Okay, Katie Holmes, we see you. If you’re not already clued into Holmes’s style glow-up (as the kids say), here’s the lowdown. The actress has been bringing her style A game this season, wearing one incredibly chic outfit after the next. This time is no different, except she wore a tricky denim trend we can’t make up our minds about: heavily distressed jeans. You might have noticed that rips and heavy distressing have taken a back seat to more tailored, trouser-like jeans lately, and we’ve even admitted to putting our ripped pairs on pause for the time being.
But Holmes, being the rising style star that she is, single-handedly made us reconsider our decision. You see, distressed jeans have earned a bad rep over the years for looking sloppy or unpolished, yet Holmes’s look here proves just how elevated they can be when styled correctly. She paired her Khaite jeans with a romantic white blouse and sleek pointed-toe ankle boots.
