When it comes to assembling night-out looks, nothing beats using the high-rise jean as the base. It’s the most reliable piece you can wear. Cases in point: It’s ideal with crop tops, perfect for tucking in T-shirts, and well-suited for bodysuits. High-rise jeans are flattering, they elongate the legs, and there are no accidental exposures when you sit or bend over in them (which begs us to ask, why did we ever wear low-rise jeans?). Our only gripe, of course, is that many non-stretch high-rises tend to restrict and restrain.
So this season, we’re keeping high-rise jeans in full rotation for our nights out — from slim fits to straight legs to bootcuts — but opting for denim made with LYCRA® dualFX® technology, an innovative stretch fiber blend that ensures our jeans keep their shape all day, every day. Turns out, what's inside our jeans really does matter. Ahead, inspired by the new Joe’s Jeans Hi (Rise) Honey collection, made with LYCRA® dualFX® fabric, five R29ers tell us how they like to wear their shape-smoothing, waist-defining, and curve-hugging jeans when hitting the town after work. Whatever is penciled into your after-hours calendar — date nights, industry shindigs, or entertainment — we’ve got solid outfit ideas that'll have you living in your high-rise denim.
