In an Under-$200 Jumpsuit, Oprah Just Joined a Long List of Celebs Who Swear By This Brand
We all know that the timeline of human history can be separated by BCE or CE, but for many brands, there's only one divide in time worth noting: Before Oprah and After Oprah. While Telfar, Sorel, Spanx, and even the controversial Amazon coat were all popular before the media mogul anointed them her favorite things, it's through Oprah's blessing that they really blew up and became labels that people just can't stop shopping.
And now, Oprah has given her approval to arguably the most well-kept secret among Hollywood A-listers and fashion editors alike: Alex Mill's unbelievably soft jumpsuits. In an Instagram video promoting her book club's collaboration with Apple, Oprah was spotted wearing Alex Mill's Expedition Jumpsuit in its Vintage Khaki colorway. We wouldn't be surprised if she got the recommendation from her celebrity friends. Tracee Ellis Ross and Jessica Alba have both worn Alex Mill jumpsuits, with Ross once wearing the same style as Oprah in pink and Alba seen in the Standard Cotton Jumpsuit in Army Green.

In fact, you could even argue that Oprah is late on the scene to Alex Mill's super comfy basics. Aside from Alba and Ross, plenty of other celebs have thrown their weight behind the brand's essentials. Kerry Washington once wore Alex Mill's striped shirt in green, and Katie Holmes was seen on multiple strolls with partner Emilio Vitolo in the now-discontinued Constance Coat. Even the internet's favorite Regency duke Regé-Jean Page headed outdoors in the Standard Pocket Tee in Indigo Slub Cotton, a buttery-soft classic that belongs in any closet.
The fact that its styles have simple, timeless silhouettes is perhaps the allure of Alex Mill. Reminiscent of Jenna Lyons-era J.Crew but with a touch of utilitarian whimsy (think a pair of sky blue Mary Janes paired with gingham shirt dresses you're not afraid of getting messy in), Alex Mill's clothes come in classic, enduring shapes that — as the brand advertises — could be your daily uniform.
It's become such an under-the-radar favorite for staples that its styles are often sold out — including the brand's Standard Jumpsuit in this spring's most popular color lilac, its crisp white button-down, and its chunky knit cardigan. Plus, it certainly doesn't hurt that most of Alex Mill's products are affordable at an under-$200 price mark and sometimes even on sale at Nordstrom.
