There's a whole new set of styling variables post-Thanksgiving feast to contend with, and they have everything to do with staying cozy, looking (and feeling) chic, and dressing for shopping season functionality. It sounds a lot more intense than it is, but what we're aiming for looks a lot like what Katie Holmes is wearing front and center. We love the relaxed proportions here, plus, how can you not be comfortable in a gray henley shirt and long maxi skirt? The key to not letting these layers overtake your form is this: try to keep your top a little more formfitting, or style it with a closer-cut jacket. If it's seriously cold where you live, add a shearling fur vest and mid-length peacoat for extra warmth. Other than that, classic accessories à la Katie are an easy way to polish the laid-back look. Thus, throw in a sleek black shopper bag (perfect for all those holiday gift lists you've made), black boots, and a wool-knit scarf, and you've got your final touches for a weekend-ready ensemble. Shop our key picks below, and happy Black Friday!
