She may put on the ritz for the red carpet, but when it comes to daytime dressing, Katie Holmes is all about building blocks.
As a guest editor on WhoWhatWear.com, the star highlights her must-haves for fall, including a cropped blazer from her own line, Holmes & Yang. “It has a great fit and goes with my jeans or over an evening dress,” she says. And though the stylish topper has a hefty price tag of $2,125, Holmes insists it’s a worthy investment: “I wear it about four times a week.”
But while the designer’s outerwear is aspirational, other favorites include a $98 cable knit sweater from J.Crew, which Holmes can’t wait to pair with pleated maxis, and $110 “Tivoli” plaid boots from Sorel. “I hope to be caught in some great snowstorms in these boots,” she tells the style site. “A feminine design for such a practical shoe.”
The final piece to her fail-proof look? A pair of $189 7 for all Mankind “Swiss-Dot” bootlegs. “I love the way these jeans fit,” she says. “They are a great go-to.”
