Winnie, I’m in dire need of Jason Wu’s Miss Wu Pleated Skirt ($195) — I mean, I’m hopelessly in love!
I tried to forget about the Miss Wu skirt after seeing a lookbook picture on Style Amor, but I’ve been obsessing over it since last Tuesday. A week may not have gone by yet, but when you know, you know — finding the perfect piece of clothing is like finding “The One!”
I may not be the typical Jason Wu girl (i.e. uptown, posh, cardigan-lover), but when a designer can get away with dressing hip celebrities as well as First Lady Michelle Obama, then I say he/she has definite cross-over appeal — I’d just have to style the skirt differently than on Nordstrom.com.
First, I’d add a higher pair of heels.
My legs are short, and any shoe with a heel less than 3 1/2″ high feels short to me. It’s really strange because I actually can feel a difference. It’s like walking on the moon!
Next, I’d rip off that overly prim black blouse.
I may have new-found affections for blouses, but I need a top that is a little more relaxed. When a collar rides too high on my neck I feel claustrophobic, the world starts spinning, and I forget to breathe. No one wants me to sue for some random hysteria-induced accident, so a simple tee will suffice (try the Madewell Silk Front Tee in Colorpoint, $68)
Finally, I’d throw on some gold jewelry.
How would you style the Miss Wu Pleated Skirt, and what’s your favorite piece in the Miss Wu by Jason Wu collection?
