classic tight fit you love. If you want a little more room through the hip and thigh, try Curvy jeans designed with a 13” hip vs. waist measurement to eliminate waistband gapping. Make a fun spring look by pairing low-rise jeggings with sneakers and striped tees.

Low-Rise Flare Jeans

Dare to flare in our new low-rise take on your favorite on-trend jeans. Low-rise flare jeans are made in a hits-just-right 9.5” low rise and a classic 23” flare leg opening that scream 2000s vibes ONLY. Choose an acid or light wash jean with ripped knees to level up the Y2K look, then pair the iconic flare with combat boots or sneakers and a graphic tee for an irresistible look.

If you’re looking for another take on the wide-leg look, we’ve got you covered. Try the low-rise Kick Bootcut Jean that’s fitted through the thigh and knee and flares out into a 19” leg opening, or go for a Skater Jean with a wide leg opening that’s all about the drama or the Boyfriend Jean that’s relaxed through the thigh with a casual wide leg.

Low-Rise Tomgirl Jeans

Keep up the cool-girl style with low-rise Tomgirl Jeans that sit low on the hips with a relaxed thigh and cropped, tapered leg. Wear them with a tucked-in band tee to show off the low-waist fit or with a crop top that’s all about summer and good times.
