Danielle Brooks Just Released A New Size-Inclusive Collection

Danielle Brooks has retired her Orange Is the New Black khaki prison garb in favor of something a little more luxe.


The actress best known for her role as Taystee on the hit Netflix show has stepped into a new role: that of designer. In collaboration with luxe plus-size distributor Universal Standard, Brooks has created a capsule collection!

Each collection acts as an answer to the question, “What has been something you've always wanted to wear but always have trouble finding in your size?"

And let me tell you, the three-piece collection is filled with on-trend, size-inclusive, universally flattering styles that all absolutely slay! Read on to see what the actress/designer had to say about each piece.

In My Overalls

“The overalls were a no brainer," Brooks told PeopleStyle. “For years I have looked for a pair of overalls that weren't too baggy in the crotch, that presented some type of wow factor and that weren't too long in the body. This one will be sure to satisfy every woman who has felt like me."

Devil In A Shirt Dress

“The shirt dress was inspired by one of my fashion icons, Solange Knowles. Too often, I'm not able to wear the cool unique statement pieces that I see because they never run in my size. This piece will have people asking you, 'excuse me, where did you get that?!'"

Sweater Weather

“With this piece, you are able to dress it up, dress it down, wear it off the shoulder, and even rock it as a chic hoodie," she explains. “It's what every woman will be looking to wear for fall."

The Universal Standard x Danielle Brooks collection, in sizes 10-28, is available now at Universal Standard. Grab 'em while you can.

What are three go-to pieces in your capsule collection? Let us know in the comments below.

Dismantling The Myth Of Asexuality In Disability

The conversation about sex and intimacy often neglects the experiences of individuals with disabilities. Society's misguided notion that individuals with disabilities are devoid of desires for love, intimacy, and sexual fulfillment is not only preposterous but also damaging, but one disability activist is here to challenge that narrative.

"Society's perception of disability has greatly influenced my own understanding and expression of my sexuality," said author and disabled influencer Tylia L. Flores. "The stigma associated with my disability made it difficult for me to express myself freely, leading to self-esteem issues during my teenage years."
