I like Hudson jeans for the fact that they are flattering for so many different body types…having an athletic body shape often means waistbands don’t always fit me well and I am pulling jeans up constantly, all day! After finally giving in and getting used to the higher waist options out there, a whole new realm of possibilities (and solutions) was opened up. The lower waist styles like the Nico for example (which is more like a mid waist), fit me pretty well, but I’ve really wanted to get my hands on one of the Barbaras! Here is Diverse City Style blogger Marisela Altamirano in Hudson, wearing the Barbara High Waist Skinny in Black! We all know a well fitting black skinny jean is a closet staple, and I’d say this would be a perfect one. For the smaller frames, it has a waist-accentuating appeal, and for the curvier folks out there, it has the ability to stay put and accentuate those curves! I love Marisela’s all black look, with a pair of brown boots, brown belt and tan furry jacket to break it up a bit and add a touch of earthy contrast.
