Tops to pair with low-rise jeans

Fashion lovers, listen up: low rise jeans are officially back and better than ever. The Y2K trend has become mainstream, and in addition to deciding which pair is your favorite, you’ll want to figure out which tops you’re going to wear with them. There are a few different details to look for in a shirt you’ll wear with low-rise jeans, depending on your personal style and the outfit you’re putting together. Cropped tops will emphasize your belly more, while peplum tops and peasant blouses have coverage without looking too oversized. The best part is that you can wear the same pair of jeans with a different top every day for a totally new look.
