Ashley Graham and Jordyn Woods Introduce Their New Addition Elle Collections
Even better, you can buy the pieces straight off the NYFW runway.
If you're interested in finding out what everyone will be wearing in the seasons to come, it's wise to keep an eye on New York Fashion Week. The only problem? It's not always so inclusive. While that's starting to change (especially since major designers like Prabal Gurung have used the NYFW runway to make a huge statement about body positivity), we still get really excited every time we see the fashion industry taking a step in the right direction.

That's why we were psyched to see Ashley Graham's latest collection for Addition Elle being featured on the catwalk. Graham made an appearance (obvs), but the show also featured many other models breaking boundaries when it comes to what people see on the runway. As a bonus, it looks like the brand is taking part in the "see now, buy now" model (allowing customers to buy products right after they are shown on the runway) that's becoming popular with high fashion brands.
Believe it or not, this is actually Graham's 16th collection with Addition Elle. This time around, she went for super-sexy cutouts and rich emerald tones. Prices range from $30 to $95, and everything comes in sizes X–3X and 36DD–42G/H.
Even more exciting, this season also marks the introduction of model and body positivity advocate Jordyn Woods' new collection for the brand. Woods' designs are exclusively ready-to-wear, including everything from of-the-moment slashed skinny jeans to an outfit-making denim military jacket.
Many of the pieces in the collection are under $100, meaning you can scoop up a few items that are sure to add an instant refresh to your fall wardrobe basics without dropping too much cash. While many body positive advocates don't love the "plus-size" label, we're just happy to see that the pool of fashion-forward options beyond size 14 is steadily on the rise.
