While running errands in NYC, Katie Holmes swapped her leather pants and Isabel Marant bow pumps for a cozy-chic style that's perfect for Fall. In lieu of a jacket, the actress worked a few layered knits — gray White + Warren poncho and ribbed red long-sleeve — with distressed denim and black motorcycle boots. Re-create Katie's low-key look by pairing a red, long-sleeved top and thick gray knit with distressed jeans and black moto boots. Just remember to choose a fitted bottom layer to keep your bundled outfit from looking bulky.
Spring's head-to-toe denim trend will still be going strong well into the summer months with pieces like Hannah MacGibbon's denim triangle bikini for Chloé and Alber Elbaz's pom-pom sandals for Lanvin hitting stores in the coming weeks. Miu Miu has our favorite back-to-the-'80s chain-strap handbag, while Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana do distressed denim just right for D&G.
Our favorite trends of the year revolve around two body parts, while one can be splattered anywhere on the body. Intrigued? Legs got a lot of attention with the emergence of sexy over-the-knee boots, denim's distressed revenge, and the reemergence of leggings. Meanwhile, shoulder love continued to flourish via shoulder pads and sharp outerwear — specifically, the Michael Jackson-esque drummer jacket. Lastly, studs continue to deliver edge and sass to clothing, shoes, and bags.
