For the first time, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand, Goop, is dipping into the plus-size fashion market. The brand has collaborated with Universal Standard, a plus-size fashion label, to launch a size-inclusive capsule collection. It comprises five elegant wardrobe essentials every woman needs in her closet: a dress, tux jacket, cropped wool pants, jumpsuit and peacoat, all in sizes 00-40.

“Goop is a wellness site with self-care at its core,” said Paltrow in a press release. “Our focus is helping women make choices that make them feel good and eliminate shame in their lives, whether that’s linked to sexual health, age, or stress. I believe we’re stronger if all archetypes are included, and we’re all able to be seen and lift each other up, which is why we partnered with Universal Standard to create this line of beautifully made pieces. We’re excited to work with them in this new capacity, and hope this collaboration continues to push this conversation into the mainstream.”

The collection is hitting at the perfect time for the holiday season as well. There’s an empire waist maxi dress with soft pleats on the back — a lovely dress to wear on Christmas day. We especially love the classy black jumpsuit, an ideal day-to-night office holiday party look. The peacoat is an effortless addition to any wardrobe. But our personal favorite is the tuxedo jacket and wool trousers. It’s a perfect balance of sexy meets sophisticated, an outfit combo to ring in the new year in style. Although these pieces are on the pricier side ($225 to $395), think of them as an investment. They’re quality wardrobe essentials you’ll wear throughout your lifetime.

Without further ado, shop the entire collection below.

We love the elegant pleats on this empire waist dress, and the wine color is particularly festive. Because it’s shorter in the front, you can still show off your party shoes. If the burgundy shade is not your cup of tea, this dress is also available in black.

This is must-have for any working woman. You’ll be comfortable all day in this jumpsuit, but still look like a million bucks. Add a blazer and pumps for an upscale look or tone it down during the weekend with a denim jacket and sneakers.
