Can I just take a moment to say how happy I am that low-rise jeans are back? I mean, I did it — I got on board with the high rise as it rose higher and higher, and actually, some of my absolute favorite pants have a high rise.
But…there’s something about those low-rise jeans. That effortlessly cool, laid-back, casual style that evokes feelings of nostalgia (um, if you’re as old as I am, that is).
But regardless of whether you remember them from the first time around, Gap’s Low-Rise Stride Jeans are ’90s-style perfection.

Gap’s Slouchy Low-Rise Jeans Are Bringing Back ’90s Style
With a 10-inch rise, these jeans sit low around the waist without venturing into that dangerous is-my-bum-crack-showing-when-I-bend-over zone. And since the rise is low but not too low, these jeans are still high enough that muffin top isn’t an issue.
The fit is loose through the hips and thighs, with a relaxed, full-length, wide leg. And because these low-rise jeans come in five different lengths, finding the right fit is easy (and that perfectly distressed cuff doesn’t have to be hemmed off). I tried both a 28 short (29-inch inseam) and 28 regular (30.5-inch inseam) and found that I like having a bit more length with the wider leg. They’re perfect with lower heels (most of my boots and shoes have a bit of a heel), but they’ll still look good with sneakers as well (since puddle jeans are still a thing).
The fabric is non-stretch denim, but it does has some give and is much softer than most of the rigid denim I’ve tried. They break in with each wear, and become softer and comfier the more you wear them.
In Addition To Jeans…Gap Has Elevated Basics & Cute Kids’ Clothes
Gap has a ton of great basics-with-a-twist right now too, like the featherweight smocked top I’m wearing. I love the button detail and puff sleeves! Tops like this — the ones that have a bit of a feminine edge to them — are perfect for pairing with the loose, distressed denim of the low-rise jeans.
Of course, Gap always has the best clothes for kids as well. I made the mistake of showing my daughter, Greenlea, a few things from Gap’s spring line for kids, and she HAD to have this outfit. She can’t wait for spring, though — she’s been wearing this exact outfit with leggings underneath.
I always love shopping for the kids at Gap because of the prices and quality.
