Aside from being known as the daughter of the legendary Diana Ross, and for her roles in Girlfriends and Black-ish, Tracee Ellis Ross has also made a mark with her impeccable style. She’s one of the celebrities who popularised the athleisure aesthetic, and she’s an expert at mixing high-end pieces with everyday items.

Athleisure and minimal dressing are based on curating some good ol’ basics. Key items include simple T-shirts in standard colours (grey, white, black).  You also need to own a pair of chinos, a pair of culottes and a classic pair of sneakers. These items act as the foundation of many looks that will turn heads by simply adding a touch of lipstick or a statement accessory.

We’ve put together a ‘how to’ on one our favourite street-style looks from this gorgeous actor:
