Katie Holmes' All-Orange Outfit Is Tonal Dressing At Its Finest
Katie Holmes' street-style streak is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. After that cashmere bralette moment catapulted the actor to ultimate fashion influencer status, it seems she's fully assumed said role and has been churning out copy-worthy look after copy-worthy look — and practically every day, at that. In recent weeks, she's especially proven her strength in the realm of fall fashion, with the most recent example being that all-orange outfit Holmes just wore for a night at the ballet.
On Oct. 16, Holmes headed out for an evening of art at the American Ballet Theatre 2019 Fall Gala, a gathering that "features an exhilarating program of new work by leading female choreographers and honors the President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, in recognition of her empowerment of women in leadership roles and dedication to diversity," according to the American Ballet Theatre website.
Holmes looked the epitome of fall time perfection in an all-orange outfit that was like a PSL in fashion form. The base of her evening attire consisted of a silky tangerine-hued slip dress from Rosetta Getty. It fell just above the ankles and features a high-neck and thin straps. Not only does the frock prove the slip dress' staying power, but it also confirms that orange is the It-hue of the season (shocker, right?)
Holmes layered a trench coat, rendered in a slightly darker orange shade, over the silk dress for the perfect tonal look. The slight variation in color and the contrasting texture of the pieces are two key things to keep in mind when trying your hand at tonal dressing.
Not sure what tonal dressing actually is? Essentially, it's dressing in multiple shades of the same color from head-to-toe, just like Holmes did, or wearing the same exact hue from top to bottom.
It's also an ultra-effortless way to look incredibly luxe and put together. There's just something about sporting the same hue from head-to-toe that exudes a certain amount of sartorial confidence that people can't help but admire. That's probably why Holmes' latest outfit is causing some serious chatter among the fashion set.
Holmes topped off her all-orange look with black kitten heel pumps and a black crossbody bag for a bit of a color break. Well done, as per usual, Holmes.
