Ellen: My clothes will save you!

Ellen DeGeneres can't wait to tell guests on her talk show that she's wearing pieces from her own line.

The US talk show host confirmed she was launching a lifestyle brand last year. It's called ED and now includes fashion, which was inspired by the preppy look which Ellen favours.

"I want my line to be the answer to 'I have nothing to wear,'" she told glamour.com. "Guests on my show always ask me where they can get my clothes. Now I'm excited to tell them, 'I'm wearing me!'"

Pictures of some of the pieces have been unveiled, including a dark blue denim bomber jacket. Ellen believes the style is not appreciated enough at the moment as it is so comfortable and easy to wear, explaining that it's an essential in her wardrobe. The version in her line comes in at $195.

Also on offer is a pair of pale blue and white striped shorts with a matching blazer. You might not necessarily think of shorts when you consider Ellen's style, but these were included to show how much her look has changed over the years.

"I used to wear giant Hammer pants," she laughed. "Now that I’m confident in who I am, I wear more fitted clothes that show off what the good Lord gave me."

The line will go on sale on Edbyellen.com in June and also includes things like striped sweaters and checked trousers. It will likely hit stores too, although that's being discussed at the moment, plus there is a secret but big event planned for New York Fashion Week later this year.

“These products are just quality,” Ellen told WWD earlier this week. "My concern was if it’s got my name on it, I want to be really proud of it… I have very few things in my closet that I had held on to for eight or ten years. I’m trying to do something classic that is going to last."
