How Katie Holmes Became the Must-See Street Style Star in 2020

Even with no where to go, Katie Holmes managed to look stylish on a daily basis in 2020. Day after day the actress stepped out in New York wearing outfits that looked effortlessly cool, comfortable and chic all at the same time, which is why she is the must-see street style star of the year.

With no red carpet in sight, Holmes still found a way to make a statement with her clothing that inspired us all to want to get dressed and leave the house. For one, she mastered the mom fashion. Whoever said the relaxed look wasn’t cool was proved wrong by Holmes this year time and time again.

She wore many different denim looks, including this high-waisted silhouette in August, paired with Birkenstock Arizona sandals and a plaid top.

Holmes’ shoe style also made waves this year as she continually stuck with the most popular trend of wearing comfortable flats and sneakers.

Standout brands included Staud x New Balance, Acne Studios and Common Projects. The latter has a been go-to sneaker throughout 2020 for the “Dawson’s Creek” star. Holmes sported the all-white Common Projects leather lace-ups as part of one of her best looks of the year, for instance. Remember that sweatpants and blazer ensemble, which she wore in September.

Holmes paired the shoes with cream sweatpants that showed off her socks and a checkered blazer from Frame and a white tee. This outfit cemented Holmes’ street style stardom.

When she wasn’t in sneakers, however, Holmes was a fan of Oxfords, loafers and mules. She wore one pair of all-white Oxford shoes on many occasions, including in July when she paired the style with an embroidered crop top with puff sleeves from Ulla Johnson.
