Originally, I figured Jason Wu for Target was going to be along the lines of Missoni Madness. So I figured I’d way up at 7 to hit Target by the time it opened. Of course, when 7 AM came, I decided to go back to sleep and check it out later. So when I went to Target around 12:30, I was pleasantly surprised to find stuff on the racks. There was enough size variety that I was able to try on just about everything.
Cut for a ridiculous amount of pictures, and you can see my review of individual pieces and the overall collection below…
Size Medium. Not really flattering on my hourglass figure. In addition to being very see-through. Also, if you view Target’s pictures — I am obviously too short for this since it is supposed to reach mid-thigh (maybe).
Size Medium. It seems like this was the one created with a nod to girls with boobs. I liked the belt included to give the dress some shape, and the dress itself wasn’t see-through which was a large point in its favor. However, the bust simply wasn’t flattering.
Size Medium. Fabric is awful, dress is nearly shapeless. The actual seam for the waist hits me in the wrong place. Not flattering on my body.
Size Medium. Fabric is more t-shirt like. Very soft and comfortable. Not a lot of shape to the dress itself. Unfortunately fabric will show almost anything you’re wearing underneath (you can likely see the outline of my bra).
Size Medium. Thin, See-thorough, drape-y fabric. Not particularly flattering.
Size Small. Very thin fabric. Color is very pretty, and it’s pretty cozy in person. Hits much too long on my 5’1″ frame.
Size Medium. I decided to show how it it looks paired with a skirt, along with the length outside of a skirt. This tee is pretty much the exact same the one in blush. I do find it more flattering when tucked into a skirt, however. Even still, it is completely see-through.
Size Medium. Again, blouse is see-through. The fabric is very thin. Also, the arm holes on this one were strangely tight. Altogether: unflattering.
Size Medium. Excuse the nude bra. I didn’t realize how see-through this entire collection was until I tried it on. Nearly every piece made my bra this visible. This one the fabric was not very pleasant, and I found it unflattering.
Size 8. This pleated skirt fit well and was flattering and it seemed of pretty good quality. It had a zipper and a side clasp. You can also see it with three different shirts above. The only reason I did not purchase it is because I own multiple black skirts. If this skirt had come in a blush pink then I would have purchased it on the spot.
Size Medium. Like the other pieces in the collection, this shirt was very thin and long. However the color helped so it wasn’t see-through. For me, it was nothing that I really needed. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. It was “meh” piece.
(However, I am in love with the miniskirt in this picture. I might have to go back and get it!)
Size Medium. I actually liked this top. It wasn’t see-through, and the pattern was quite pretty. Tucked into a skirt it was adorable! Outside of the skirt, however, the shape was very square.
Size 10. I’ll be honest, this was the piece I would have purchased from the collection if it had been in an 8. It’s pretty much the black pleated skirt with the clasp and quality, but in a nice pattern. The size 10 was just a bit big for me, and since I’ve been losing weight recently if I purchased it, it wouldn’t have fit after a couple weeks.
Jason Wu for Target, the Overall Collection:
I’ll admit I was disappointed. My Target didn’t carry the pieces I was most looking forward to (like this, this, this, this, this, and this) and my Target only carried four of the accessories, only two of which were still available: the navy scarf and a clutch). Considering the stunning accessories for the collection, I really wished more of them had been available to me.
The pieces that my Target did offer, were wholly unflattering to my body type. In addition, as the majority of the fabric for the items was thin, many of the pieces were entirely see-through which would require a cami (or something else) underneath for everyday wear. For me, the quality of the collection was an issue. My recommendation for purchases would be to look at the skirts which I believe would last much longer than any of the tops, or the accessories (the two of which I saw seemed like a better purchase than any of the tops).
