When in doubt of what to wear to fancy gatherings, go with a silk dress and a matching trench coat from Altuzarra's pre-spring 2020 collection. The star stepped out in this orange hue ensemble for the American Ballet Theatre's 2019 Fall Gala at Lincoln Center in NYC. We would one hundred percent wear this outfit ourselves.

Anyone can wear a black suit, but it takes a special trendsetter to rock one with feathers. Holmes proved she was a style star with this Prada set from the resort 2018 collection. She kept her accessories simple with a gold necklace and black heels, letting the suit make a statement on its own.

Every time I see a white halterneck dress, I get Meghan Markle vibes. Holmes wore this Alice & Olivia ensemble in September 2018 while attending New York Fashion Week. It was crisp and elegant, especially when paired with a red lip and beige pumps. If the Duchess of Sussex saw this look, I have a feeling she'd approve.

The words "denim skirt," have a whole new meaning when you're not 18 years old anymore. Instead of wondering how you'll sit comfortably at work in a mini version, take a tip from Holmes and go for a longer knee-length style. It's classy, sophisticated, and even pairs well with Flip-Flops. The star gave her outfit a chic look with a belt and Celine bag.

For an American Ballet Theater event in 2018, Holmes chose a beaded floral dress by BFF and designer Zac Posen. The flared skirt suited her statuesque frame and a boatneck fit highlighted her shoulders. I have to say: blue looks amazing on her.

It's hard to find the right pink coat that doesn't give off Pepto-Bismol vibes, but Holmes did it. This pastel pink coat was cute and feminine, especially when paired with a knee-length dress and suede ankle boots.

It's puffer coat season! Holmes covered up in a metallic silver jacket while leaving a building in Soho, New York. It appears she loved gray so much, she embraced the hue from head to toe.
