Draper James Now Has a Seriously Chic Plus Size Collection
Reese Witherspoon’s lifestyle brand has teamed up with ELOQUII on a limited-edition collection that’s full of spring must-haves.
Draper James is known for its cheerful, Southern aesthetic that has drawn a big following. Now, Reese Witherspoon’s lifestyle brand is expanding with a capsule collection, Draper James x ELOQUII. Previously, the brand only offered sizes 0-14, but the new line features styles in sizes 12-28.
"Here at Draper James we care deeply about our customers' feedback and they've consistently asked for expanded sizing. We were determined to set out to find the right partner to better serve her, which led us to ELOQUII, a brand whose fashion and fit we love," Reese Witherspoon said in a press release.
The collection is fit for carefree, spring days with fun prints (a tropical-inspired parrot pattern and gingham) and flirty silhouettes. The line also includes accessories, like tote bags, clutches, and pouches.
“The Draper James for ELOQUII collection captures Draper James’ signature southern aesthetic coupled with our design and fit that our customer loves and knows us for,” ELOQUII’s Creative Director Jodi Arnold told RealSimple.com. “This collection is perfect for the spring and summer season as it is colorfully upbeat and gives a modern twist on timeless styles! I look forward to seeing our customer styling the pieces their own way and showcasing how they perfectly transition from the office to outdoor picnics.”

Parrot Print Jumpsuit
When asked which item was her favorite from the collection, Arnold told RealSimple.com: “Every piece from this collection evokes happiness, but if I had to choose one, it would be the Layton Parrot Print Jumpsuit! It screams vacation and fun. I can see this piece paired with our Leah Jeweled Kitten Heel for a fully colorful look or our 9 to 5 Stretch Blazer for an office setting.”

Gingham 3/4 Sleeve Wrap Top and Skirt
This may look like a dress, but the pieces are actually separates. Wear the wrap top and skirt together for a flirty look that you’ll want to wear to a sunny spring brunch. Or, pair the top with jeans for a casual style, and the skirt with a white t-shirt for the office. Whichever you choose, there’s a lot of versatility with these two pieces.
