Low rise jeans don't look good on everyone. In fact, unless worn correctly, they look dreadful on most people. If you wear low rise jeans the right way, however, they can be sexy. With the right accessories and a good fit, low rise jeans can leave you looking like a million bucks.

Search for a pair of low rise jeans one size larger than you normally wear. It doesn't matter how thin you are, if your pants are too tight and hug your hips extremely low, your fat will bulge out of the sides.

Pick out a thick belt. Low rise jeans look terrific with a decorative and stylish belt, especially if it's at least 1 1/2 inches thick. This also helps keep your larger-than-normal jeans up if they become too loose throughout the day.

Pick a straight leg, or boot-cut pair of low rise jeans and make sure they are the right length. To judge the length, take off your shoes. If the jeans just hit the floor without shoes on, they should be the right length.

Wear a shirt that falls about an inch below the waist line of your low rise jeans. This way, if you sit down, it isn't noticeable if your belly hangs out a bit. Let's be honest, there aren't many women who can sit down without at least a small roll.


If you plan on wearing extremely high shoes, try on the shoes before you buy a pair of low rise jeans.
