Are you following Tracee Ellis Ross on Instagram? If not, you need to ASAP. Not only is the Black-ish actress hilarious and über-talented (peep that Golden Globe above!), but her sense of style is on. point.

She shares everything from red carpet looks to everyday streetwear, and honesty, Tracee is one of my favorite fashion-related Insta follows.

And if you want to snag her style for yourself, you’ve come to the right place. Here are three chic outfit ideas inspired by looks straight off Tracee’s feed

Look One: Boyfriend Blazer + Graphic Tee


This is such a cool way to spice up your go-to jeans and t-shirt combo. We love how Tracee layered a sleek black turtleneck under her tee—it adds warmth and looks oh-so chic. She also grabbed an oversized blazer, which adds a pop of color and a hint of polish, while still maintaining the casual vibe. Cuffed boyfriend jeans show off those fabulous shoes and a coordinating tote completes the ensemble.

With low-key sneakers and a bag big enough to hold even your bulkiest textbooks, our version below is perfect for a day on campus. Bonus: you probably already have similar pieces in your wardrobe!

Look Two: Long-Sleeve Floral Frock

Although this dress has a conservative silhouette, the color and print give it a very fashion-forward feel. Tracee and her stylists gave the cool-toned frock a dose of stylish contrast with coral-colored heels and an earthy wooden clutch.

While you may not be heading to the White House or a red carpet anytime soon, we think an outfit like this would be perfect for weekend brunch. The dress we picked has a similar print, long sleeves and ties at the waist. Slip on warm-toned shoes, then add a textured clutch. Oversized, dark-framed sunglasses add that celeb-like finishing touch.

Look Three: Button-Front Blouse + Cropped Pants

Tracee shows us that simple can be stylish. A unique color combo, smart styling and a touch of trendiness turn this casual daytime getup into something truly special.

Recreate this look by tucking a chambray blouse into olive green cropped trousers. A printed belt is a cute way to visually break up the colors, while flatforms are a fashion-forward take on classic black sandals. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a minimalist pair of threadthrough earrings.
