Tracee Ellis Ross proved that when it comes to fashion, more is always best.

Taking to Instagram on Monday, the “Black-Ish” actress showed off her outfit for a day of press and interviews as styled by Karla Welch. The full Bottega Veneta ensemble mastered the monochrome with ease as Ellis Ross tucked a ribbed knit cardigan into coordinating teal high-rise trousers.

Color-coordinated attire has quickly become the must-see styling hack of 2021, offering a streamlined route into a chic ensemble. Stars like Kourtney Kardashian, Eva Longoria and even Michelle Obama and Jill Biden have tried out the trend for themselves in the past weeks alone.

On her feet, the media personality broke out a set of celebrity-favorited sandals from none other than Bottega Veneta. The green square-toe style came with smooth leather straps and a 3.5-inch curved heel, finished off with a rubber-injected leather sole for added comfortability and cushioning. Similar colorways of the Stretch sandals can be found for $790 at BottegaVeneta.com.

Bottega Veneta’s designs and footwear have quickly made it the brand of the summer when it comes to must-have pieces. With many of its footwear styles feature trending elements such as square-toe fronts and thong-toe finishes, the silhouettes keep up with growing revitalizations of ’90s-inspired designs that are sweeping the street style world. Spotted on the likes of Kylie Jenner in addition to Olivia Culpo, Emily Ratajkowski, Kourtney Kardashian and more, the Italian brand has risen the ranks as a top label for “It” girls across all industries.

Ellis Ross herself is a huge fan of the label and often frequents its Puddle boots in particular. The brand’s Puddle serves as a rain boot-inspired pair with smooth rubber uppers and a cutoff ankle shaft. Set atop a chunky curved outsole, the wellie boot is made from 100% biodegradable polymer and is also a genderless design, wearable by all. You can shop the Puddle boots in a mix of colorways for $650 at BottegaVeneta.com.

Throughout her time in quarantine, the “High Note” star used social media as an outlet to connect with her fans about her “Black-Ish” 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 in Asics sneakers.

As a modern style figure, her 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.”
