Leave it to plus-size bloggers to be the change that the fashion industry needs to see. On the heels of the launch of Nicolette Mason and Gabi Gregg’s fashion-forward line Premme, style influencer Katie Sturino has teamed up with Eloquii on a 22-piece collection for sizes 12 to 28. The line is priced from $49.90 to $140.99 and is available today. This is a natural progression for Sturino, as she became a style ambassador for the brand this year and hosts Closet Confidential, the brand’s YouTube series that aims to help viewers tackle their biggest style challenges.
“Over the last few years the fashion industry has become more inclusive and I couldn’t be more thrilled, however we still have a ways a go!” Sturino tells Refinery29. “I would love to see more fashionable options, thus my collaboration with Eloquii.” The style influencer’s collection taps directly into her personal wish list. “I made sure to include overalls in this collection is because I’ve experienced a struggle in finding a flattering pair and can’t wait to see these styled in unique,” she said. In addition to 9-to-5 staples, customers can expect to find statement pieces like a sequin pencil skirt and bomber jacket with shearling sleeves.
Sturino added: “My signature style comes down to fun, fashion-forward basics and yet finding clothing like this in my size has always been a struggle. With this collection, I wanted to share my love for chic, sporty essentials with the Eloquii customer, inspired by my favorite pieces in my closet and encourage ladies to try tricky trends.”
“We founded Eloquii with the idea that fashion doesn’t stop at a particular size,” Jodi Arnold, Vice President of Design and Creative Director, told Refinery29. “As a brand we are fashion first and believe every woman should have access to great style, trend options and inspiration. With this collection we created something for everyone that reflects our attention to fit from our Printed Fit and Flare Shirtdress with Tipping to our Tie Waist Robe Coat.”
