Hudson Barbara High Waist Jeans in Hideaway Review

hudson-jeans-barbara-high-waist-hideaway-review

My review this week is on the new Hudson Barbara High Waisted Skinny Jeans in Hideaway. I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed any Hudson Jeans here on The Jeans Blog (only at my previous job, DenimBlog) so it’s a nice, refreshing change to give you my opinions on one of their pairs of jeans.

The Fit: The Barbara is Hudson’s high rise jean with a 10 inch rise, so it sits just below your belly button (depending on your torso length) and is incredibly comfortable. I know a lot of people mistakenly think that high rise jeans means discomfort and restriction, but with these, it doesn’t at all. The fabric is so soft and stretchy, the rise is welcome. Not only does it hold in every bit of you, including your muffin top, but it gives you a very flattering silhouette. The inseam is around 30 inches, so it is a full length on me as I’m 5ft 5, and the leg opening is 10 inches, making them a super skinny, high rise jean. You can see in the modelled photos below just what they fit like, but it’s amazingly flattering and comfortable.

The back pockets on these Hudson Barbara jeans though are just ok. I’m very particular with my back pocket placement as you know and I love them to be sculpting and shaping, but for my butt, these back pockets are a bit too big. I find the pockets to be a just a touch too long and spaced a bit far apart. This means for me that they aren’t as uplifting or as flattering as I know they can be when placed and sized a bit differently. It’s not a huge turn off though as I have worn these jeans so many times already, there’s just room for improvement.

Justin Bieber Wears Rawedge Cuffed Overalls Shorts

justin-bieber-rawedge-denim-short-overalls

Justin Bieber arrived at NOBU in Tribeca, New York City a little while ago, but he seemed to be in a bad mood. He exited his ride and flipped someone off in front of fans while walking inside. I wonder what caused Justin to do that? I know he permanently has the paparazzi on him and is always in the media, so maybe it’s getting a bit too much now.

Justin is actually becoming somewhat of a style icon now though, experimenting with his fashion choices and fits. For this unique and quirky look here, he chose a pair of these Rawedge Cuffed Overall Denim Shorts in Indigo to pair with his paint splattered white t-shirt, long socks, and sneakers. He finished it off with some round sunglasses and a baseball cap.

Not many men would be brave enough to wear short denim overalls at all, let alone an outfit like this, so I do commend Justin Bieber for being brave, confident and thinking outside the box when it comes to his looks. I wasn’t sure on it at first, but he pulls anything off with his confidence, so it just works.

I actually really love the t-shirt and the Rawedge Denim Overalls though, they are pieces I would wear myself. Have you seen how detailed and gorgeous the denim overalls actually are? They have a printed ocean wave picture on the inside of the bib, now that’s something we never, ever see! I love them! Have any of you guys tried them? Buy these denim overalls online at Pink Dolphin for only $90 and other denim at East Dane.

Our Summer Denim Picks From MOTHER & Lyst

double-time-undone-hem-maverick-1944-173_01

This current heatwave that we are experiencing right now has fully put us in the mood here at The Jeans Blog for summer. As we are approaching August, the temperatures are only going to rise and it wont be long before we’re longing to lounge on the beach. One thing about summer though is that it always puts me in the mood for new denim, especially the fancy, fun and gorgeous pairs of jeans that don’t always look that great in wintertime. So, we have teamed up with Lyst to bring you this post!

The thing that makes denim so special in summer is the fact that it truly becomes the focal point of your outfit – it’s not covered up by layers of clothing. It’s hot, so of course you will only want to wear a little tank top or cropped top, while your feet enjoy some sandals. Now is the time to show off those beautiful pairs of jeans that you have been longing to rock. A cropped flare with undone hem detailing is ideal, a slouchy boyfriend with distressing is comfy, while a classic skinny in some gorgeous washes are an absolute must.

The Jeans Blog and Lyst have brought you our top 6 MOTHER denim choices for the summertime and we couldn’t be more excited! We have chosen everything from a full length skinny to a cropped flare, with a different wash for everyone. Whether you fancy dipping your toes into the pool of light blues or scaling the ocean cliffs for some on trend grey, we have you covered. If white is more your thing and you want to reflect that scorching sun, there’s a perfectly stylish, raw hem jean for you. If you might prefer darker blue jeans, don’t worry either, you can brighten those up with your accessories and a white top! What are your summertime favourite jeans right now?

Nicky Hilton Wears PAIGE Jimmy Jimmy Denim Shorts

nicky-hilton-paige-denim-jimmy-short

Nicky Hilton was pictured making her way around New York City while running some errands. She has recently given birth just over a week ago to her daughter, Lily Grace Victoria, and I think she looks amazing! Don’t you?

