5 Katie Holmes Outfits to Copy ASAP

Whether you’re someone who loves to copy celebrity outfits or not, it’s hard not to be drawn to Katie Holmes’ style. Beyond just the red carpet or sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week, it’s the actress’s average-day, errand-running ensembles that often call for the most attention.

Holmes is the New Yorker who appreciate an all-black look, but one that intrigues with a mix of textures. She’s a busy working mother who loves denim but makes even the simplest jeans feel elevated and cool. And though she has impeccable taste, her classic and elegant style isn’t one that’s contingent on a hefty clothing budget.

In fact, her look can be replicated with a wardrobe composed of only pieces priced at under $250; most can be assembled for well under that. Ahead, shop 15 of the Holmes essentials on a wallet-friendly budget.

It’s the small details that make this all-black look pop: the fluffy feathers of her coat pockets, the buttery leather of her pants and the peek-a-boo plastic on her pumps.
