Low-Rise Vs. Hipsters

There is no distinct difference between low-rise jeans and hipsters. Low-rise jeans are referred to by many different names, such as "hipsters," "hip-huggers" and "low-riders." No matter the name, these jeans sit anywhere between 3 and 7 inches below the belly button, creating a longer torso.

Low-Rise Jeans Throughout the Year

Low-rise "hipster" jeans are commonly worn during the summer months, with crop tops allowing the torso to be shown off. Although warm weather is a great time to show off these jeans, they can also be worn throughout the year for all-around comfort and style.

Light Denim Vs. Dark Denim

A pair of light denim low-rise jeans is perfect for the summer months, demonstrating a carefree comfortable style, while darker denim is ideal for the colder months. Darker denim will also make your legs appear longer and leaner. In addition, a darker denim will give you a more put-together appearance.


Wear a flattering top with your low-rise "hipster" jeans. The top that you wear with your jeans will show people what kind of style you are aiming for. If you wear a cropped top or a flowing tunic that covers the top of your jeans, your torso will appear longer, making your legs appear shorter.

Shoe Selection

Take into consideration the shoes that you wear with your low-rise jeans. If you choose to wear open-toed shoes, such as flip-flops or sandals, your legs will appear longer and leaner. If you choose to wear boots or tennis shoes with your jeans, your legs will appear shorter.
