Designer Focus: Tracy Reese

Known for her feminine style and use of bold, graphic patterns, Reese is a favorite of celebrities and everyday women everywhere. Still need convincing? Even our fabulously stylish First Lady Michelle Obama is a fan – so much so that she wore a Tracy Reese dress to the Democratic National Convention.

Fashion shouldn’t be fussy, and Tracy Reese takes that to heart with her sophisticated yet relaxed design choices that incorporate both retro and bohemian influences. A collection characterized by throw-on-and-go dresses and easy, mix-and-match separates offers a comfortable, yet stylish appearance designed to fit the lifestyles of everyday women. Reese is best known for creating dresses that are both modern and feminine thanks to a combination of ladylike silhouettes and bold graphic patterns.

You can incorporate Reese’s colorful design aesthetic into your own home, so long as you’re not shy about using pops of color and bold prints in accent pieces. Bright splashes of color can brighten up any space and turn an otherwise neutral interior into an eye-catching display. Ready to take the plunge? These bright, colorful Coptic Square Pillows feature jewel tones in a distinctive bold pattern, making them the perfect accent piece for a neutral sofa, chair, or other background.

Reese’s collection isn’t limited solely to figure-flattering clothing. Her line also extends to other areas, including housewares, accent pieces, and accessories. And lucky for those of us not working with a celeb-size budget, affordability also plays a part in Reese’s collection, notably in recent collaborations with retailers like Target.

Don’t worry of you weren’t up at the crack of dawn to scoop up Reese’s contributions to the recent CFDA-sponsored Target-Neiman Marcus collaboration. You can still get in on the dinnerware action with these bold, patterned Splendida Dinner Plates that add a splash of color to any dinner table and make even weeknight dinners exciting.
