More than almost any other celebrity, Katie Holmes has mastered dressing in a way that's both inspirational and attainable at the same time. Sure, her Khaite cardigan wasn't in the budget for the masses, but soon enough, there were plenty of low-price alternatives that made it easy to get her look. The same goes for her latest ensemble. While out getting a to-go coffee in New York City, the actor and director was spotted wearing dark-wash jeans, her favorite Chloé sneakers, and arguably the most impactful jacket trend of the year—at least, it will be now that Holmes has worn it. 

The jacket in question is a dark-brown, slightly weathered leather bomber jacket similar to the ones I always imagine every dad on the planet owns at least one of. Hers is from Mango's premium line Selection, and sadly, it's already sold out. But there's no need to fret. While we wait for her exact outerwear to be restocked (I'm manifesting here), there are plenty of other just-as-cool options for us to shop to master Holmes's look. Below, find 21 leather bomber jackets that I'm personally considering adding to my wardrobe before they, like Mango's take, sell out. I suggest you do the same.
