Katie Holmes Wore the Simple Trouser-and-Shirt Combo Every Fashion Editor Relies on

In my opinion, Katie Holmes’s style really shines when she leads with pieces that look and feel comfortable and relaxed. With an effortless air and a strong taste levels, the actor’s errand-running, off-duty looks trump her red carpet successes in my book. Speaking to her innate ability to hone a chic ensemble, Holmes took to the streets of New York this week wearing a simple two-part outfit that looked both unbothered and elevated.

Selecting a sky blue shirt and wide-leg, light cream trousers—both of which been cropping up all over the market recently—Holmes constructed a fresh, spring-ready look that played into her naturally laid-back energy.

Opting for a chunky sandal with a buckle detail, she was able to steer her look away from feeling too heavy. Styling summer staples, the she accessoried her outfit with dainty gold necklaces, tortoise frame sunglasses and a slouchy leather shoulder bag.

Whilst Holmes’s blue and cream colour combination might not jump out to you as a major one to know this season, it’s one that’s quietly everywhere. Pale blue was one of the biggest colour trends to come from the spring/summer 2024 runways. Appearing in collections including Stella McCartney and Fendi, the light blue shade was styled on repeat with soft cream colours and bright white shades.
