Is Orange & Black Katie Holmes’s New Signature Color Combo? 

It’s no secret that Katie Holmes is in the Halloween spirit. Not only has she been posting pictures of pumpkins on Instagram, but she also just stepped out in a black and orange outfit for the second time in a week.

First, she hit the streets of New York in an orange blazer with black accessories (seen here). But this time around, she really upped the ante.

The 40-year-old Dawson’s Creek alum arrived at the American Ballet Theater’s Fall Gala in New York accompanied by her mother, Kathleen, last night. Holmes selected an orange silk dress, a lighter orange long trench coat, and black pointed-toe heels for the occasion, leading us to wonder if this is her new signature color combo.

Very autumnal, no?

Holmes is wearing the Rosetta Getty signature slip dress in tangerine ($890). Since the dress is selling out fast, we found two similar options to help you recreate the look: the Galvan Eve dress ($1,695) and a butterscotch hued Kendall + Kylie satin dress ($89). Holmes topped her slinky frock with a burnt orange Altuzarra Alton trench coat which has since sold out (the Leith dot soft trench coat, $53, looks kinda similar). She completed the look with black pointed-toe textured sling-back kitten heels and Turner and Tatler jewels. Although the designer of her shoes aren’t clear, the black Sam Edelman Ludlow slingback pumps ($83) fit the bill.

Holmes rocked her long straight hair extensions in a side part and kept her makeup minimal.

Thanks to Holmes, now we know you can wear orange and black without looking like a jack-o’-lantern.
