Katie Holmes Just Wore the Cardigan-and-Jeans Uniform I Can't Wait to Copy

Leave it to Katie Holmes—the actress who single-handedly blew up the internet when she wore a cashmere cardigan–and-bralette duo from Khaite with vintage denim back in 2019—to debut the finest knit-and-jeans combo of the year thus far. On Monday, Holmes was spotted in New York City wearing what can only be described as my ideal fall look: a white T-shirt, Western boots, a cashmere cardigan and a pair of high-rise jeans that fit just right. Like so many of the Dawson's Creek alum's outfits, the look was casual and elevated at the same time, which I can tell you from experience is easier said than done. 

The real winners from Holmes's outfit are her jeans (which are mid-wash and straight-leg) and her cardigan (a pink-and-gray knit by Kate Spade New York that is somehow still in stock). Called the Colorblock Cashmere Gallery Cardigan, the two-tone sweater costs £295 and comes in a total of five colourways, ranging from red-and-pink to cream-and-white. In other words, there's one for every mood during sweater season.
