The Only Shoes You Should Wear With Low-Rise Jeans, According to Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra's month is off to a very busy start. She just arrived back at the Mumbai airport following her and Nick Jonas's honeymoon in Oman, wearing an outfit that was made for air travel (well, at least the celebrity version of it). Chopra's look consisted of a trendy pink neon one-shoulder top and black low-rise skinny jeans, emphasis on low-rise. Truth be told, we'd much rather wear low-rise jeans for a flight than high-rise, even if we haven't personally been getting much use out of ours lately.

The thing is, low-rise jeans are just comfortable. They sit below the waist, so it's not you against the jeans every time you try to take a breath. If you agree, there's a lesson to be learned from Chopra's look, and it holds true for any outift involving low-rise jeans: Wear sneakers. Heels and even some flats can seem a bit over-the-top with low-rise denim, but sneakers ground the look and make it feel fresh and current.
