This weeks review is on a brand that I haven’t really tried that much in the past, Hudson. I’m reviewing their Blue Hampton Cuffed short shorts. They sent these to me in the mail last week and I was excited to be reviewing a pair of shorts as I usually do jeans. Doing denim reviews has actually become one of my favourite things to do. After being obsessed with jeans for over 6 years now and being able to try out a huge selection of brands and fits, I’ve really gotten to know what works for myself and what doesn’t, so I’m glad my reviews can help all of you out there who love denim like I do.
I wanted to start out with the colour, it’s a cross between turquoise and aqua and I love it. I’ve always been a huge fan of bright colours, especially coloured denim so I do like this wash a lot. It’s fun to pair brights with more subtle and neutral tones so the colours become the focal point. Blue is a pretty easy colour to match things with as well.
The fit of these shorts is different to what I am used to as well, they have a medium rise which feels like it’s a little on the higher side, I do prefer them lower but since I wear longer tops it’s not noticeable. The inseam is of a good length, even though they are short shorts they are not too short. I like the way the hems are cuffed and I’m always a fan of the pocket bags slightly showing through, it gives them a more casual appearance. Since this is pretty much my first time trying Hudson, I never had any expectations to begin with actually, so I can’t state whether or not the imagination lived up to the reality. I do find the pockets do make my butt look a little flat, however I am unsure if that’s because they are shorts, I know shorts can sometimes do that to my behind, depending on the cut and brand.
I do like the little details on the jeans too, like how they have the British flag on the back pocket. Being British myself, it’s strange actually seeing our flag on something, especially denim, it’s a nice touch though. I know Hudson’s signature is the deeply pointed flap pocket and I have always thought it looked good on the jeans. My opinion of that hasn’t changed either.
Overall, the one thing that sways me towards these shorts is definitely the wash, I love the bright blue and it’s what makes these shorts wearable and fun in my opinion! Buy these shorts at Revolve for $143.
Georgia May Jagger is heading to New York City to shoot and promote Hudson jeans Fall 2011 ad campaign. Not only will she be starring in the campaign, she’ll be taking fans behind the scenes of the shoot with short film clips and tweets. Her videos will be posted using Instagram to Hudson’s Viddy channel as well as on Hudson’s twitter (@HudsonJeans) and Georgia’s (@GeorgiaMJagger).
Pippa Middleton is really becoming quite popular now! The paps seem to be loving her and are following her around everywhere she goes! This time she was caught running some errands in London in her usual attire of jeans and a bright top.
This time Pippa chose a pair of Hudson skinny jeans with black boots, a fuchsia top and a blazer. It looks like she’s also learned to use sunglasses to shield her eyes from the pap cameras. It hasn’t really been that sunny over here to need sunglasses properly. Buy Hudson jeans at Revolve Clothing.

No this is not déjà vu. Nicole Richie just loves pairing her Hudson denim jacket with her workout gear that much. She was once again spotted leaving the gym after having another workout session with her trainer Tracey Anderson. She wore the look that started the trend of pairing your workout gear with a killer jacket.
I don’t blame Nicole for wearing this jacket over and over. The wash is amazing and I love that it is dark too. We usually see medium to light tones on everyone, but this is a nice change. I realized Nicole hasn’t rocked double denim yet. I wonder if we will see her wearing it anytime soon.
