LBD with a twist

Jason Wu's new contemporary line, Miss Wu, is finally on Nordstrom.com and available for purchase, ladies!

To celebrate, I caught up with the designer himself to chat about the collection and left with a few style tips I had to share.

Choose an LBD with a twist:
"It's the quintessential little black dress every girl needs to have in their closet," says Wu, "but it has a draping detail in the front and it’s a cotton material, so it’s not too warm and isn't overly dressy."

Plus, the hint of lace separates it from the usual LBD lot.

Silk & Cotton Faille Dress with Embroidered Lace Yoke, $495.

"Marianne Faithfull was a huge inspiration while creating this collection," says Wu.

"One of the key pieces of the collection is a cashmere sweater with lace detail, which is very quintessentially Jason Wu. That idea translated nicely to Miss Wu when paired with this little A-line skirt," which Wu says "is the perfect length that looks good on just about any body type."

Suggests the designer, "this is a really good 'walking around in the city' outfit. It’s good for lunch. It can take you from the morning to the early evening. It’s great for an early dinner kind of a thing."

Cashmere Sweater with Embroidered Lace Yoke, $325. Textured Jacquard Skirt, $265.

Add amped up staples to your wardrobe

Add amped up staples to your wardrobe:
"In this case, [the top] is a dressier take on the sweater. This one is more of a pullover. The color really brightens up any outfit and can be worn with a pair of jeans or with a mixed print like this," advises Wu.

Miss Wu 'Sofie' Stripe Cashmere Sweater, $295. Miss Wu Print Chiffon Skirt , $275.













Rethink what you consider "ladylike"

Rethink what you consider "ladylike":
"While the silhouette of the skirt still gives this girl a lot of femininity, the leather material also gives her a little edge," says Wu.

"I felt like the contemporary market was mostly black and white and much edgier clothes, and I felt like Miss Wu had a
place there and could bring somewhat of a more girlier and feminine aspect. I thought it was a nice addition to what is in the market right now,"says the designer.

"This is an everyday work outfit or with gold accessories, fancy shoes and a clutch she can do casual cocktails or a gallery opening."

Never settle for average outerwear

Never settle for average outerwear:
As you can see, this trench coat is anything but basic.

"This is something, that girls are going to want to live in and go back to all the time, year after year," says Wu.

"It’s a little fancier than your run-of-the-mill trench. I imagine this to be the coat that whenever it starts getting cold, she looks forward to getting out of the back of the closet and she wants to wear all the time and it always looks good."

Miss Wu Belted Cotton Trench Coat, $$595.

    • Hmm, maybe this is why Trump doesn't want to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner

      On Saturday, Donald Trump made history as only the third president to bow out of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. And while this has much to do with Trump's ever-worsening battle with the press and his constant struggle to book talent, it's also worth remembering that, to be frank, Trump probably has another reason for ditching: He usually gets clobbered at these things. So, in the interest of, uh, elucidation, please enjoy these videos of Trump getting roasted at the 2011 and 2016 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Better yet, enjoy Trump's mirthless reactions. They're uncomfortable to watch, but extremely worth it. SEE ALSO: An exclusive look at Donald Trump's Twitter drafts for Oscar night First, here's President Obama clapping back at Trump's relentless "birther" conspiracy-mongering. The Lion King is involved. Next, observe Seth Meyers insisting that Trump must be running for president as a "joke." Trump does not smile. And here's Obama ripping on The Apprentice.  Finally, here's a delightful compilation of all the best Trump burns from the 2016 dinner.  A Larry Wilmore highlight: "Yeah, Trump's campaign is inspiring ... mass violence." (Trump did not attend that one, BTW.) So, there you have it. While we're not sure about the future of this year's event, we'll always have those stunners to fall back on.  And you can always zoom in on this cursed image while listening to "Sound of Silence."

The New York Post reports that Hightower has frustrated business associates — as well as the legendary actor — by dithering over simple decisions, and “changing her mind about how to run the business depending on who she spoke to last.” A source tells the paper that, in a moment of frustration, De Niro boiled over while bickering with Hightower in public at a Manhattan bar, telling her, “I wouldn’t have to keep making s - - tty movies if you didn’t spend
