Low Rise Jeans - Still in Fashion
Low rise jeans have been a part of the history of American fashion for quite some times. Low cut pants are made of denim material and they were originally worn by Dhunga soldiers, and this name went on to be called Dungarees.

Around the 60’s low cut jeans were known as “hiphuggers”
The trend of low cut pants continued on through the 70’s, not even being close to fading out, as the lover’s of disco took on the trend of wearing them all over the country, spreading out the popularity. Now this look was being sported as “bell” bottoms. The time that the low cut pants fell out of fashion, was during the 80’s and 90’s when people started to wear pants that were higher up on the waist along with the narrow seaming.
However, hipsters did not completely get eliminated from fashion, because around the late 1900’s and 2000’s was when the popularity of them arose again. Most teens and young adults that were in the twenties rebelled against that high waist look with the pants that their parents wore, because they simply just did not think that it was cool. Most of the brands that sale jeans for teenagers today only predominantly sale low rise jeans, because they know that is what is preferred by both young adults and teens. Believe it or not, there are even middle aged adults that prefer to wear low rise pants, as opposed to the high waist type jeans.
There is a wide range of “rise” span on low rise pants. The rise of hipsters normally refers to the distance between your waist and the crotch area of the jeans. Most typical pants that are not low rise can vary anywhere between 12-13 inches in the rise. With hipsters, the rise can be as low as 3 inches. There some designers that have even created 1 inch rise pants with 1 inch zippers on them! This is the “ultra low rise” jean.
