Look For Less: Katie Holmes’ Effortless Street Style
Katie Holmes is one of the coolest moms we
know wish we knew. Katie’s been on the scene for a while (we’ll be the first to admit that we still miss Dawson’s Creek) and not once has she ever looked overdone. With the recent rise of the decluttering movement and accompanying capsule wardrobe, we’re feeling super inspired by Katie’s oh-so-easy looks. What makes this fashion ethos even more appealing? It’s totally attainable. Here’s how to get Katie’s looks:
1. Button-Down + Circle Skirt: Copy this outfit for a picnic or a casual brunch date. Start with an A-line skirt in a lightweight cotton-linen blend that hits right above the knee. Style with a gingham button-down—consider sizing up so you have enough fabric to knot the shirt at your waist. Don’t forget to push up your sleeves!
Want your mini-me to match? Thankfully, there are so many girls’ A-line skirts to choose from at thredUP. Select one in a similar color to yours and pair with an easy tee or tank. Add sparkly ballet flats for extra style points.
2. Perfect T-Shirt + Wide-Leg Denim + Vintage-Inspired Bag: Do not, we repeat, do not, be afraid of wide-leg denim. You can pull this off; it’s flattering on everyone. Start with a not-too-loose, not-too-tight, classic T-shirt. Vince makes great high-quality ones that fit perfectly. Check out thredUP’s Denim Shop, where you’ll quickly find a pair of wide-leg jeans in your size and price range. Look for a super versatile medium-blue wash (not too dark, not too light)—it’s a closet staple you’ll wear again and again. Finish off your look with a statement-making handbag.
3. Striped Top + White Jeans: This is uniform dressing at its best. Make another quick stop at our Denim Shop to grab a pair of chic white skinnies. Add a classic striped top to your cart, and that’s it. Effortless, right? (That’s why we love this outfit so much.)