Nicky wore one of her favourite denim brands – PAIGE. She opted for the PAIGE Jimmy Jimmy Denim Shorts with a black and white pinstripe shirt, some black flats and a black tote bag. We spotted her in her PAIGE Jimmy Jimmy Maternity Denim Shorts a little while ago while she was heavily pregnant, but judging by the non existent elastic panelling at the waist, she’s straight back into the non maternity denim.

I have to say that when it comes to denim shorts, I think the PAIGE Jimmy Jimmy’s have an amazing fit. They aren’t too tight or too loose, plus the inseam length is perfect. Not to mention that they are incredibly comfortable. I have them in the old Tigerlily wash (don’t laugh at these old photos!) which I purchased back in 2011 and I still love them today! So if you have been toying with the idea of getting a pair, I definitely recommend them to you! I’m sure Nicky Hilton would too! Buy PAIGE Denim online at Shopbop.com.

Olivia Palermo Wears Black Orchid Jude Jeans

olivia-palermo-black-orchid-jeans

Style icon Olivia Palermo, got snapped in Noho in New York City a few days ago after an evening out with a friend. I’ve always been a huge fan of her personal style, there’s something about her looks that always have a Parisian chic vibe to them and they are always so well thought out. Not only does she love high fashion, but her love of denim shows through most of the time too.

What jeans was Olivia wearing this time? She chose her Black Orchid Jude Mid Rise Skinny Jeans in Troublemaker to pair with a Tibi White Shirt, which she styled with a scarf by PAIGE and a Celine purse, all finished off with some bright yellow flats which were customised with her initials.

I actually love the fact that Olivia has gone for a more casual approach below the waist with the Black Orchid distressed skinny jeans and the yellow flats, but up the top it’s much more classic and smart, blending the two styles together harmoniously. Usually I don’t like black and white paired with such a light blue, but somehow Olivia has got this right and the pop of yellow just brings it all together nicely. What do you think of the way Olivia Palermo styled her Black Orchid Jude Skinny Jeans? Buy Black Orchid Denim online here and Tibi at Shopbop.com.

Alexa Chung Wears Vintage Levi’s Denim Shorts

alexa-chung-vintage-levis-denim-shorts

British fashion model and vintage style icon, Alexa Chung, made her way around New York City a few days ago before stopping to get some iced coffee on her stroll. This is the first time we have featured Alexa on The Jeans Blog, but I’m not surprised by what denim brand we caught her in as she wears it almost religiously.

Alexa opted for her vintage Levi’s denim cut off shorts, which she styled with a printed blouse and some white high tops with socks. I love the little finishing touch of the wicker basket bag, how cute is that? I’ve always found Alexa’s style to be very vintage and retro inspired, so I’m not shocked by the choice of visible socks with her sneakers. I think it’s quirky and really shows off her personality well. If it was me, I would have probably gone with sandals, but I have a much less inventive style than she does.

How many of you denim lovers are still loving your vintage Levi’s denim shorts? They are still one of the most popular brands that I see out and about on the streets as well as on celebrities and fashion bloggers, so I think they are here to stay for a good few seasons more as long as a new trend doesn’t creep up. Do you prefer the lighter or darker washes on your denim shorts though? And what do you think of Alexa Chung‘s pair? Buy Levi’s online at Shopbop.com and vintage Levi’s at Urban Outfitters.

PAIGE x Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Fall 2016 Campaign

Paige-Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley-Fall-16-Insta-Images4

I am very excited to announce the brand new PAIGE Fall 2016 Ad Campaign starring British model and face of the brand, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. These photos are hot off the press and have just been unveiled by Paige Adams-Geller and Rosie themselves.

PAIGE has gone for a different approach this time. We are used to seeing the gorgeous Los Angeles desert locations, but Fall 2016 was shot at the iconic Troubadour nightclub in West Hollywood, featuring Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gracing the same stage as Fleetwood Mac, The Doors and Elton John. Isn’t this an amazing and edgy location to shoot these photos?

For the Fall 2016 PAIGE shoot, the inspiration was drawn from the set location. Paige herself was inspired by the Troubadour’s nightclub scene of the 60’s and wanted to show Rosie as the ‘girl with the band.’ Both ladies enjoyed collaborating on the styling and hair and make-up for the shoot, using Ziggy Stardust, metallics, platforms and loads of jewelry for their looks.

“Shooting at the Troubadour was the perfect backdrop for the Fall 2016 collection which was inspired by the glam rock and rock and roll era. The set of such an iconic Hollywood musical venue brought the images and campaign to life. Looking forward to sharing the new looks with everyone!” said Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

“The Troubadour is very quintessential LA and since my collections always have a rock-n-roll vibe, it was clear we had to shoot there for the Fall 2016 ad campaign. I’m very grateful we were able to shoot at the Troub and show off the collection the way it was designed. Rosie and I were both very much in our elements there too – our names on the marquee, lights on the stage, a band set-up, a wind machine, and maybe some singing in between.” added Paige Adams-Geller.

