It's not like Katie Holmes didn't look good before, but—and I won't be the first one to say this—she has seriously turned her fashion game up in recent years. Whether it's literally walking down the street in New York wearing a pair of skinny leather trousers and a cable knit jumper or ramping up the sass factor in a Saint Laurent minidress and polka-dot tights, she has wowed in the style stakes at every opportunity. And it was only recently she made a case for the dress over jeans Y2K look, and love it or hate it, Katie Holmes is definitely being experimental when it comes to her outfits.
However, it's not all bodycon dresses and skintight pants, she's also stayed true to her classic style. One outfit she's recently been spotted in was a pair of baggy blue jeans, a vest top and a slouchy cardigan. This leads me to the obvious conclusion that she has nailed the winter capsule wardrobe. Not only does it include cold-weather staples such as great knitwear, but she's also got her party looks wrapped up, too.

1. VEST TOP + CARDIGAN + BAGGY JEANS
Style Notes: The Queen of off-duty style, Katie knows the power of brilliant basics. Tapping into the baggy jean and ballet flat trends, this look with the slouchy cardigan is one you can wear on repeat across all seasons. Add a wool coat and fluffy hat for extra warmth during the cold snap.
2. LEATHER TROUSERS + BLACK BOOTS + CABLE KNIT JUMPER
Style Notes: Katie has clearly twigged that leather is one of the biggest trends for this season and beyond. The great news is that these trousers will last year after year and always look chic, especially when paired with a timeless sweater.
3. BLACK MINIDRESS + POLKA-DOT TIGHTS
Style Notes: One word: wow. This Saint Laurent dress looks like it was made for Katie. Paired with red lipstick and black polka-dot tights, it's the kind of night out you can easily copy.
Style Notes: Navy coats never go out of style. Neither do grey roll-necks, flat black boots or straight-leg blue jeans, actually. So really, Katie has nailed all the classics here.
