A new exciting collab is right around the corner! Tracee Ellis Ross is teaming up with JC Penny and debuting a full clothing line. Much lauded for her looks on and off the red Carpet, Tracee has cemented herself as as stylista in addition to being an actress. I am very excited at the thought of being able to essentially shop her creativity. Let's have a closer sneak peek look at some of her offerings.
In true Tracee fashion, the preview cements her quirky mix of classic and fashion forward pieces. According to reports, she will also have accessories and home items in the 40+ piece collection. Some highlights are definitely the "Glow" dress and the modern tuxedo. The best part of all? It will go up to a size 3X and may include the entire collection IN STORES. Tracee is definitely outdoing herself for her debut collection.
When it comes to this line, Tracee herself was very careful to think carefully about what style and fashion meant to her. "I feel that clothing can be your armor and also your joy. I sort of [go] between the two: Sometimes it’s how I protect myself and sometimes it’s how I express myself. I feel like this collection has both—the tux is sort of your armor, and the "Glow" dress is your joy. Everything falls somewhere in between on those."
I love the fact that many of her pieces are oversized and yet inclusive to size other lines often ignore. (The 3X + crowd.) And since this is a celeb collab, yo won't have t worry about the back of the store treatment. The line releases November 12. What pieces are your early faves? Let me know in the comments.
