You may remember Katie Holmes giving rise to plush knits through her viral Khaite bra top moment (which came long before quarantine would necessitate cozy staples), but the actor-turned-fashion girl has always been a trendsetter. Going back to her Dawson's Creek days, fans have honed in on Holmes' relaxed, yet polished ensembles — most of which involve a few key pieces that never leave her person, regardless of season or occasion. These days, Holmes' capsule wardrobe is as versatile and as luxe as you'd expect.
Holmes tends to stick to a classic sensibility: a fitted white tee, relaxed jeans, and perhaps a slick trench to top it off. She also mixes luxe accessories with everyday basics. There are her timeless Chanel flap-bags (with turn-locking and quilted calfskin in tow), along with easy, low-profile tennis shoes from cult-loved footwear brand, Common Projects. Also in off-duty footwear, there's her Birkinstock Arizona sandals, which she keeps in rotation from May to September. If you're looking to try out Holmes' signature look, continue ahead for all her most-rotated pieces.
