Tracee Ellis Ross is no stranger to a super-glamourous red carpet moment. She rocks even the most over-the-top gowns with panache and stunningly bold beauty looks to boot. Although the actor typically favors comfort over glam when it comes to her off-duty style, Ross still manages to look incredibly cool with the help of a quick beauty trick. Tracee Ellis' Ross' red lipstick is the key to elevating your athleisure looks with ease.

On Dec. 18, the Black-ish actor was photographed out and about in Los Angeles wearing a look that struck the perfect balance between off-duty comfort and on-duty refinement. Her getup consisted of black sweatpants with a tapered hem, a white, oversized hoodie, and chunky hiking boots. But as Ross tends to do, she added some unexpected elegance in the form of an oversized blazer and a swipe of bright-red lipstick that instantly elevated the comfort-leaning outfit with very minimal effort.

The power of a bright-red lip is undeniable (style and beauty icon Coco Chanel was a firm believer, too), but in case you had any doubts, look toward the actor's latest ensemble as proof. The cheery hue makes even the most laid back of outfits look inherently chic.


If you're ready to make like Ross and add a bit of excitement to your next off-duty look, why not opt for a bold red lip? Follow the actor's lead and get dressed up with little to no effort with some color on your pout.
