Katie Holmes Just Wore the Cardigan-and-Jeans Uniform I Can’t Wait to Copy

Leave it to Katie Holmes—the actress that singlehandedly blew up the internet when she wore a cashmere-cardigan–and-bralette duo from Khaite with vintage denim back in 2019—to debut the finest knit-and-jeans combo of the year thus far. On Monday, Holmes was spotted in New York City wearing what can only be described as my ideal fall look: a white T-shirt, Western boots, a cashmere cardigan, and a pair of high-rise jeans that fit just right. Like so many of the Dawson’s Creek alum’s outfits, the look was casual and elevated at the same time, which, I can tell you from experience, is easier said than done. 

The real winners from Holmes’s outfit are her jeans (which are mid-wash and straight-legged) and her cardigan (a pink-and-gray knit by Kate Spade New York that is somehow still in stock). Called the Colorblock Cashmere Gallery Cardigan, the two-tone sweater costs $328 and comes in a total of five colourways, ranging from red-and-pink to cream-and-white. In other words, there’s one for every mood during sweater season.

Keep scrolling to shop Holmes’s cardigan while you still can. And while you’re at it, find everything you need to copy her enviable sweater-and-jeans ensemble. 

On Katie Holmes: Kate Spade New York Colorblock Cashmere Gallery Cardigan (£295)

The cardigan that started it all.

These look like they cost way more than £25.

I actually own this one and can say with 100% certainty that it’s amazing.

This is my ideal jeans shape. 

This colour is so luxe.

A true classic.

This style of set was kicked off by Holmes herself.

Did I just find the ultimate pair of mom jeans? Yes, indeed I did.
