Katie Holmes’ latest look proves that one of 2020’s biggest trends may be sticking around for a while.

Making a shopping trip out in New York this afternoon, the “Batman Begins” actress showed off her chic seasonal style as she held tight to her Khaite items. Her ensemble included a mix of layered pieces starting with a ruffled boyfriend-style shirt layered under an off-white jacket and coordinating straight-leg jeans.

The real kicker of her look came with her choice of outerwear. A sleek piece of leather attire has become one of the biggest trends this fall — and now this winter, too. Whether in the form of pants, leggings or, in Holmes’ case, a coat, the effortlessly cool material offers an easy way to add a glam yet edgy touch to all looks, as exemplified by the likes of Kristin Cavallari, Kendall Jenner, Zoe Kravitz and more.

To counter the edgier outerwear, Holmes herself opted for her go-to sneakers courtesy of Common Projects.

The pair with its exposed stitches and layered panels creates an easy-to-pair appeal, matchable to any ensemble as Holmes has proved time and time again. The Original Achilles silhouette showcases white uppers with a white rubber sole and finished with a foil-stamped factory ID on the heel. The sneakers retail for $425 and are available at Nordstrom.com.

When it comes to her chic style, the star of “The Secret” movie oftentimes favors on-trend silhouettes that are just as stylish as her outfit of choice. The 42-year-old is known for her top-of-the-line style, matching her go-to fall combo — relaxed pants, an oversize coat and a casual top —with everything from Veja sneakers to Common Projects kicks and flare-heel Dorateymur boots. As the weather heats up, though, you can find the actress in flowy dresses, more lightweight tops and a rotation of easy-going pieces like trending black “ugly” double-strap sandals.

Beyond off-duty style and impeccable footwear taste, Katie Holmes’ experience in the fashion industry earned her the title of an Olay brand ambassador; she also previously served as the face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Miu Miu, Ann Taylor and more top brands throughout her successful career.
