A fashionable addition to the world of denim, the Denim Legging (or “Jegging,” if you want to give them a ridiculous name) is something that nobody is really on the fence about; you either love them or you hate them. Unless, of course, you see the differences. To me, there are two types of Denim Leggings: the pair of jeans made in a legging-style cut, and the pair of leggings made to look like denim (think: that Niki Biki pair of hideousness that Paris Hilton decided to climb into and cover the world with disgust)… and the former really, REALLY works for me.
I received an email from Hudson Jeans about their latest pair of jeans, their “Jegging” (photo above), and I got excited to do a quick review on them. These look like the kind of denim legging up there with Current/Elliott’s “The Legging”; easy to wear, great look, fun to style and, best of all, made of DENIM, the way it should be. Here’s what they had to say:
How do you style this jean + legging hybrid? According to Ben Taverniti, head denim designer for Hudson Jeans, “The jegging is a fashion essential this season because it provides the comfort of the legging and chic design of the jean. It’s something that is very easy to wear and goes with anything in your cloest. To dress up your new jeggings, wear them with Christian Louboutins or dress them down with a beat up pair of Converse tennis shoes. You can wear them with a tank top or a more dressy top, a canvas bag or a Balenciaga. The jegging gives your look an edge, no matter how you style them.”In case you’re not familiar with Hudson, the collection was founded in Los Angeles in 2002 and are best known for unparalleled fit and craftsmanship, the iconic union jack logo and signature triangle flap back pocket. Created from the best premium denim from the finest mills in Europe and Japan, all Hudson products are hand finished and tailored to be truly one-of-a-kind pieces. The line marries California Freedom with British Cool and recently launched a hot new ad campaign featuring Georgia May Jagger, the 17 year old daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall. Celeb fans include Kate Hudson, Gisele Bundchen and Sandra Bullock.Hudson “jeggings” retail for $154.00 and are available in sizes 24-32.
So, what do you think? Would you try this look?
I think that Taverniti has the styling right – they are super versatile – and I know I’m very excited to snag a pair of these Hudsons. You’ll probably end up seeing them all over this website in outfits (and, of course, a full-on Denim Legging review!).
