Katie Holmes Wore the Single-Most Impactful Jacket Trend of the Year So Far

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.

The washed effect on this leather jacket is too good to pass up.

Don't wait until this jacket hits wait-list status rather than available. 

This oversize option is perfect for wearing with a hoodie layered underneath.

Am I the only person getting excited by the number of pockets featured on this Sam Edelman option?

I've been dreaming (and daydreaming) about this perfectly vintaged leather jacket. 

The things I would give up to see this jacket in my closet each and every day… The list is, well, endless.

If oversize silhouettes are your thing, I'd say go for this one. 

This jacket lives rent-free in my brain at all hours of the day while I'm awake and asleep. 

Leave it to Aritzia to make the perfect option. 

Yep, this is from Amazon. Nope, I would've never guessed either. 

This distressed take on the trend is selling out fast. Get it before it's too late. 

But actually, my dad has a jacket just like this that I recently stole. 

You can always count on Zara to just get it.
