In 2019, Katie Holmes proved herself as one of the year’s most unexpected style stars. Whether she was spotted hailing a taxi in a cashmere bra and cardigan set (that promptly went viral), or showed up to a glitzy cocktail reception in her favorite Wardrobe.NYC black coat, the actor managed to make even the most luxurious outfit feel accessible and effortless.
We’re only six weeks into 2020, but it seems Holmes’s winning style streak is showing no signs of stopping. After kicking off her New York fashion week by attending a dinner for the Australian contemporary label Zimmerman last Thursday (wearing a very groovy, ’70s-inspired ensemble that looked straight out of Boogie Nights, no less), she made an appearance at the label’s runway show today in a more casual look, albeit with a smart, NYFW-appropriate twist.
It wasn’t just the combination of wardrobe staples—camel-colored trench coat, tailored black blazer, white pussy-bow blouse—that stood out. The real winning piece? That would be Holmes’s statement jean: a loose, boyfriend style with a crisp pleat down the center for an extra touch of formality. In this way, Holmes showed how to take an everyday piece and make it feel instantly front row-ready.
