Denim Review: White Hudson Flare

It’s time to get out of the denim box. While some of you might be thinking, summer’s almost over. Why the white jeans? We still have a few good months of summer before fall, and there is always vacation. A few months ago one of my friends was staying over, and she bought a pair of white jeans, with flare. I’m still on the fence on what I think about flared jeans, sometimes I love them, but always fall back on the skinny. But when Hudson sent these white jeans for summer, why not review them?

White Nights

I’ve just got back from New York where it’s actually summer. Back in SF, it’s a bit cooler, so I’m dressing to imagine myself in a breezy summer evening, drinking iced tea. That’s where white jeans come in handy. Summer evenings. There is something leisurely and luxurious about white jeans, like you wouldn’t go to work in them, even if your job allowed it.

Lightness of Being

One of the advantages of white jeans over regular white pants, is that white pants tend to be see-through. Jeans are sturdier and more opaque, that said, the weight of this denim is super light similar jeggings. So much they even have the fake pockets in the front. Smooth to the touch, the texture has an almost waxy feel about them, not sure if that’s the 2% elastan I’m feeling. They fit true to size, and even with the lowness of the rise, I found that they didn’t give much muffin top compared to the Hudson Bootleg. And I felt really surprisingly comfortable in them. When I showed them to my husband, he said, “You know, I don’t normally like bell bottoms, but I like these on you.”

A bit of the Hudson Branding on the jeans. The back pockets don’t have that flap which many Hudsons have. There is also some special stitching on the back pockets but it’s very subtle.To give you an idea of how wide the flare is. And yes, I’m really enjoying The Glass Castle!

Would I recommend the White Hudson Flares?

You know, I would. They’re comfortable, they fit well. I have a feeling the flared jeans will be making it’s way back, heck, I have a feeling everything is making it’s way back, and it’s all about how you rock it. I have to say, there is something a bit classic about wearing a flare or a boot cut jean. I love the fact they feel like jeggings, which for summer light weight denim is perfect. I would totally take these jeans with me to visit my family in Hawaii, as they would be perfect for there too. My only recoil is that I’m a bit messy, but then again, that never stopped me from wearing white before.

    I love these. I have never been a fan of white denim but I really love these. The flare leg is really amazing. Great look.
