Meghan Markle's glam style, in plus sizes: Jason Wu's new Eloquii collection is seriously sexy
At a time when inclusive fashion continues to gain momentum in the industry, a new collaboration between Jason Wu and plus-size retailer Eloquii is the latest achievement in plus-size fashion. The collection is filled with dreamy sheath dresses that mimic the ones Wu has designed for the Duchess of Sussex during her latest royal tour and previous events.The line is composed mostly of evening gowns, save for a satin tuxedo suit and a fit-and-flare opera coat. Each garment is inherently representative of Wu’s luxurious design sensibility, now tailored for a plus-size consumer. The entire collection is available in plus-sizes only (sizes 14-28). “Style comes before size, simply put,” Wu tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “The design approach in creating the Jason Wu x Eloquii collection mirrors the same for my mainline-I design with the glamour, simplicity, and the female form in mind.”Although Wu once created a limited release with luxury plus-size retailer 11 Honoré, this collection is more comprehensive and less expensive compared with his main line’s usual four-digit price tag.In the past, Wu has dressed some of the world’s most powerful women, including former first lady Michelle Obama and a myriad of celebrities like Oscar-winning actresses Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lawrence. With this collection, he homes in on his signature glitz and glamour aesthetic for the holiday season. The color palette is rich in metallics, red, black, and white. The dresses are understated, with small subtle details that are elegant and timeless, like a twisted knot along the shoulder, a sweetheart neckline, a ruffle around the waist, and a flattering drape around an often self-conscious area, the stomach.In recent years, the fashion industry has faced scrutiny for its lack of size representation on the runway, in retail stores, and on magazine covers and in editorials. In the past two years in particular, we’ve seen more change and progress for size-inclusivity than we’ve seen in the last 10 years. Plus-size models like Ashley Graham, Candice Huffine, and the collection’s campaign star, Paloma Elsesser, have risen to the top of the model food chain, walking in runways shows at NYFW and landing major magazine covers. Plus, Dia & Co. announced in September its historic partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) to create the first initiative aimed at size-inclusive fashion education.But one of the key issues plus-size consumers have voiced in the past is the inability to find high-quality, fashionable clothing at a fair price point. Enter Jason Wu and Eloquii. “This collection is the perfect combination of our design approach and fit expertise, with Jason’s distinct feminine design aesthetic, says Jodi Arnold, creative director of Eloquii, to Yahoo Lifestyle. “Partnering with Jason has been an amazing experience, and I think it sets an amazing example of how you can create a luxe and unique collaboration at an approachable price.” This partnership comes on the heels of the recent announcement of Walmart’s acquisition of Eloquii, which will only serve to bolster the brand style mission. “We will continue business as usual in offering trend-driven and innovative style to our customer,” says Arnold. For Wu’s entrance into plus-size fashion, it was strategic. “I believe it’s about the opportunity and right partner. I’ve always been dedicated to celebrating the female form and found an amazing partner in Eloquii, a forward-thinking brand whose fashion and fit I admire.” Ahead, shop the entire Jason Wu x Eloquii collection just in time for the holidays, starting at $90.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle:• Kendall Jenner smolders in season’s hottest puffer coat: Steal her style starting at $45 • Old Navy’s Sherpa coat is the only one you need for fall — and it’s under $100 • Meghan Markle wears the season’s best transitional coat — shop the look starting at $50Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

8 plus-size influencers share their biggest shopping gripes — and the brands that get it right
Imagine trying on five pairs of the same-style size 18 shorts in a small, poorly lit dressing room because each pair you try on frustratingly fits differently. Or being plus-size and needing to find a last-minute outfit when there are only a handful of brick-and-mortar stores offering extended sizes. This is just a glimpse of the problems that we curvy folks have to deal with on a regular basis.Shopping is not an easy task for most, but it’s especially challenging for those whose body type does not fall within the industry norm, aka above a size 10. I’m not going to lie — it totally sucked growing up with the amount of plus-size exclusion I faced, and it definitely played a negative role in my self-esteem. While the plus-size fashion industry is growing, we aren’t seeing enough expansion and diversity in the market just yet.With roughly 67 percent of women in the U.S. being considered plus-size, brands that don’t offer extended sizes are missing out on literally millions of potential customers — and dollars. This statistic does not even account for the large market of plus-size male customers who are also in search of fashionable clothing for their size.There are still big-box brands with the resources to make great clothing that refuse to embrace the prevalent curvy customer and invest in quality design and manufacturing. And claiming you carry plus sizes and then banishing the meek selection to an unidentifiable area of the store is just not cutting it anymore.That said, if there were a time to be plus-size in fashion, it would be now. Ever since mega-babe Ashley Graham made the cover of Sports Illustrated, many brands have jumped on the plus-size bandwagon. But some brands seem to want to cash in on the body-positivity movement by thoughtlessly creating clothing that does not actually fit the plus-size customer’s body — mainly because the designs were not researched and the patterns were not scaled correctly.Some brands are even using models who are much too small for the plus-size market, showing an unrealistic representation of the clothing. As a plus-size fashionista myself, I long for the day when brands will fully invest in and embrace their curvy customers by offering more accessible fashion.Don’t get me wrong — not everything is bad about the plus-size market right now. We have more options than ever before. There are standout brands making an impression on the plus-size community and being industry leaders. The clear winners are staple brands like ASOS and Eloquii. The online e-tailer ASOS is always offering edgy designs that push the plus-size fashion envelope and parallel straight-size designs, while Eloquii is all about quality and fit. Lane Bryant is paving the way by being super-inclusive and body positive, creating diverse ads and leading the unretouched-photo campaign showcasing women’s real bodies. (Another positive sign: The current season of Project Runway has models of all sizes.)Since the fashion industry is ever-evolving and has a lot to learn about its plus-size customers, I wanted to hear from the curvy influencers who are paving the way. I talked to crusaders including Denise Bidot, Ashley Nell Tipton, Nadia Aboulhosn, and others.Check out what these plus-size leaders have to say about their biggest fashion gripes and the brands they think are already killing the game. They, like me, agree that everyone deserves access to great fashion regardless of their size or gender, and I’m excited for the strides that the future will bring.For more style inspiration, follow me on Instagram and read my style blog, Margie Plus.Read more from Yahoo Beauty + Style:Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
