I don't think I've worn this much color, ever. But to be honest, it was nice to breakaway from my usual black uniform. I wanted to try colored denim, but knew I needed a darker pair. I don't have the confidence to wear light colored denim with my muscular legs, so I decided to give these a go. I found these Hudson flares to be slimming and all around comfortable, plus right on target with my desire for trying something different. I plan to wear these into the Spring with some graphic tees and denim.
