We been documenting Katie Holmes’ looks for some time now. Ever since she wowed everyone with that cardigan-and-bra Khaite set, we’ve been tracking her casual out-and-about outfits. Most often, she likes to wear jeans and tee, with loafers or a smart coat when the the weather is cooler, and with Birkenstocks when it’s summer. But this week, we spotted the actress had ditched her trusty denim in favour of something more fashion forward for 2021: pleated trousers.
The look, which I’d argue originated with The Row, has transformed from stuffy suit styling to casual coffee-run chic. Holmes paired her dusty pink versions with a pair of Gucci loafers and a white shirt, which is an ideal summer outfit if we ever saw one (so much loose material is great on a hot day). The good news is that it’s not just high-end designers who stock these trousers right now but also more affordable brands too, which is proof that a trend has really taken off.
