When I heard Style Goddess Tracee Ellis Ross was dropping a clothing line in JCPenney I literally SCREAMED! She has been my fave since discovering her as Joan, the quarky, sophisticated, high powered stylish attorney (I wanted to be) on the hit TV show Girlfriends. She's always been true to her style... classic, sophisticated and sexy. Her approach to style is easy, effortless and stays true to over sized silhouettes which mirror the iconic style of her mother, THE QUEEN, Diana Ross.
Although I visited the website when the collection launched, I decided to visit my local JCPenney to try on the collection. Everything fit true to size... A huge sigh of relief! They literally had every piece in plus size in the store. I tried on everything. The jumpsuit stood out to me the most. It's black... I know. However, I couldn't deny how classic, timeless and flattering it looked on my figure and it has pockets (I'm dead!). As a plus size girl with big hips and thighs, I was relieved that the pants actually fit. It's literally a dream wrapped up in a jumpsuit, perfect for a holiday party or any occasion for that matter.
This look screams JOAN CLAYTON! I had to have it! I purchased a size 1X but would encourage sizing up if you are larger in the hips and butt. The sash is the perfect touch because it brings in the waist to show the curves. I'm all about showing off the curves! The material is flowy, breatheable and very comfortable.
I paired the jumpsuit with a gold and black striped blazer, gold ball drop earrings and a gold sparkly peep toe pump, reminiscent of Tracee Ellis Ross's style. And of course her favorite lip color, Ruby Woo by MAC Cosmetics.
If you're looking for a classic black jumpsuit that can be worn dress or casual, this one is for you! Seriously, I am in LOVE!
