Quick—what's the first denim trend that comes to mind when you think of Britney and Christina circa 2002? If you guessed low-rise jeans, you're correct. Come on, we all wore "hip huggers" when they resurged back then, right? (Fun fact: They first appeared on the scene back in the '60s). Well, despite the rise (literally) in high-rise denim silhouettes over the last few seasons, it seems the lower-rise styles are cropping up again. That's right—turn to some of the biggest street style stars, like Hailey Baldwin, Kendall Jenner, and Chiara Ferragni, and you're sure to spot a variety of denim picks—from wide-leg styles to skinnier finds—that hit right at their hips. While this particular look isn't appropriate for all occasions (like how a pair of nice, high-rise jeans can totally work for casual Friday with a pretty blouse), we're on board with testing out the look for off-duty life.
Go on to check out a few of the fashion A-listers who are bringing back low-rise jeans. Plus, go a bit further to shop some of our favorite pairs you can buy right now.

The washed-out look feels so on trend.
Low-rise skinnies can totally work for the office (especially if you go for something sophisticated up top like a button-down).
The distressing detail gives this relaxed fit a cool twist.
We love the wider fit here—so comfortable.
