Nowadays there are multiple models, it is important to know which ones best suit you according to your body in order to find that perfect pair of jeans. Bell-bottom, skinny, straight cut, mom fit…there are a lot of different models. Of course, if we talk about the rise of the pants, this season there are two par excellence: high-rise jeans and low-rise jeans.

High-rise jeans

High-waisted pants are those that fit our waist well above our hips, exceeding the navel area. These types of pants greatly stylize the figure.

Rights and mistakes to combine high-waisted jeans

The zipper area

It seems like a silly fact, but the zipper area, which often goes unnoticed, can influence how the jeans look.

A Jean high-rise It has to have a freer front areaso you have to choose the size carefully so that that area is not too tight, otherwise, gaps will form and the result will not be flattering.

Always above the ankles

The length of these pants is also essential when using them. The trick is to choose models whose cut is at the ankle or even a little above.

Choose the right top

When combining them, it does not make sense to use a loose top that hides the waist of the pants, since otherwise you will hide the characteristic of the garment (the high waist) under layers.

In this case we recommend being daring and opting for tops that stick to the body as much as possible, and if not, always tuck them in. You have to get the most out of these pants and, since they are so flattering, show off your figure.

Low-rise jeans

Many of us swear never to wear this type of pants again, but the aesthetics of the 2000s have returned and, for now, it seems that it will stay for a season. This model of pants may seem risky, since having such a low rise, it leaves practically the entire abdomen area exposed.
