With an array of stripes and bold prints on ’60s-inspired dresses and skirts, the youthful Miss Wu by Jason Wu borrows from the past. Available at Nordstrom—which opens at Yorkdale Mall in 2016—Miss Wu has been updated with splashes of colour to appeal to younger women. A definite contrast to Wu’s collection for fall, which had a palette of black-on-black-on-black with the occasional grey and tan accent, the Miss Wu collection is the ideal balance of professional meets flirty with lots of bright patterns and textures. Wu updates classic staples such as the LBD, the pleated skirt and the tunic dress and the otherwise bright ensembles are toned down with a few black and white ginko leaf prints and leather pieces. Check out our favourite Jason Wu classics and their youthful and retro Miss Wu counterparts.
