We've Found Every Item You Need to Re-Create Katie Holmes's Wardrobe

Celebrity style obsessions come and go, but some seem to last forever. In the days of Dawson's Creek, Joey Potter's (aka Katie Holmes's) love for denim never failed to inspire us. Now, 18 years on, Katie has definitely found her fashion mojo. She hadn't ever lost it, but this time, it's extra good.

Of course, A-listers go in and out of the limelight as they, well, get on with their lives, but Katie has become one of the most photographed celebrities of late, even in the midst of lockdown. Her resurgence was confirmed when she stepped out in one particular outfit back in 2019—her now-iconic Khaite cashmere bra-and-cardigan combo. This may not sound like a thing, but believe us. She made it one, and the look instantly went viral.

Katie is very much a part of the luxury fashion world—in particular, supporting the New York–based label Khaite—but she is also a fan of a high-street hunt. She's known for tracking down the very best pieces in Mango, and she's certainly no stranger to Zara's shoe department.

All her outfits look as if they've been perfectly tailored to her (let's face it; they probably have been), and while she still hasn't gotten rid of the pretty frocks, she's opted for more daring fabrics like leather and form-fitting silhouettes. Creating combinations our wardrobes desire, we can thank Katie for creating the perfect capsule, from cardigans and denim jackets to floral maxi dresses and ankle boots. Scroll down to shop our favourite Katie Holmes looks.
