A small caveat before I dive into how much I'm loving Katie Holmes's style right now: I love Dawson's Creek. It's still one of the shows I rewatch the most. I will always stand my ground that Joey Potter and Pacey Witter's love story was one of the greatest ever. Basically, what I'm saying is that this isn't necessarily an objective review of her style. But despite my bias, I'm convinced that Katie Holmes has got her style mojo back. Now, that's not to say she's ever been a bad dresser, but rather that she's just taken it up a notch. As a taller woman, she's had a tendency to play it safe with pretty dresses and, at times, pieces that didn't maximise her fabulous figure.
Not any more. Now Katie, 38, is mixing it up a little by wearing more trend-led outfits such as gold trousers with biker jackets, cheeky lace dresses and denim overalls. All her outfits look like they were perfectly tailored to her, and while she still hasn't gotten rid of the pretty frocks, she's opted for more daring fabrics and form-fitting silhouettes. Keep scrolling to see my favourite looks on Katie right now.
Style Notes: At the Ralph Lauren show during New York Fashion Week, Katie wore gold trousers, a white tee and a worn brown biker jacket. Have you ever seen such a perfect outfit?
Style Notes: Another NYFW look, the actress looked incredible in this lacy dress when attending the Lanyu fashion show.
Style Notes: Wearing a creation by her longtime friend designer Zac Posen, this is a more sheer dress we never expected to see on Katie, but we love it.
Style Notes: From the colour to the fit, this Zac Posen gown is a total win for Katie.
Style Notes: Even Katie isn't immune to the power of Gucci. Here she wears a jumpsuit with a pair of the hottest sneakers around right now.
Style Notes: You can't ever go wrong with the little black dress. Hats off to Katie for keeping it simple but still super chic.
Style Notes: This is the kind of outfit we'd expect to see on the likes of Caroline de Maigret. Katie goes for a casual denim jumpsuit, but she makes it look incredible with the addition of a pair of black court shoes and Isabel Marant–style grey blazer.
