Who Should Rock It: Jason Wu

SS17 JASON WU In the immortal words of The Bangles, it's just another manic Monday.  I've lived three lives since 6am and have little energy remaining for the rest of the 96 things on today's To Do list.  All of this running around and catching up has got me craving a few things:

  1. Coffee (which may or may not include a healthy shot of Kahlua)
  2. A closet stuffed with all of the pieces I've fallen in love with from NY Fashion Week (yes, I am STILL reviewing the shows I missed)
  3. A break

Naturally I'll begin with number three because it's common knowledge that procrastination solves everything!  Let's play Who Should Rock It sampling from the Jason Wu Spring 2017 Ready to Wear collection.  First up is the above.  It's my A1 favorite from this collection.  This mix of colors is astounding!  I nominate Cate Blanchett to wear this because it is fun and colorful and modern - as is her style.

 

SS17 JASON WUThis look requires long legs and great shoulders.  A sinewy beauty like Amal Clooney would stun in this.  I can see her carrying a tote and a cardi and sashaying into the office.

 

SS17 JASON WUI could see Diane Kruger in this one.  Probably because I already saw Diane Kruger in this one:

Saks Fifth Avenue + Vanity Fair: 2016 International Best Dressed List CelebrationSide note: you only throw your hip out like that if something isn't quite snug enough in the torso.  I want to correct that fit issue and also shorten this a tad.  Oh - and style it with the bright orange and white two-piece sandals Wu had in his show.
