Tie-Back Double-V Sweater & Hudson Jeans

Greetings! I hope your week is going well. Today I’m styling off-black skinny jeans from Hudson Jeans with a fun teal tie-back double-V sweater and leopard flats.

I wore basically this same outfit to church last Sunday, but I wore my black suede mules instead of the ballet flats, and I swapped out the choker for my monogram necklace.

I like both versions but I think this one is my favorite. It’s nice because it’s comfortable enough to wear for everyday but the sweater has some fun details that level up the casual look.

Hudson Jeans sent me these black skinnies to try out and share with you. They’re the Nico ankle super skinny jeans, and they fit like a second skin. I wore them all day Saturday, and they didn’t bag out, although they do soften up and mold to your body as you wear them through the day. For size reference, these are the 28, the same size I wear in most other premium denim brands.

There isn’t a huge difference between legging jeans and super skinny jeans, but you can see that these are snug without being skin-tight. They have a 9″ rise and a 28″ inseam with a 10″ leg opening, and I like that they’re made of 98% cotton. They’re super soft and comfortable to wear all day.

This wash isn’t a jet black; it’s more of a faded black with a casual vibe to it, but you can definitely dress it up or down.

On top, I wore this tie back double v sweater I picked up at Loft a few weeks ago. I love this teal color for fall. It looks nice with black and grey particularly, but you can also wear it with a dark wash denim or a lighter wash. I just stay away from the mid-wash denim so there is some contrast between the two shades of blue.

I also think this sweater would be gorgeous with white jeans. I would just wear boots or booties to make sure it looks intentionally like fall.

The tie back detail is really fun, and I like that it shows some skin without sacrificing modesty, and you don’t have to worry about it being so low that it may show your bra strap.

As far as silhouettes go, this probably isn’t my best look. The sweater doesn’t have a lot of shape to it, but it’s nice for those days when you want to wear something cute that isn’t clingy.

I felt like the outfit was rather plain on its own so I jazzed it up with leopard flats. These sold out, but I also love my Felicia flats in leopard. In fact, I almost wore those for this shoot. I could go either way with this outfit.

For jewelry, I thought this choker necklace with the tiger’s eye stone on a black cord worked well with the leopard flats.

I added gold earrings and a stack of gold bangles to complete the look.
