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.

    • Ivanka Trump Wore a $325 Coat From Her Own Company to Visit the Supreme Court (11 photos)

      Ivanka Trump might have stepped down from her fashion label, but that doesn’t mean her style game has suffered. Now that the 35-year-old daughter of President Donald Trump  has relocated to Washington, D.C., she’s often spotted in on-trend looks in her daily appearances from the White House to the Capitol Building (and the Trump Hotel too). From everyday work looks to extravagant gowns for upscale events, the first daughter’s outfits are generally always sophisticated and refined. Recently, the mother-of-three shared an image alongside Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and her father wearing a sleek black dress — an sleek option she often sticks with. On the same day, the three participated in a discussion on women in business, a platform the 35-year-old mother is passionate about, and helped to launch The Canada-United States Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders. Check out some of her most recent looks.

    • Mark Consuelos clarifies wife Kelly Ripa's comments about their sex life

      Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa want to set the record straight on what really happens between the sheets. Less than two weeks after Ripa claimed her husband is “mean” after sex, she revisited the topic on Wednesday during “Live with Kelly.” “I’m sorry, I was joking, this is a funny, irreverent show, I didn’t realize it would become trending news,” said the 46-year-old host. Ripa first made the shocking claim during a Feb. 9 taping, which was co-hosted with Consuelos. “He’s immediately mean to me afterwards and I don’t like that,” said Ripa at the time while sitting next to her husband. “I think it’s bizarre. He becomes short with me, like irritated.” “I’m like, ‘Oh, now you’re irritated?’” added

    • California's punishing rain creates rare spectacle

      First the rain, now the drain. California’s punishing rain this month has flooded neighborhoods and triggered evacuations. It has also pushed Lake Berryessa in Napa County way beyond capacity, pouring water into its bathtub-like drain. It’s the first time that’s happened in 11 years, reports CBS News correspondent Mireya Villarreal. “Back in October, we were essentially half-full,” said Roland Sanford, general manager of the Solano County Water Agency. “This is the first time that the lake has been so low, and filled-up and spilled in one year.” What looks calm at the top of the “Morning Glory Spillway” looks like a raging torrent at the bottom. The spillway is located 200 feet from the Monticello

The shirt in question bore the image of a baseball bat and the message “Eeny Meeny Miny Moe” — a reference to a scene from the AMC zombie drama in which Negan (Morgan) is deciding who in the protagonist group to kill. The historical use caused shopper Ian Lucraft to complain after spotting the shirt at a branch of the U.K.’s Primark retail chain.
