As far as everyday dressing goes, nobody's mastered cold-weather style like Katie Holmes. Though known for her roles in Dawson's Creek, Rare Objects, and more, the actress is also renowned for her easygoing and relatable wardrobe. From sharp suiting to comfy-cozy sweatpants, Holmes' best street style moments are fresh-feeling yet familiar, too.

In winter months, the actress often re-wears versatile and trendy pieces like knits, coats, denim, leather bags, and boots from brands including Patou, Chloé, Ulla Johnson, and Staud, to name a few. A core example is Holmes' recent outing in New York City, where she strolled in The Frankie Shop's camel coat, light blue jeans, and Adidas' black Samba OG sneakers. Red-framed sunglasses and layered gold necklaces gave her outfit a nostalgic edge.

Holmes also chicly hit the streets of New York in December 2023, wearing a gray overcoat, black sweater, and deep blue jeans by Another Tomorrow. The actress gave her look a smooth finish with black boots, while Patou's red Le Patou bag provided a trendy pop of color.

During Ulla Johnson's Spring/summer 2024 show in September 2023, Holmes journeyed to Brooklyn in the designer's belted maroon midi dress and black leather Esme bag. Staud's black Wally boots—a go-to shoe for the star—chicly finished her look.

While shopping in New York's Soho neighborhood in February 2022, Holmes was draped in a paneled black coat. A black midi skirt, two-toned leather boots, and a stitch-trimmed brown Chloé handbag gave her look a bohemian edge.

For Kate Spade New York's Spring 2022 presentation, Holmes braved the chill in Manhattan in a dark blue midi dress. Her look earned full coverage from tall leather boots with chain-topped toes, as well as Spade's soft white Meringue bag.
