Jason Wu and Eloquii just dropped the most covet-worthy, spring plus-size collection of the season.
The collection is Wu’s second for Eloquii, which builds upon the strengths of his last. It’s centered on form-fitting clothing that hugs your curves and is ultra flattering and undeniably fashionable. After all, Wu is one of the most revered American designers in the field. He’s dressed everyone from Meghan Markle to Michelle Obama and Priyanka Chopra.
No matter who Wu is dressing, one element remains clear — his designs are effortlessly beautiful and feminine. For this spring collection, the effort Wu puts into his designs remains the same. “I designed this collection no differently than [how] I design my other collections…it’s the same design philosophy. I want to provide the same kind of elevation and glamour and beauty,” Wu shares with Yahoo Lifestyle. “It sounds really simple, but there isn’t really that much out there in the market.”
For Wu, designing fashion-forward clothing that is beautiful and elevated — no matter what size a woman is — is an “obvious choice.”
It’s refreshing that the entire Jason Wu x Eloquii line retails for under $200 and caters exclusively to plus-size women — a market that has long been ignored. A typical Jason Wu dress can retail for $1,000 or more. Here, you can snag a gorgeous floral maxi dress for only $150 and in sizes 14 to 28. However, just because the price point is more accessible doesn’t mean quality is being sacrificed.
“We wanted to make sure it looked as good and elevated as anything else I do,” Wu tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “We don’t take shortcuts and want to make sure that everything you get here is, ‘I can’t believe I’m getting it for this price.'”
Looking through the collection, you’ll find wardrobe pieces you can wear to work, on dates and special occasions like weddings. A few of our personal favorites include a sleek and refined trench dress and a stunning floral sheath dress that is perfect for wedding season, as well as chic blouses, suits and skirts that perfectly epitomize what fashionable spring dressing is all about.
Wu is one of a handful of designers pushing size-inclusivity in America, while designers in Europe have been slow to adapt. When asked why that is, Wu responded: “I suppose in America we’re much less tied down by tradition,” he explains. “And I feel like right now there’s a real moment in America, not just about plus, but about really representing people of all shapes, size, color, gender. And I think in that sense, just given how crazy the world is right now, I think there’s a real concerted effort that people want to be authentic and represented.”
The Jason Wu x Eloquii collection caters to plus-size women everywhere, offering stylish wardrobe pieces that are not only perfect for spring, but can also be worn for years to come. Shop our favorite picks below and afterwards, head to eloquii.com for the full assortment.
