It's time to start thinking about expanding your collection of full-proof looks that'll get you through the coldest months of the year. No matter the season there comes a point when you simply run out of ideas, and whether you've already reached that moment and need a refresh or are just thinking ahead, you'll want to bookmark this unexpected winter outfit formula that's been Katie Holmes approved.
The actress, whose personal style went viral earlier this year after that Khaite cardigan moment, is serving up yet another look that will make getting dressed this winter so much easier. While heading to the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball show at Madison Square Garden, Holmes was snapped looking effortlessly chic in a three-piece outfit combination that you can wear over and over again this season: a plush coat, a long leather short, and knee-high boots.
Her camel Max Mara Teddy Bear Icon Coat, $3,690, has clearly become a favorite in her rotation, and for good reason, too. A neutral-hued, furry style like Holmes' will bring a luxe touch to any look. Meanwhile, the marriage of her zebra-print Khaite boots, $1,800, to Frame's black leather culotte, $825, is not only incredibly chic, but practical, as it'll keep the chill off your legs. Plus, this pairing provides for a fresh way to style your knee-skimming boots this season.
In addition to these pieces working so well together, Holmes has also already proved how versatile her topper and boots can be; she's been photographed wearing them both with completely different outfits. And while the coat may be easier to picture working over everything from a jeans-and-sweater look to a cocktail dress, the boots for some could seem a little trickier to style. Don't let the bold pattern scare you, the style's neutral color palette and sleek silhouette will allow them to play well with others — just take a look at how the actress matched them up with a floor-grazing slip dress this fall.
