Oprah’s ‘favorite’ Spanx AirEssentials collection now includes a fall-ready turtleneck

Sweater weather needn’t leave you itchy.

With fall in the air, Spanx expanded its AirEssentials collection on Tuesday, dropping a new Turtleneck Tunic ($148) made with the same airy fabric Oprah called “perfectly loose and lightweight” on her “Favorite Things” list last year.

The media mogul dubbed the collection’s Wide Leg Pant ($138) and Half Zip ($128) her “new leisure suit” at the time, raving that Spanx “does fantastic cozy clothes.”

“When I tell you this set feels light as air, I’m not kidding,” she added, calling the stretchy spacer material as “like buttah.”

The newest autumn-ready top is currently available in navy and turquoise, in addition to versatile white and black.

It’s not the first time Spanx has added fresh fashions this fall, as the turtleneck follows two new color drops of Oprah’s “favorite” loungewear set: burnt orange and deep cranberry.

The pumpkin spice hue is already a sweet success with celebrities, as Gwyneth Paltrow sported the orange AirEssentials Half Zip ($128) and Booty Boost Active Leggings ($98) in a recent Instagram post showcasing a few of her September outfits.

If you’re looking for autumn workwear instead, Spanx’s newest offerings include fresh checkered and plaid versions of the Perfect Pant — another Oprah pick.

The media mogul has highlighted Spanx on her “Favorite Things” roundups numerous times over the years, even before investing in the label in 2021 alongside Reese Witherspoon and Whitney Wolfe Herd.

They’re not alone in their love for the brand, as Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry and the Kardashian-Jenners (to name but a few) have all slipped on Spanx as well.

And with the holiday season nearing once again, time will tell whether Winfrey crowns the brand’s latest stretchy styles as favorites, too.
