STRAIGHT-LEG DRESS PANTS
Submitted by Tina L. of Toronto, ON
Welt back pockets
Straight or slightly flared pant leg
Like the Avery pant but with wider legs
“Essentially, a slightly-flared-cut Avery pant! I really like the look of the Avery, but my large calves mean slim pants are usually a no-go. Would love to see a mildly flared version (or a generous straight cut). A V-shaped panel in the front to elongate the waist/waistband. Add some welt pockets in the back, to look nice and clean when empty but still have space for a Presto card and keys. Bonus if the pockets could be big enough to fit a phone!” - Tina
Submitted by Nicolette B. of Toronto, ON
Pullover length reaches the hip
“This sweater/top is a half-zip in a heavy+ fabric like French terry. It would hit at the hip. Thumb hooks would be fun, or a contrast colour on the zip to give it some punch. For those wanting a less sporty look, it would be available in a solid colour without the contrasting racing stripe.” - Nicolette
TULIP HEM SURPLICE TOP
Submitted by Martha M. of Etobicoke, ON
3/4 length sleeves
Crossover front with centred tulip hem
CROPPED BOXY PULLOVER
Submitted by Nancy M. of Belleville, ON
Slightly boxy fit
Reverses from wide scoopneck to v-neck
Neck and waist bands
“I’m looking for this cropped sweatshirt-style top right now in white, but this could be a staple piece in any colour and any season. Reversible with a generous, wide scoop on one side, a V on the reverse and styled with a boxy fit.” - Nancy
PUFF-SLEEVE GATHERED-WAIST JUMPSUIT
Submitted by Shirley H. of Guelph, ON
Slight puff shoulders
Scoopneck with buttoned keyhole cutout
Long sleeves with gathered wrist
Elastic gathered at the natural waist
Straight leg cut
“Top half with the sleeves and buttoned keyhole opening of the beautiful new Janice short jumper. I would love it done with full-length sleeves, but still with that trim that allows you to push it up to 3/4. The shoulders could be slightly gathered as in the Janice romper. I picture a relaxed fit with that gathered waistband, and possibly a removable sash. And I’d love pockets! (Pockets rock!) I was imagining a straight leg cut for a long leggy look, although it could work well with the leg cut of the Perle.” - Shirley
SPLIT V-NECK DRESSY TEE
Submitted by Yasmina S. of Gatineau, QC
Split v-neck blouse
Front faux placket
LONG-SLEEVED TULIP HEM TUNIC
Submitted by Jocelyn A. of Regina, SK
Layered front like the Alden top
Tulip hem in the front
Rounded hem in the back
“I love love love your tulip tops! Both pieces I have purchased have been sleeveless — would love to see something available for fall-winter wear.” - Jocelyn
ROUND NECK PEPLUM TOP
Submitted by Michelle B. of Jordan Falls, NS + Lindsay M. of Abbotsford, B.C.
Elbow-length or long sleeves
Peplum flair that starts at natural waist
“This is a submission for the Peplum Top. Sleeve reaches to the elbow, with a high round neckline. The peplum starts just above the belly button and has pleats (4) in the front.” - Michelle
“A classic peplum top with a round neckline and figure-flattering feminine shape. This simple design has no harsh trendy cuts. Rather, it pulls in at the natural waist and has a soft flair that ends at the hip line (or just below, depending on your height). Can easily be dressed up with a pencil skirt or dress pants, or dressed down with jeans.” - Lindsay
Diane S. of Ottawa, ON + Geneviéve M.L. of Hilden, NS also submitted similar peplum tops and will receive prizes if this design is chosen as a winner!
REVERSIBLE FIT + FLARE DRESS
Submitted by Kelly F. of Ontario + Karen B. of Whitby, ON
Kelly + Karen submitted similar dress ideas that we combined into one design.
Reverses from v-neckline to boatneck
Omitting pockets since it is reversible
Fit and flare silhouette
3/4-length or long sleeves
“This design really just copies 2 designs from your spring collection (Hilden top, RJ dress). A midi, fit and flare dress that has 3/4 or long sleeves to take us into the fall.” - Kelly
“This dress steals its style from the award-winning RJ Flounce Midi, but adds an additional touch of glamour and the warmth of long sleeves for fall and winter. It has long, fairly fitted, sleeves. The pockets of the RJ Flounce Midi are omitted - because this version is reversible! When the dress is reversed, the boatneck turns into a sexy V-neck.” - Karen
REVERSIBLE SIDE SLIT TOP
Submitted by Laura B. of Toronto, ON
Reverses from sweetheart neckline to a scoopneck
Tie at the back of the neck that can be hidden
Side slits on either side
“My reversible top (because I know Miik is awesome at offering reversible tops) features a sweetheart neckline and a gentle scoop neck with a small tie that can be tied into a bow at the back as a sexy feature or hidden inside the top. It features slits at the base so that it can be worn elegantly atop a skirt or pants, or tucked in. It could also be tied at the waist with a Miik belt.” - Laura
- You can shop LAST YEAR'S DESIGN CONTEST WINNER!
- Congratulations Susan M. of Calgary, Alberta whose submission was made by Miik in this season's SS22 collection. And now you can wear it for yourself! Meet the RJ dress.
The beautiful RJ midi dress is classic, timeless, and everything Miik stands for. Versatile and comfortable, without compromising on style. The v-neckline gives it an elegant look without revealing too much – and did we mention it has pockets?!
The design rendered from Susan's submission last year, that's now the RJ dress you see (and can wear!) today!
