jax likes...look of the moment, february 24, 2010


i had just been thinking of how i hadn't updated my "look of the moment" in quite a while, but i wanted an outfit to jump out at me instead of just arbitrarily choosing a new one.  that was when i came across the pringle of scotland fall 2010 RTW collection (expect my review of the entire show later on in the day).  this look is a beautiful representation of the collection: simple and organic, with a seventies silhouette which still retains a contemporary quality.  the pants have been cause for some debate between reviewers, but i am absolutely head-over-heels in love with them.  i've been coveting a well-tailored pair of trousers but cannot wear a skinny shape; it's like these are the pants of my dreams.  they're a little bit bohemian and look perfect with a tighter fitting top as worn here.  plus, the pockets are so big, you wouldn't even need to carry a purse!  as for the top, apparently it was made by weaving cashmere with a soluble yarn which dissolved when washed, leaving behind impeccable tiny cashmere squares (sure to be super comfy).  the army green on mustard works beautifully with the oatmeal colored bottoms, and gave the overall look an almost nostalgic quality.  and while i am totally, 100% anti-fur, i can really appreciate the fur gloves shown here from an aesthetic perspective; they add a little pluck to the outfit and are on par with fall's huge fur trend without being overbearing.  the bronze-y smokey eye, burgundy pout, and rosy cheeks play off the look and are simple without being too minimal.  and finally, to top it all off, this look is worn by hanne gaby odiele, who is one of my favorite models right now.  complete perfection.
