I might be writing this under the dreary, gray sky for which London is famed, but Katie Holmes' latest ensemble (opens in new tab) has almost convinced me to march outside in a midi dress and sandals and simply employ the power of positive thinking to convince myself I'm not freezing. Holmes, on a much more pleasant day in New York City, headed out in a black and white gingham midi by Kate Spade this week—and, as ever, looked incredibly cool. See the photos over at Vogue.

Holmes accessorized her floaty midi dress with heeled sandals featuring metal hardware, layered pendant necklaces, and vintage-inspired brown sunglasses. Over her shoulder, she carried a white leather Kate Spade saddle bag. And, happily, both dress and bag are still available to shop:
While Holmes has long had impeccable style, her status as a fashion icon really took off following her 2012 move to New York City, after her divorce from Tom Cruise (do you really need reminding of that cashmere bra co-ord (opens in new tab)?) In her April 2020 Allure cover interview (opens in new tab), she opened up about the move and the freedom it afforded her and daughter Suri. "I have more fun. I'll take a class at Broadway Dance Center. I'll go to the Joyce Theater. I do hot yoga and boxing classes. I have a book club," she said. "The city has a lot to offer, and I use it."
"Yes, it's a little too exposed at times, and we work hard to maneuver and navigate. But what I love about New York is that for me and my child, this is our vibe," Holmes continued. "When there are 25 things to do every night, it takes you out of your own thing. And you know what else I discovered? There's a place not far from my house that does foot massages until midnight. That's what New York offers!"
