Denim Review: Hudson Nico Skinny Jeans in Chelsea

This weeks review is on a brand new cut from Hudson, the Nico skinny in Chelsea which I got sent to try by the brand. The Nico is Hudson’s newest jean and it’s their skinniest 5 pocket yet. It was inspired by Nico, the famed singer and Warhol muse and has a 60’s chic style.

The fit of these jeans is absolutely perfect! I wasn’t expecting them to be so comfortable either. Usually I find normal jeans to be a bit stiff when worn so tight but these feel so soft, just like jeggings. I could happily wear these all day and be comfortable. The Nico has a 10″ leg opening and a 30″ inseam so they are super skinny and perfect for hitting at the ankle or bunching just a little bit like they do on me. They also have a higher rise of 9″ which is something I am not used to and don’t usually find very flattering on me but these some how work. I think because they kept the pocket placement normal and didn’t make them higher like they are on most higher rise jeans, they are still flattering. Plus the rise gives you a better silhouette as you don’t get muffin top with it or builders butt! I took a 27 in these which is my usual Hudson size and they fit perfectly.

They are made from refined tencel denim which gives the Nico a super soft feel, a radiant sheen, ultimate stretch comfort and a perfect fit. I completely agree with this! I usually get fed up of dark washes because they are all the same but these have a beautiful sheen to them and it brings the jeans to life, it makes them much more easy to wear and nicer to look at. I find shiny denim gives off a more classy feel as well. The Chelsea wash is a versatile deep and rich indigo which I have fallen in love with. I think it’s the perfect shade to go with anything and everything and for day or night wear. The jeans have the finest stitch detail too which makes them really sleek and fitted.

These don’t have Hudson’s classic pointed flap pocket either, these have just a plain pocket with a little imprint of a flap pocket on them. I find these to be much more flattering than their classic pockets, I’m not really a fan of flaps on my pockets so these are the perfect alternative to that. I think if I could only have one dark pair of jeans then it would be these or a pair with exactly the same wash. I think this is the type of wash that you would have most use for and find the easiest to match your clothes with. I decided to do a colour block outfit with 3 different colours to go with the jeans and it works. I definitely love these and I am glad I got to review them. The comfort combined with the super skinny fit and the dark blue sheen wash are all perfect combinations! Plus they have a slightly lower price point to most premium jeans! Buy these jeans online at Hudson for $154.

  1. I love the color on these! The look is totally sixties, I’ve been watching a lot of Mad Men lately and these fit into my skinny jeans and heels fantasies.
    Totally beatnik.
