Katie Holmes' Capsule Wardrobe Includes These 6 Pieces


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, Katie Holmes' capsule wardrobe is as versatile and as luxe as you'd expect, with a few looks that are actually on-sale right now.

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. Of the most surprising finds is Holmes' wear-everywhere jeans, which are currently half-off at Reformation in its rare annual sale.
