Katie Holmes Wore Jeans and Gucci Ankle Boots for Her 40th-Birthday Dinner

Happy birthday, Katie Holmes! The actress just turned 40 years old. To celebrate, Holmes went out for a low-key dinner in New York City wearing a laid-back yet stylish outfit: a simple gray tee and jeans with a colorful sweater coat and designer accessories, including Gucci Leather Mid-Heel Ankle Boots ($1690) and the Fendi Peekaboo Essential Black and Beige Leather Handbag ($5400).

While you almost certainly don't need thousands of dollars of designer accessories, you can still emulate the way Holmes dressed up the classic tee-and-jeans combo. Plus, if the weather cooperates, a fun sweater-coat hybrid is a fresh alternative to your go-to black wool coat. Scroll down to see what Holmes wore to her 40th birthday dinner and shop the look for yourself.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Associate Director, Fashion News

I got my start as a Who What Wear intern eleven years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (We've since increased that number twentyfold.) I graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how I ended up moving to Los Angeles from my hometown of San Diego. In college, I also interned at Refinery29, where I was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, I came back to WWW in 2016, where I currently hold the title of Associate Director, Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royals expert—in case you haven't noticed my numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). I spend my days trying to incorporate my idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, I love tennis, dogs, classic rock, and traveling.
