You may remember Katie Holmes giving rise to plush knits through her viral Khaite bra top moment, 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 clogs from Chloé. Also in off-duty footwear, there’s her Birkenstock 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. Best of all, if there are any items you love — like her easy-to-style ballet flats — you can shop her exact pieces. With all these items in your style arsenal, your outfits will be relaxed and polished, too.

If Holmes declares ballet flats are back in style, it’s best to follow suit as she typically debuts styles before they become a trend. Her pretty blue slip-ons are from Yuni Buffa — and she’s worn them with upscale and casual looks to showcase their versatility.

Holmes toted one of Virginie Viard’s first handbags as Creative Director of Chanel — the '19' Flap Bag in classic black, which features all the brand’s signatures — antique gold, the ‘CC’ turn-lock, and paunchy, quilted calfskin. The style played the perfect complement to all of Holmes’ blue-jean looks, including her aforementioned Ref pants.

Clogs have made a comeback in 2022 and Holmes has shown her adoration for the style over and over again while walking around NYC. Her love for the Chloé shoes is likely tied to their ability to be dressed up or down, as she has styled them with both jeans and a maxi dress.

Holmes has stepped out in the wide-leg, high-rise trouser time after time, be it midwinter or a balmy summer day. Its roomy, breathable fit is primed for year-round wear. Try with a tee and jeans for warm-weather months, and tie in transitional pieces for fall once the temperature turns.

Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals are a celeb favorite for their low-key comfort and now come in dozens of iterations from the brand (as well as similar silhouettes from other brands). Holmes’ pair happens to retail for a bit more than the standard pair, boasting an inky black leather that’s great for pairing with dresses or sweaters.

Holmes’ It pair of sunglasses are all about practicality. She’s been donning old-school cat eye sunnies from Prada forever, which can easily be styled through every season.
