It's one of the great debates of our time – high-rise or low-rise?! 🤔 The question's been dividing the fashion world for a WHILE now, and things have gotten esp ✨passionate✨ over on TikTok in a millennial vs Gen Z battle ⚔️ With celebs like Sydney Sweeney rocking a low-rise vibe and others (oh hey, Dakota Johnson) renouncing the trend completely, we can see why everyone’s getting so heated 🥵 Buttttt JSYK, tiny zips and mom fits can co-exist ppl 😇 So, we've pulled together skirts, jeans and shorts in EVERY rise you could possibly wish for 🧚‍♀️ Scroll on to see the best new bits and they might just tempt you to switch sides – high or low, it's all love 🥰


Your low-rise skirt should be giving serious Paris Hilton nostalgia, and rn – the mini-er, the better (thanks to Miu Miu’s viral creation 🤩). For a high-rise, it-girl alternative, we’re v into this☝️ blue satin moment – it's got slick cut-out deets, too ✨


If you haven't secured cargos for summer yet, wyd? They're lightweight, comfy AND you get pockets for dayzzzzz 💞 We’re loving this high-rise pair from I Saw It First, and you really DO see them first in that fresh green – it just pops 🍏 Or, live your Kim Possible fantasy in a low-slung baggy fit, like these khaki beauts from Topshop.


We like SHORT shorts 🤗 But high or low waist? We’ll have one of each, plz 🙋‍♀️ Denim + low rise + ultra tiny = big 00s energy 🦋 Team 'em w/ cowboy boots and a crochet top for the ultimate festi 'fit. For high-rise poolside perfection, it HAS to be this swirly style from Reebok💚


Jeans are deffs the most sensitive part of the hr/lr debate. For millennials, low-rise denim is giving flashbacks of bedazzled flares and flip phones 😵‍💫 But for the Gen-Z crew, it’s a H2T alternative – esp after seeing high-waisted winners, like everywhere. We're not here to pick sides, so we’ll show you one of each👖😇 Feelin' inspired to check out the other team? Looks like our work here is done 😘