The designer and supermodel turned to Rosie’s stylist, Cher Coulter, to help curate the looks and showcase the new silk tops and stretch leather pants, which you can see in some of the photos. The looks ranged from a lace-up bodysuit to silk buttoned up blouses, and stretch leather pants to high-rise cropped flares in vintage black, giving a whole new look to the classic PAIGE collections. Their usual photographer, Naj Jamai, was on hand to capture Rosie’s natural sense of style and the essence of the PAIGE brand, while the rest of the creative team was rounded out with hairstylist Christian Wood and make-up artist Kate Lee. What do you think of these 5 PAIGE Ad Campaign photos? You can shop PAIGE online at Shopbop.com.

Zoe Saldana Wears 7 For All Mankind b(air) Denim

zoe-saldana-7-for-all-mankind-bair-denim-jeans

Actress Zoe Saldana smiled and posed for photos while leaving The View after talking about the upcoming ‘Star Trek Beyond’ movie in New York City a couple of weeks ago. Zoe plays Lieutenant Uhura in the movie alongside Chris Pine, so I’m sure it’s great. Have any of you seen it yet?

For her outfit, Zoe chose to wear the new 7 For All Mankind b(air) Denim Skinny Jeans with a pretty dotted pyjama style blouse and some mustard yellow heels. I actually think this outfit is really classic and suits her perfectly. The skinny jeans are incredibly flattering and she couldn’t have gotten a better fit with them, but the pairing with the shirt and the yellow shoes is ideal. I think the mustard tones play off nicely against the stitching on the jeans.

Have any of you tried out the 7 For All mankind b(air) Denim yet? We spotted Gigi Hadid rocking a pair of their black skinny jeans in the new fabric, so I wonder who might be next? It’s a denim that’s as light as air so you don’t feel like you’re wearing any, but it’s extremely stretchy and holds its shape too. Is sounds almost too good to be true doesn’t it? I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair! Do you think Zoe Saldana styled them well? Buy 7 For All Mankind online at Shopbop.com.

Kendall Jenner Wears RE/DONE Levi’s Denim Shorts

kendall-jenner-vintage-levis-denim-shorts

Model and reality TV star (also The Jeans Blog regular!), Kendall Jenner, was pictured while making her way to the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City a little while ago. I’m amazed by just how much Kendall loves her denim, especially vintage pairs. She chooses to wear her jeans to everything and that includes casual and more classy events. This just makes us love her even more!

For her Whitney Museum of American Art visit, Kendall styled her RE/DONE Levi’s Denim Shorts with a cropped white t-shirt and layered a gorgeous suede, fringed jacket over the top. When I saw these photos, I thought as I scrolled down that there was sure to be some brown boots to tie in with the jacket, but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw some sapphire blue velvet boots on her feet. It’s quirky, unique and a combination that we rarely see, but it works.

There’s a lot of colours going on in this outfit and the mixtures of casual and smart pieces is perfect. The RE/DONE Levi’s Denim Shorts and the cropped tee keep things low key, but the fringed jacket, velvet boots and black clutch just take it up a notch and make it look styled. Kendall really knows how to dress her denim and that’s something we will never get tired of! How many of you would style your denim shorts this way? You can buy similar denim shorts and fringed jackets online at Shopbop.com.

Tom Hiddleston Wears J Brand Tyler Slim Fit Jeans

tom-hiddleston-j-brand-jeans

Actor Tom Hiddleston landed at LAX International Airport in Los Angeles, California a few days ago to meet up with new girlfriend, Taylor Swift, after the VMA nominations. Since the couple came out about dating, we have been seeing so much of Tom, which I’m happy about as it’s always nice to see a fresh face in the public eye to mix it up. Even though he’s played some amazing roles, he managed to keep his life private before.

For his flight, Tom wore a pair of the J Brand Tyler Slim Fit Jeans in Tavern with a white t-shirt and a blue bomber jacket layered over the top. Tom has worn these J Brand jeans numerous times before as they seem to be his favourite pair, but I think he styled the black wash well with the bomber jacket here.

These jeans look like they are a very dark blue/washed black with midnight undertones. It’s hard to distinguish between the navy and black as the colour is very close to both of them, but I think that makes them very versatile. If you want to know how to wear double denim and get it right, these J Brand Tyler jeans in Tavern would make a great base for a light blue denim shirt. What do you think of this look? Do you think Tom Hiddleston styled his J Brand jeans right? Buy J Brand for men online at East Dane.
