Jennifer Hudson: I need high pants

Jennifer Hudson has spoken about how she is incorporating “New York-ness” into her wardrobe.

The 33-year-old singer-and-actress is known for her keen sense of style after slimming down from a more curvaceous size.

But in a new interview, Jennifer has revealed her trouser choice – admitting she’s not a fan of a low rise.

“I’m a high-waisted girl. I like my pants to come up high, and then still cover my leg,” she explained to the New York Daily News.

Jennifer has recently been named the star of New York & Company’s fresh Soho Jeans Collection campaign.

And promoting the brand altered her vision of denim forever.

“I was not originally a jeans girl, but when I stepped into these boyfriend jeans ... this is the pair of jeans I’ve always been looking for,” she noted, referring to a piece in the Soho Jeans Collection.

Being the face of New York & Company’s denim line is helping her embrace the Big Apple in surprising ways.

Jennifer is currently living there, as this fall she will make her Broadway debut in The Color Purple.

“It’s the perfect time, with me moving to New York for Broadway,” she said of embracing New York & Company style. “It helps me find my New York-ness.”

The Soho Jeans Collection is Seventies-inspired fashion that includes high-waist flare sailor jeans, high-waist jean leggings in addition to a boho fringed skirt.

The denim ranges from sizes 0-18 and will retail for less than $70 per piece.

Jennifer has previously praised the clothing for being both fashion-forward and comfortable at the same time.
