Hey Bomb readers,
ATL Blogger 'Necole' wrote me the following:
"I love the style of Joan Clayton from Girlfriends. I was wondering if you could or if you have done a segment on her style and where I can get some of the looks?"
Great request. Joan Clayton from Girlfriends obviously has great style...but I think that Tracee Ellis Ross, the actor who plays Joan..
...looks just as smashing in real life.
I'm going to take a look at her fashion choices for this week's Style File.
Tracee's style is sophisticated in an all inclusive way. She wears everything from patterned silk tops with traditional high waisted pencil skirts...
...to demure solid colored dresses in wool, silk, or satin...
It seems, though that Tracee feels most comfortable in patterned dresses...
....accented with wide belts and bright clutches.

Fashion Gossip and WhatNots:
