Ahh... spring in New York. It’s debatably the best season for spotting your favorite A-lister out and about in an effortlessly chic look. This week alone, ever since 60-degree weather became the norm in the Big Apple, longtime New Yorkers like Jennifer Lawrence, Emily Ratajkowski, Jennifer Lopez, and more have all been snapped by the paparazzi dressed in a slew of spring-ready ensembles. And now, Katie Holmes is the latest Chelsea-based fashion muse to deliver a healthy dose of seasonal style inspo. On April 17, Holmes styled a pastel-heavy outfit complete with a classic button-down and trousers while running errands in SoHo.

On Wednesday, the day before her daughter Suri Cruise’s 18th birthday, Holmes spent the sunny afternoon picking up some last-minute supplies for her only child’s special day. While hopping in and out of boutiques, the Dawson’s Creek alum allowed photographers a close-up shot of her OOTD, which started with a baby blue button-down tucked into ivory wide-leg trousers from Banana Republic. Her carry-all of the day was a black leather hobo bag from Saint Laurent that coordinated to her summery Birkenstock sandals, a more relaxed shoe option as opposed to her go-to ballet flats. Holmes rounded out her off-duty look with minimal accessories — only a few gold necklaces in varying lengths and sleek oval-shaped sunglasses.


That same day in Downtown Manhattan, the birthday girl was also photographed out on the town, in numbers inspired by her mom’s signature aesthetic. Cruise looked ultra-cool in a laidback denim on denim moment, which featured a dark-wash jacket on top and matching straight-leg jeans on the bottom. Unlike Holmes’ latest look, Cruise layered up with a navy blue sweatshirt underneath her denim topper. The 18-year-old gave her final ‘fit a country-ified feel by choosing brown cowboy boots as her footwear of the day.
