There’s been a lot of hype about the Hudson Lou Lou Tuxedo Crop Skinny due to the launch party Hudson through during NYFW, ( I blogged about it earlier this month, so click here to get the full story & video).
I like to mix it up so this week I visited one of London’s Premium Denim Specialist Trilogy in Hampstead, who had just received their delivery of the Ziggy (dark navy) with neon orange stripe on the outside leg.
A size 25 was given to me and a selection of tops to go with the Lou Lou’s by the lovely Leigh, the Manager. Now i’m quite familiar with Hudson as I have a more than a couple of pairs in my collection so going down a couple of sizes is a given.
The Fit: The Lou Lou is a cropped super skinny with a 5 pocket classic style. The colour combination works really well as the neon orange stripe really jumps out giving this skinny a sporty feel which is one of my favourite spring trends. The clever styling on the Lou Lou is the silky stripe on the outside of the leg making the eye follow the stripe down to the ankle, giving the illusion of a longer leg. The other part is the colour blocking, breaking up the leg with a different colour slims down the leg.
The Rise: Low rise 7 inches. I wasn’t expecting the rise to feel so low and felt rather exposed around the tummy. Please note I was trying a size 25 so the rise may vary as the sizing goes up. For my apple body shape the Lou Lou is a no no.
The Back Rise: 12 inches, which gives more coverage than the front rise.
The Behind: Plain back pockets with the Hudson label on the right pocket, as this colourway is such a dark navy the pockets tend to blend into the background.
Leg Opening: 10 inches a super skinny.
Leg length: Cropped at 27 inches, which works for both heels and flats.
The Fabric: Fabric Weight: 8.11 oz, Fabrication: 98% cotton, 2% elastane, Made in the USA of imported European fabric. There is a stretch to this jean which gives a comfortable holding feeling on the leg and bottom. The fabric has a lovely soft feel. The Lou Lou is available in 3 colour ways, dark navy/ ziggi with an orange stripe, burgundy/manson with a pink stripe, olive/chopin with a neon yellow stripe.
Function: The Lou Lou is another statement jean which really comes alive and is perfect for this seasons sportswear trend. It works for both day or evening, team with a silk blouse, crop jacket and heels for evening. I’m loving these heeled trainers for day.
Which Body Shape: This style is great for Long & Leggy and Petite. Curvy body shapes may need a higher rise as will my fellow apples! See know your denim for more infomation.
The Round Up Of The Hudson Lou Lou Tuxedo Skinny:
If you haven’t already guessed i’m disappointed as I love the style of the Lou Lou and the idea of this tuxedo style jean with the neon twist. My disappointment is with just how low the front rise is, which takes me out of my comfort zone. Just another inch and I would of been breaking my spending ban.
The price £230 is a higher price for a Hudson Jean as other styles start at £185+. Hudson, if your reading this review please go a bit higher on the rise next time!
The Tried & Tested Score: 7/10
