Tracee Ellis Ross made a case for patent leather as a spring must-have in her latest Instagram post today.

The “Black-ish” actress looked beautiful in blue for the photo. She smiled for the camera wearing a sleek Christian Siriano set that featured an edgy blazer in a shiny vinyl material. The jacket had a plunging neckline with no lapels and clasped together in the middle. The shoulders of the jacket also had a boxy shape. On the bottom, she wore a matching PVC blue midi skirt with a tight fit. She kept it simple with accessories and wore a pair of small hoop earrings.

She elevated the already glam look with her sky-high shoes. The star wore a pair of preppy meets grunge footwear. The Casadei Mary Janes platform pumps matched her look with their patent leather finish and also featured a high block heel, a round toe and a thin front buckle fastening.  The shoes are available for $1,095 on Farfetch.com.

When it comes to Ross’ clothing aesthetic, she tends to gravitate toward uber-stylish and modern silhouettes. For example, recently, she donned a fiery bright red fringe jumpsuit coordinated with a pointed-toe pump matching in the same vibrant color. And for a more formal, statement-making moment, she slipped into a glossy tank top gown that had a billowing mermaid-style skirt in the same fabric for a slick finish.

The “Girlfriends” star has also made a name for herself within the fashion industry, having starred in campaigns for brands like J. Crew, Kenzo and Pyer Moss.
