Tracee Ellis Ross Slips On Edgy Thigh-High Boots With an Open Jacket to Get Out the Vote

Tracee Ellis Ross caught her almost 10 million followers’ attention on Instagram last night with a daring look in a move to get out the vote.

The “Black-Ish” star posed in a window sill wearing a set of impressive thigh-skimming black vinyl boots set with an unexpectedly low heel and a chunky sole; brands like Prada, Ermanno Scervino and Bottega Veneta all offer similar styles from $1,590 to $1,850. Ellis Ross then matched the tall boots to a soft green trench coat with an open fit and buckled sleeves.

The actress captioned the post: “My face when people tell me they’re not voting. Feel free to fill the comments with reasons why we should all vote.”

Ellis Ross’ recent move encouraging followers to get out and vote is no new action for the star. Her activism dates back decades and was recently highlighted when she shared a throwback picture from her days on the “Girlfriends” set.

The series’ star posted a retro picture of herself and her costars posing in looks that combined a few of the early 2000s biggest trends as they supported John Kerry’s 2004 presidential bid. Ellis herself modeled a “Kerry Para Presidente” T-shirt teamed with low-rise flare jeans and a chunky studded belt. The “High Note” star then completed the ensemble with classic 2000s thong-toe sandals, complete with dual brown and yellow layering.

Throughout her time in quarantine, the “Girlfriends” star has used social media as an outlet to connect with her fans about her series and about everyday life. And even as lockdown measures have eased, the star has continued to give glimpses into behind-the-scenes style moments from her TV series, as well as real-time looks at her home life and workouts.

As a modern style icon, Ross’ closet isn’t lacking in designer labels. Some of the luxe brands in her collection include Christopher John Rogers, Loewe and Christian Louboutin. She also has starred in campaigns for Kenzo’s spring ’17 collection alongside Jessie Williams of “Grey’s Anatomy.”
