The Rad Return: Lowrider Jeans
One of Alexander McQueen’s most rebellious and game-changing silhouettes. A symbol of freedom for skater kids and hip-hop stars. Without it, Christina Aguilera wouldn’t have been as “dirrty”, while Britney Spears would have remained “not yet a woman”. One of the most divisive pieces in ’90s street-influenced fashion makes a comeback even at demure brands such as Valentino and Oscar de la Renta. Yes, you need a good bod. No, hairy guys, it’s still gross when you bend over. But we cannot deny the blithely cool, cheeky attitude that comes with it. The best part now: It’s to be worn as much with universally flattering, tucked-in shirts as it is with cropped tops.
