Yesterday, in an unexpected turn of events, The Cut declared that low-rise jeans would soon make a triumphant return to closets everywhere, and the internet lost its damn mind.
I am so stressed about low rise jeans coming back let me tell you.- monkey on the car (@87sausages) December 21, 2018
A common sentiment: Nope. Not happening. Not a chance in hell.
I’ll wear nothing before I put on a pair of low rise jeans. Got me fucked up- andrea (@vdreaa) December 21, 2018

In fact, some would rather die than put them on their bodies.
i fear extra low-rise jeans more than i fear death itself pic.twitter.com/5JmR4YuzpG- Lauren Petrillo (@lauren_petrillo) December 18, 2018
i would walk in front of a moving train before wearing low rise jeans with a crop top https://t.co/AyUzZRDTNc- دوباره میسازمت، وطن (@Jasminesface) December 20, 2018
The only time you’ll ever catch me wearing low rise jeans again is if someone forced them onto my body in the casket before lowering me into the ground- sunnz (@sunnzya) December 21, 2018
Others got intellectual about it!
My hot take: Low-rise pants are misogynistic. They’re designed to reduce women’s mobility and comfort in favor of attracting the straight male gaze.- Heidi N. Moore (@moorehn) December 21, 2018
There’s a REASON that the (male-led) fashion industry is trying to make this happen just as women become empowered and powerful.
low rise jeans are the patriarchy https://t.co/cUoua3FGk5- Monica Castillo (@mcastimovies) December 20, 2018
Low rise jeans are anti black https://t.co/plWiR5q7vG- Gugulethu Mhlungu (@GugsM) December 21, 2018
A few people were kind of into it, though!
Low rise jeans never left my wardrobe. We out here. I’ll whale tail on some Halle berry shit pic.twitter.com/VLdSV4Ejux- h (@BlondeSpectre) December 21, 2018
pls don’t hate on low rise jeans coming back... I have an extremely short waist and stupid long legs, so anything high waisted makes me look like a less cute version of this pic.twitter.com/YcFKqGJTd0- Orange Joe (@psylawn) December 21, 2018
I can’t wait until the return of low rise jeans, I have no ass and a pretty nice lower stomach + giant, protruding hip bones for no reason LET ME SHOW THEM OFF- Nicole 🌲🕯 (@BayernWitch) December 21, 2018
My take? If you don't like 'em...don't wear 'em! Hold on to your high waists for dear life, like this woman. Or don't! Your booty, your choice!
With the return of low rise jeans remember this:- CHRISTMAS BITCH (@The_Fake_Nicole) December 21, 2018
We are the captains of our own destiny. Let your ass live it's best life
