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."

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.

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.

According to the piece, released Tuesday morning, Riley’s five-year contract, signed last year, came “with the understanding that he can work anywhere, including his perch overlooking the Pacific.” Riley owns three homes, all in a row, in Malibu. Author Wright Thompson said “Riley’s friends have been wondering for years when he'd head west, all of them following the internal conflict they've come to know as Miami vs. Malibu.” One of those friends, actor Michael Douglas, is quoted as saying:

    • Lamentations of a Mercedes-Benz SL Man

      Is anyone paying attention to the sad fate befalling the Mercedes-Benz SL? Its sales have shriveled alarmingly, and its body has been contorted into some sad parody of a rich guy’s ride, a neo–Zimmer Golden Spirit for those who can’t stretch for a Bentley. This used to be the ultimate sporting gent’s car and the white-hot core of its storied brand. Symbolically speaking, the SL was as important to ­Mercedes-Benz as the 911 still is to Porsche, as the Wrangler is to Jeep. Throughout its six-decade-plus history, it had no peer. No other car could dispatch long distances and long sweeping curves with equal grace; sidelong competition from BMWs as varied as the 507 and the 6-series convertible couldn’t
