Quirky masculine chic seemed to be the look Jason Wu was trying to create with his latest Fall/Winter collection.
Best known for dressing the First Lady, Michelle Obama, Wu has become a household name in fashion for his colorful and feminine silhouettes for die-hard dress fans.
But with his fall collection, it looks like he wants to expand his horizons to include the “every girl”, specifically the girl who likes a little boyishness with her girly, because not everybody is Michelle Obama.
Wu got more creative this time around without dismissing his superb tailoring and fun-filled color palette that were his claim to fame.
There was a polka dotted sheer blouse, a feathered mini skirt, and cocktail dresses galore, but we are more interested in the more masculine resonances that he pulled from out of his sleeve.
Oversized coats, cropped tuxedo jackets, slouchy trousers, and woolly grandpa sweaters reestablished the timeless boy-meets-girl connotation to the max.
With electrifying blasts of color like mellow yellow and neon orange, the way he styled his menswear pieces was exciting and modern, balancing his more feminine essentials like skirts, flimsy blouses, and strappy heels. Add a sparkling foil bib necklace for balance, and you’re good to go…the Jason Wu way!
