Tracee Ellis Ross is using her bold sense of fashion to make a strong statement this week.

The “Girlfriends” alumna took to Instagram yesterday to show her support for Georiga Democratic U.S. Senate challenger Rev. Raphael Warnock through a standout ensemble. The look included a black T-shirt that read “It’s a Warnock Life” in bright blue font teamed with classic high-rise mom jeans and oversize shades; the sunglasses come from Rihanna’s Fenty lineup and retail for $440 on the brand’s website.

“Got balcony sharp today! It’s the only place I went thank u @raphaelwarnock @jimmychoo & @fenty for my gifts,” wrote Ellis Ross in her caption. “PS: Early voting ends Jan 1, so Georgians make your plan to cast your ballot early! #itsawarnocklife.”

Tapping Jimmy Choo for her footwear look of the day, the “Black-Ish” star opted for the brand’s on-trend square-toe boots. The style, titled the Mahesa silhouette, features a knee-high finish formed with sleek leather uppers, an angular 3.5-inch heel and a square-toe finish. Topped off with the fashion house’s gold logo plaque, you can shop Ellis Ross’ boots for $1,495 at Net-a-Porter.

Square-toe footwear returned to the scene in 2019 and has continued into this year as a major cross-seasonal trend. Be it a classic boot, a flat slide or a towering stiletto heel, the minimalistic silhouette falls in line with a ’90s-inspired revitalization of fashion, as seen with combat boots and thong-toe shoe styles, as well as pops of neon color across apparel and footwear.
