WWD reports that Tracee Ellis Ross, the Black-ish actress teamed up with JC Penney for a limited-edition holiday capsule collection that’s both accessible and inclusive for all budgets and body types. Though Ross has always loved fashion, this marks her first foray into design.
The 45-piece collection—which includes women’s apparel, accessories, and home decor—ranges in price from $9 – $75 and sizes small to 3X. According to the first looks shared by Ross on Instagram, the collection includes an array of pieces like black tuxedo suits, velvet dresses, sequin dresses, and a major red robe coat that we all need.
In an interview with WWD, Ross explained the importance of designing a collection that catered to all women. “Feeling great and looking great should be accessible to everyone and should be affordable,” she said. “It doesn’t have to cost a lot to look incredible. It was very important to me to have considered a diverse group of women.”
JCPenney doesn’t typically collaborate with celebrities on collections, but they’ve been inching towards a fashion-forward revamp for quite some time now. In the past year, the store has debuted a Project Runway partnership and amped up its Sephora in-shop stores. But with Ross‘ star power and a capsule collection that’s equal parts chic and affordable, this may just be the fashionable comeback the store has been searching for all along.
