For the past few years, skinny jeans were the go-to style for casual days. At first I resisted, thinking they wouldn’t look good, but now, it’s a staple. To be honest, I missed my boot cut, and trying out other styles. The Hudson flare jeans one of the styles I’ve been craving. Particularly with the return of the clog, it’s got an ease of attitude, the flare is relaxed, just enough to show, but not so much to be a bell bottom.
I wore these a few times to get a feel for how they responded to wear. When I used to buy cheaper denim, they’d stretch out buy the end of the day, like a lot of premium denims, these Hudson’s with 2% elastine really maintain their shape while still forming to the shape of my body. These jean are relatively lightweight and have some movement, they feel soft to the touch, though you can feel the fiber damage caused by the distressing process. Though when I put them on, the wash didn’t look overdone at all. If you’re into subtle pocket’s (which I am) these jeans are perfect, as they only have a subtle label on the edge of the back pocket.
Wear It With…
When it comes to flared jeans, heels are the best bet. The thing I like about heels and flared jeans, is that unlike skinny jeans where if you are wearing platforms, and are petite, you just look like a petite person with big shoes. As much as I love crazy shoes, sometimes it’s nice to feel tall, and boot cut jeans give that elongating effect. Here I’m wearing the boot cut jeans with 3″ platforms and 6″ heels, it’s got the clog nod with the wooden heel, but sandals instead. I recently go this tissue thin floral blouse from a local boutique and while normally, I’d wear something more fitted, lately I’ve been feeling the slouchy tops.
