There's nothing sexier than keeping it simple and Tracee Ellis Ross is living proof of this fact. Our good sis has been turning heads and breaking necks with her sleek and chic style for decades, and as she approaches her 48th birthday, it's clear that Tracee doesn't plan on letting up anytime soon.

According to Tracee, while her style has been carefully crafted to fit her unique personality, she can't help but think she got it from her mama:

"Mom gave me an innate love of glamour. My mom [Diana Ross] was extremely glamorous at home, not just on the stage. That's probably why I never go out in full sweats. During my childhood, she would only wear tracksuits if they were fancy and with high heels."
"It fed into a persona I put on to cover my insecurities. It was a way to present an identity – if I wore a great outfit, I could conquer the world. When I was a toddler, I'd wrap myself in a bedsheet, wear Mom's heels and become a queen. Now, clothing is a form of creative expression."

Although Tracee has made a mark on the entertainment industry as an actress, red carpet moments and NYFW cameos have slowly but surely made her one of our favorite fashionistas in the game, and one of her most recent fits to grace the 'gram is no exception.

Rocking a two-piece pant set by Mary Kate and Ashley's brand The Row, accompanied by a Gucci purse and Nike trainers, Tracee proved that monochromatic fashion isn't just a trending style of the summer, issa look all damn year.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
