The New Story of Hudson Jeans

As one of the founding brands of the premium denim market, Hudson is a company built on the simple yet profound goal to transcend product and inspire people everywhere to live their true passion.

Fast-forward about 12 years later, Hudson has experienced an awakening of sorts. The premium denim landscape that it has helped pioneer, has changed. The competition noise has become deafening, and Hudson was certainly not immune to allowing themselves to follow the conventions of the fashion industry over the years.

It is with this realization that Hudson founder Peter Kim, along with his team, set out to redefine the brand—to reject the unrealistic fashion stereotypes and expectations.

Hudson invites you to embrace individuality, to take their denim and feel free to expresses yourself in your truest form. As they say, "Start here and build something good." And judging from their amazing collection of premium denim, it's a pretty great place to start.

Inspired By: Denim on Denim

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.

Today’s street style inspiration is all about denim---and lots of it! The territory of double denim has really come a long way from an unfortunate fashion faux pas only charted by the very brave (or style deficient) to becoming an easy go-to for the stylish set. 

When it comes to our beloved denim: the more the merrier!

Check out our take on this denim-on-denim look:

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.

Today’s inspiration is all about adding a dose of glam to a laidback weekend attire. An easy-to-wear faux fur vest instantly adds coziness and interest to our favorite go-to formula for kicking back: a sweatshirt + skinny jeans + Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers.  The addition of a structured satchel lends a more grown-up vibe to this super comfy outfit.

Top 5 Timeless Fall Essentials

fall essentials,dknyc,michael michael kors,via spiga,ALDO, Yarnz,Fossil,Cole Haan,Paige Denim,Hudson,fall styles,fall staple pieces,fall investment pieces,

I’m a firm believer that a good fall wardrobe needs a solid foundation. These timeless pieces become the building blocks for the rest of your outfits season after season.  Having go-to staples that defy fads and trends is the key to having a truly versatile wardrobe.

Here are my top 5 fall essentials that are worthy of investing in:

CLASSIC COATS:

You can’t go wrong with a classic belted trench coat and a tailored peacoat. They’re both timeless and instantly pull together your entire look.

Left: MICHAEL Michael Kors Double-breasted Trench Coat

Right: DKNYC Double Breasted Peacoat

BLACK ANKLE BOOTS:

The equivalent to a little black dress in the footwear department, black ankle boots are a must-have for every woman.

Left: Via Spiga Sheri

Right: ALDO Elks

COZY SCARVES:

Scarves are a great way to add color, pattern and/or texture to any outfit. I like to stock up in them to change up outfits throughout the season.

Left: Yarnz Playhouse Scarf

Right: Fossil Annabelle Solid Infinity Scarf

STRUCTURED HANDBAGS:

A structured bag adds a classic, ladylike feel to even casual ensembles!

Left: Cole Haan Ludlow St. Addison Satchel

Right: MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton Large North/South Tote

DARK WASH JEANS:

Jeans are an obvious staple all year round, but when done in a clean dark wash, it gives any outfit a more polished, pulled-together appearance. Invest in great-fitting dark wash jeans in a variety of cuts like bootcut, skinny and flare.
