The 4 Best Things Katie Holmes Wore During New York Fashion Week

In case it wasn't made clear by her fabulous cashmere bra and cardigan pairing, Kate Holmes is having somewhat of a fashion reawakening. (Perhaps she was inspired by Kate Middleton's style renaissance?) Holmes has been a staple at New York Fashion Week for a long time, but unlike many other runway show attendees, her approach to dressing is wonderfully relatable. Her casual cool personality carries over seamlessly into easy, chic outfits that we absolutely plan to recreate ASAP. Here are four of her best looks from the past seven days to add to your Pinterest board for inspiration in the months to come.

Paper-bag-waist Pants And A Black Top

For the Zimmermann runway show, Holmes opted for a body-skimming black long-sleeve top and baggy paper-bag-waist pants, proving sometimes the simplest outfits really are the best.

Get the look: Halogen top ($39); H&M pants ($35); Sam Edelman boots ($160)

A Cozy Cardigan, Chambray Shirt And Leather Pants

OK, we 100 percent intend to replicate this look from head-to-toe once the temperatures drop a bit lower. Pairing sleek leather pants and matching pointy-toe boots with a chunky knit cardi and easy chambray button-down is the ultimate high-low fall match-up. It's sexy, it's comfy and it's all we want to wear from this moment on.

Get the look: Elie Tahari sweater ($448); Levi's button-down shirt ($45); Blank NYC pants ($98); Rag & Bone boots ($525)

Jean Jacket, Striped Dress And Heeled Flip-flops

We have very mixed feelings about Holmes's choice of footwear here, but even those of us who loathe the high-heeled flip-flop trend have to admit, she looks pretty damn great. The contrast between her oversize denim jacket and sexy slim-fit dress strikes an unexpectedly stylish balance.

Get the look: Topshop jacket ($95); MICHAEL Michael Kors dress ($70); Tory Burch bag ($528); Gianvito Rossi heels ($695)

Knit T-shirt, Jeans And White Kicks

A T-shirt and jeans is pretty much our go-to weekend outfit, but Holmes has upped the ante with her take on the casual ensemble. Swapping a basic cotton tee for a pretty knit version is a super-easy way to dress up a casual outfit without sacrificing any of the comfort.

Get the look: Gucci top ($980); Tory Sport top ($99); Citizens of Humanity jeans ($198); Superga sneakers ($75)
