She’s powerful using her words, secure with all her beauty, and grounded in her beliefs. There’s a lot to learn from Tracee Ellis Ross when it comes to living your best life, but for now I’ve compiled seven style lessons from 2017. Though she’s spent most of her career in the entertainment industry, she’s no stranger to fashion. Whether she’s styling herself in an empowering message t-shirt or rocking a Chanel gown with cornrows and bantu knots, she’s nothing short of an effortless force.
Lesson #1: It’s fashionable to stand out in color.
Tracee is not afraid of bold hues. When in couture, go bright or stay home.
Lesson #2: Don’t be afraid to mix prints and patterns.
Whether you use one base color or two, go all the way with confidence. Trust in yourself.
Lesson #3: You can wear anything at any age.
It’s no secret that Tracee is 45 years young and wears lipstick to the gym. Keyword: gym.
Lesson #4: Cherish vintage pieces, forever.
Whether it’s a YSL dress or a Agnes B. button down from high school. Tracee loves to re-wear in a new way.
Lesson #5: Don’t hide your accessories nor leave your red lipstick at home.
She’s a Golden Globe winner and #TimesUp advocate, dress for what you believe in + manifest in your truth.
Lesson #6: Be your own stylist – and kill it.
Be feminine, be aware, above all, be your definition of alluring. Don’t let society define your style.
Lesson #7: Pose often + have fun doing it.
