Ever since I started reviewing jeans with Denimology, I was amazed at how many beautiful jeans there were that fitted curvier shapes…meaning, I no longer needed a belt! Hudson was one of them; although they are most often seen on more svelte models, they also do fit a wider range of body types quite well. Here is model Juliana Proven in Hudson, wearing the Barbara High Waist Super Skinny . I have yet to try this one, although I’ve done the Beth Baby Bootcut and Nico Midrise Skinny with great success over my curvier shape! Higher rises are usually an even better bet, and I’m digging this pair that Barbara is wearing. She’s keeping it casual on the bottom with white tennis shoes, and spunky up top with a fluffy jacket, which shoes just how versatile Hudson jeans are. The Barbara features a 10″ rise for a “refined, elevated waistline” and a 30″ inseam which is super convenient with skinny jeans…especially these, because they really are a true super skinny fit, with a 10″ leg opening! Ankle jeans like these are great to fit with all seasons (easy boot tucking in winter and staying cool in the summer), so they are definitely a great investment, in more ways than one.
