New York Fashion Week: Monday's Picks - Black Enterprise
Black Enterprise Magazine January-March 2019 Issue

Tracy Reese


This designer, one of the top African American designers (or top designers, period) in the fashion industry today, had some interesting pieces this year. I especially like the pinstriped pants and oxford shoe this model is wearing.






I love how this shift could go from the office to cocktail hour. And the incorporation of the hipster glasses actually doesn’t hurt. I would not recommend wearing the gloves and fur inside the office, but paired with a nice single-breasted coat, you’d def. be arriving at the office looking fabulous.





The cut of this coat and dress are really what sparked my attention. I am not necessarily a fan of the two patterns together, however this is a prime example of how a flowy dress can be incorporated into office wear by pairing it with a long, men’s-cut coat or blazer.
