Katie Holmes Wore Trendy $150 Flats With the Dress Style Every New Yorker Owns

I don't know that any other NYC-based celebrity has the New Yorker vibe quite as authentically as Katie Holmes does. Her wardrobe blends right in with the rest of the chic, busy citizens of New York. She walks a lot, as one does when they live in the city, and she has a wardrobe that reflects that.

It suddenly feels like summer on the East Coast, and Holmes was photographed this week wearing the quintessential dress for summer in NYC: a black slip dress. As you know, New Yorkers wear black a lot, so a slip dress allows them to continue to do so without overheating. It's the most lightweight dress style, and it looks elegant with zero effort. Holmes gave the LBD a trendy spin by pairing it with Mary Jane flats, specifically $150 blue velvet flats by Vibi Venezia.

With that, keep scrolling to shop the exact shoes and a few black slip dresses that have New Yorker written all over them.
