The low-rise trend is anything but approachable, at least when it comes to the early aughts version of it. Back then, pants featured zippers that were at most two inches long, leaving everybody who wore them vulnerable to the infamous whale tail. But with the style making a comeback in the ’20s, a fresher, more wearable take has risen in fashion. And there are few street style stars who wear it better than Gigi Hadid.
On Monday, the supermodel was seen out in NoHo wearing the 2022 version of low-rise pants, paired with a blue shacket, a white crop top, and $80 Reebok sneakers. And just as they tended to be during their ’00s heyday, her low-rise pants were the clear statement maker of the look. But unlike their former reputation, Hadid’s khaki pants looked anything but out of reach or difficult to style. Rather, I’m already coming up with easy ways to copy them.
