This Divisive Denim Trend Is All I Want to Wear This Fall—25 Pairs Worth Trying

Love them or hate them, low-rise jeans are officially cool again—and as someone who has been a high-rise jeans devotee for the past eight years, I'm surprising myself when I say they're all I want to wear right now.

This season's iterations aren't the same as the pairs I wore in the early 2000s (True Religion flares, I'm looking at you). The low-slung jeans I want to wear now are a little more grown up, ultra-wearable, and effortlessly cool. Just one scroll of the chicest girls on Instagram (and the F/W 23 runways) proves it. This season is all about a slouchier silhouette that pairs well with longer tops and jackets. Showing off a slither of your midriff is, of course, optional.

If you need a little encouragement, I'm sharing 25 pairs of low-slung denim jeans that feel fresh and cool and will have you looking altogether on-trend this season.
