A New Meaning to High Rise

The Ribcage Jean

September 13, 2019

They’re our highest high rise yet—reaching up to 12 inches—and the absolute have-to-have-it jeans of 2019. Inspired by a pair of ‘90s-era vintage 501® Originals, the Ribcage’s extra-high rise and button fly help define your waist. They’re designed to elongate your silhouette and make you feel as amazing as you look. And there’s a fit for everyone.

Ribcage Wide Leg

For this fit, we blended the tailored leggy look of the ‘70s with a ‘90s-inspired super-high rise. Wear them with a form-fitting top or a sleek bodysuit. It’s the perfect proportion to show off the rise and define your waistline.

“Inspired by a ‘90s Levi’s® 501® the ribcage fit is so flattering—perfectly styled high or low.”

— Karyn Hillman, Global Chief Product Officer of Levi’s® Strauss & Co.

Ribcage Cropped Flare

With this fit, you get the lengthening effect of the high rise with a playful kick flare leg, which helps balance and flatter any figure. And they’re the perfect length to show off your favorite shoes.

Ribcage Straight Ankle

 The most flattering go-with-anything jeans you’ll own. Slim through the hip and straight through the leg, you’ll never want to take these off.

Ribcage Shorts

Sun’s out. Shorts on. We love the Ribcage so much, we made them into shorts. With the same ultra-high rise as the jeans, these will be your go-to when temperatures rise

There’s no doubt that we’re at the height of the high-rise movement. Shop all Ribcage styles and our women’s new arrivals for more inspiration.
