I love a Katie Holmes coat moment as much as the next fashion editor, but just like the rest of the world, I’m ready for spring fashion. And Katie just gave us what we want with her perfect Ulla Johnson dress, which she paired with her favorite Common Projects white sneakers. With the days getting longer and the temperatures rising, we’ve been thinking a lot about dress trends here at Who What Wear, and Holmes’ nailed spring’s biggest trend.
If you have any knowledge of Bridgerton, you know that it took place during the Regency era. The dresses at that time were very distinctive and very romantic. Accordingly, designers have been quick to release similarly romantic dresses, with puffed sleeves, empire waistlines, and pretty prints. Holmes’ dress is the 2021 version of that to a T, with its cut-out and midi length.
