Hallelujah for High Rises
What a difference an inch can make. This season, jeans with an eight-inch rise or higher are replacing the low-slung seven-inchers that have plagued grown women over the past couple of years. Joining them are higher-waist panties, like this precision-cut pair, designed without elastic or trim to provide smooth, invisible coverage. 

"Straight Leg 545" jeans, Levi's, $44,; high-rise panty, Commando, $32 each,
