Katie Holmes Brings Back ’00s Style in Bootcut Jeans & Elastic-Back Flats

Katie Holmes is making a case for aughts fashion.

The 40-year-old hit the streets of New York yesterday wearing an outfit that felt like it had been plucked straight out of her ’00s wardrobe.

On top, Holmes went with a red blouse that had puff sleeves and a high neckline. She teamed it with medium-wash bootcut jeans.

For footwear, the “Dawson’s Creek” star opted for black leather flats with a pointed silhouette and an elastic back.

When it comes to off-duty fashion, Holmes tends to go with more affordable shoe styles, favoring comfy footwear from brands like Ugg, Adidas and Converse. She often twins with her 13-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise.

On the red carpet, however, luxury wares are her go-to. At the 2019 Met Gala this month, the “Jack and Jill” actress stepped out in style alongside designer Zac Posen. She wore a purple dress with a halter-style neckline by the designer. Her shoes — a pair of Jimmy Choo heels — were not visible underneath the floor-length gown.
