In one more tag “fashion myths”, I am going to talk about low waisted pants, a super polemic piece of cloth that, besides being stigmatized, there must be someone who has doubts about using it.
I remember those kind of pants were very trendy when I was an adolescent. The fashion transition of the 90’s to the 2000’s years included the ‘cool’ mood for hairstyle and outfits. It was time for boyfriend pants, destroyed jeans – for pants and jackets – bonnets and cropped shirts (as you can see, clothes that are all trendy again nowadays).
The boybands were a huge influence for this style and as fashion world are more democratic as the years pass by, we can’t say to someone for not to wear something. So, besides the high waisted pants are back and loved for the majority, it must be someone who wants to use the other one (the low waisted).
I’ve made some topics about both models, according to my vision, and I’ll tell you here, in order to help you deciding which one do you want to wear (or both, it’s up to you):
#1 Valorizes the female silhouette;
#2 Fits most of biotypes, once it has lycra in its composition;
#3 Is is a timeless cloth. Rescued from the 80’s, it got uploaded for nowadays and stays trendy from now on (I bet, for a long time);
#4 Is is a versatile piece of cloth – any style can wear it.
#1 It doesn’t valorize the female silhouette;
#2 It is uncomfortable, specially in the “sitting and getting up” movement (it is famous to let a part of the butt exposed);
#3 90’s and 2000’s years’ heritage, it is usually wore by adolescents;
#4 Even the skinny girls gets a little of its fatness exposed, once the low model get the fatter region of the body squeezed.
Those are only my points of view about the clothes, but, in general I believe the low waisted pant are not so trendy anymore – once it was almost completely substituted by the high waisted one. But again: you are free to use whatever you want, if you like! I personally used the low model in my adolescence and later I gave it away. Nowadays there are only high waisted pants in my closet.
