Tracee Ellis Ross is, simply put, the coolest person ever. Not only does she share hilarious Instagrams about all things fashion, but when she steps out for public appearances, she looks like she actually wants to be there. You know — doing her thing, smiling brightly for the cameras, and always in a fabulous outfit.
Tracee works with stylist Karla Welch on many of her red carpet looks, but from the number of times she's worn these lace-up Céline boots ($978), I can assume they're a personal favorite she keeps in rotation. Tracee even posted a paparazzi photo of herself debuting them with the caption "SPOTTED BY GETTY // #thegirlwholovestoshop."
Tracee's pick is one of Fall's biggest trends. The shape has a slightly Western flair, especially depending on the heel and whether it's a wedge or point, but the lace-up leather that hits right above the ankle will remind you of corsets from the Victorian era, strapped tightly to the top.
As a true lover of all things vintage inspired, I do feel like, with every step Tracee takes, I'm nearing my breaking point. I. Need. These. Boots. And while Céline carries them in black and brown, which would be favorable shades for the turn of the season, I think ivory just seems to pop — even against an all-white outfit, as Tracee proved at the Jimmy Kimmel Live studio in LA.
Ahead, read on to see three different ways Tracee's worn her prized possession, then consider scooping up her exact pair or all the similar options we surfaced from some of your favorite retailers. It's safe to say these shoes will be everywhere this season, and we're happy to call Tracee the bold pioneer.
