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: Pastel Shell

When we think of fall transition, we typically shift to richer, deeper colors. While that’s true, we can’t help but be gravitated towards the refreshing trend of fall outerwear done in soft, dusty pastel hues. It just lightens up our standard fall palette so nicely and with minimal effort.

There’s just something a bit unexpected yet approachable about throwing on a pale coat over your fall outfits. Today’s street style inspiration does just that with a subdued blush-colored trench over her dark outfit.

Check out our version of this fresh take on early fall outerwear:

4 Denim Brands You Need to Know in 2014

With the start of every new year comes a certain longing for renewal, and sometimes this manifests itself to a return to basics—a simple decluttering of the closet perhaps, or investing in wardrobe pieces that serve a multitude of options. Jeans definitely fit into this “indispensable staples” category, and are truly worth spending a little more time and money on to get that perfect fit for your body.

Today, we’re highlighting four of our denim superstars that we think you (and your wardrobe) should get acquainted with this year:

Fresh Picks: Back-to-Basics Denim

One of the most essential foundations to any wardrobe is great-fitting basic jeans. These versatile closet superstars can be worn in tons of different outfits—from the most casual days with a white tee, to nights out with a sexy sheer blouse. The possibilities are endless!

Below are three of our must-have fits for every body type, along with the easiest-to-wear washes: standard blues (darker washes for dressier looks, lighter washes for daytime looks) and of course, basic black.

Bootcut:

You can wear bootcut jeans with all sorts of shoes- from high heels to flip flops- depending on the length of the inseam. If your legs are on the shorter side, be wary of flares that are too wide, as they can make your legs look shorter. Opt for a slight flair below the knee and a close fit at the thighs.

Straight leg:

These are a great halfway point between bootcuts and skinny jeans. Straight leg jeans lengthen the look of the leg, especially when worn with heels! We also love these with ballet flats. Just make sure the length of the inseam is to where it doesn’t gather at the bottom—this can make the jeans look sloppy.

Skinny:

Contrary to popular belief, almost any body type can wear skinny jeans. Just pay attention to the fit, particularly the level of stretch. Picking a darker wash can also give the illusion of a slimmer leg. If you’re on the petite side, pick a skinny jean with a mid to high rise to lengthen the look of your legs.

Inseam is also super important when picking skinny jeans. You want the hem to hit at or slightly above the ankle—unless you are doing a cropped skinny, in which case, you can go a little bit higher.

Fresh Picks: Spring Colored Denim

Signs of spring are all around us, not the least of which is color---lots of color. This welcome shift from neutrals to a more colorful palette is best explored in the wonderful world of denim. (Don’t worry neutrals, we still love you!)

Below is just a sampling of our latest colored denim to hit Zappos. We love them paired with neutral tops for a more subdued look or for some colorblocking action, try pairing them with a coordinating pop color up top!
