Actress and comedienne Melissa McCarthy has always had a love for fashion—did you know it was actually an early dream of hers to become a designer? Between her ongoing passion for design and her experience with having costumes made specifically for her, we can’t think of a better (or funnier!) star to launch a line we’re sure to love. That’s why Gwynnie Bee is thrilled to introduce select pieces of Melissa McCarthy Seven7 into our collection!
“When you go above a size 12, you don’t lose your sense of style.” Melissa said in a recent release. “I want getting dressed to be fun again.” This ethos is clear in her collection, which consists of versatile daytime separates with an emphasis on denim. Each piece can been styled individually to fit a woman’s taste, and she’s testing that out herself. Dressing for your mood everyday is an important part of this line to Melissa, who said in a statement, “I love the playfulness of fashion. I put on one outfit and I feel one way, I put on another and I get to be a different gal. Clothes are a wonderful tool.”
Melissa provided a few tips on how to wear the versatile clothing line: layered, with confidence and pride, and give it your own personal touch. These wearable season-to-season staples are built with comfort and movement in mind—these clothes are meant to be lived in. Melissa shared with ELLE.com that she’ll be wearing pieces from the line in the upcoming Ghostbusters movie. If they hold up fighting ghosts, they’ll definitely hold up in your everyday life!
Melissa’s other top priority is to get the fit perfect. Because of her own experience having trouble finding clothes that fit well, she has gone to great measures to ensure the pieces work for any woman. To get the fit just right, the line is fit on a size 16 and a size 22, and not just scaled up. There are thoughtful tailoring details like bust darts and pleated backs, as well as blending wovens with knits to provide a great fit and shape for all body types.
The Melissa McCarthy Seven7 denim line is a great example of thoughtful fit and construction. And what makes this denim so special? A winning combination or internal paneling provides comfortable tummy control, and 4-part-waistband to contour waistline and prevent gap. Our staff raved about the fit of the denim—we’re sure you’ll feel the same way. Her jeans also include flat-seam construction for a streamlined look and a genius stretch fabric that holds its shape.
Gwynnie Bee is excited to carry a select offering from Melissa McCarthy Seven7, including great denim, beautiful printed blouses, and comfy basics. Ready to rock the look?
