You’ve probably heard of Oprah’s Favorite Things list…it comes out every year around the holidays with all of Oprah’s favorite things including everything from food to home to wellness to tech and SO much more. She even shares her favorite stylish finds! Last year, in her “Stylish Gifts” section, she shared a favorite from one of my favorite brands, so I knew I had to try them…
Spanx AirEssentials Collection
I love Oprah… so when she says something’s good, I trust her. And I’m glad I did because the Spanx AirEssentials collection is so comfortable, I’m practically living in their new pullovers, pants, and jumpsuit!
Oprah specifically loved the matching half-zip pullover and wide-leg pants. She said “You might know Spanx for its shapewear, but it also does fantastic cozy clothes. When I tell you this set feels light as air, I’m not kidding. It’s my new leisure suit. The perfectly loose-and-lightweight fabric is like buttah!”
…And I agree. The AirEssentials fabric is SO lightweight and breathable, it’s perfect for women going through menopause or who just run warm. The fabric also drapes beautifully, and the fit is wonderful. It also is pretty wrinkle resistant which is one of the reasons it’s a great set for travel. Keep scrolling for some of my new favorites (and Oprah’s) from the collection…
By the way, this isn’t the first time Oprah shared something from Spanx on her Favorite Things list. Find more of Oprah’s Favorite Things from Spanx here.
The first AirEssentials piece I want to highlight is the half-zip pullover. This is one of those pieces that you can throw on at home while working or relaxing, when you travel for ultimate comfort, as a third layer on your way to a workout class, or even with jeans to run errands. It’s casual but still very chic and I love the zipper and spread collar detail. In the photos above, I’m wearing it zipped up a little higher, but you could unzip it even more if you want. It has an oversized, relaxed fit (I’m wearing a small) but still hits around the hip so you can leave it untucked or do a half tuck into your pants…

Speaking of pants…why not get the matching AirEssentials wide-leg pants?? They are unbelievably comfortable, SO soft, and the fabric really is light-as-air. Just trust me (and Oprah) on this one! These pants come in Regular (30.5” inseam), Tall (33.5”), and Petite (28.5” inseam) so you can get the perfect pair for your body and leg length. I’m wearing a Petite Small and they are perfect (I’m 5’4” for reference). The fit around the stomach and on the legs is really flattering and has that perfect amount of stretch so you feel secure but also very comfortable. I’m wearing them in the matching black color, but they come in a few other color options too, as you’ll see below 😉

I loved the set so much that I decided to get it in a second color. I’m wearing the same half-zip pullover and wide-leg pants in this gorgeous green-gray color! The pants also come in navy and black, but the pullover comes in a few other color options. I’m wearing the same sizes in the pants and pullover.
If you’re worried about the length of the wide-leg pants above, you could try the cropped wide-leg pants instead. I’m wearing them in a Regular Small. The Regular length has a 25.5” inseam, which is great, cropped length for my frame and about 3 inches shorter than the pants I’m wearing in the black and green sets. The Petite has a 23.5” inseam and the Tall have a 28.5” inseam. I’m wearing the same matching pullover in the color Fawn that’s so pretty for spring and summer.
If you like the ease of a one-and-done piece but still want extreme comfort, try the AirEssentials jumpsuit! It has the same amazing comfort, breathability, and style as the separates. I’m wearing the Regular length in a Small, but this jumpsuit also comes in Tall (33.5” inseam) and Petite (28.5”). The Regular has a 30.5” inseam that’s a tad long on me but I’m wearing a pair of platform sneakers for some added height, which helps. If I wore flats, I’d probably want the Petite length.
