Katie Holmes's Winter Outfits All Revolve Around These 5 Basics

For most of us, winter is about sensible investments. Excluding a handful of Christmas parties, this isn't a time to experiment with bold trends or anything impractical. Winter items need to be about quality and reliability, and so this means many of us tend to lean on classics that you can wear for decades. Katie Holmes is the best example of the benefits of assembling a timeless winter capsule wardrobe, as in New York this month she has been sticking to an arsenal of simple but elevated items.

She has quite a minimal aesthetic when it comes to winter dressing and sticks to a neutral colour palette with camel, mushroom, grey and navy, and has been playing with proportions with oversized coats and chunky knitwear. Keep scrolling to see and shop the five winter items that Katie Holmes has been living in this month.
