Whether she's layering in an oversize jacket, a knit sweater, or loose pants, the Katie Holmes style book leans heavily on relaxed, comfortable clothing. After a night out at the ballet yesterday, Holmes has returned to fashion as usual—with a mother-daughter matching twist. For a rainy day in New York City, she brought her daughter, Suri Cruise, for a stroll, and it seems Cruise has taken some cues from her parent's casual wardrobe.

During their daytime walk around Manhattan on Wednesday, May 15, the Dawson's Creek alum was seen wearing a chunky oatmeal sweater, which she layered underneath a beige lightweight trench coat. She styled her top with front-seam baggy denim jeans—a silhouette she wore with her daughter weeks before—along with a pair of chunky black boots.

Holmes completed her outfit by coordinating her beige jacket with a matching mini bag by Freja and black sunglasses.

Cruise was spotted by her side in a double denim moment, joining her mother in co-signing the rising yet timeless spring styling trick. The 18-year-old's outfit for the day consisted of a baggy medium-wash denim jacket lined with a camel-colored corduroy collar—similar to the barn jacket Holmes wore last week. She also wore a white T-shirt underneath, matching baggy jeans, and brown Birkenstock clogs (yet another one of her mom's favorite shoes).

Holmes's stroll with Cruise comes after her night at the American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala, where she made her second red carpet appearance this year.

At the event, the actress dressed for the ballet, but not in balletcore as one would expect. With the help of her stylist Brie Welch, she opted for a beaded black dress by Emilio Pucci and matching Manolo Blahnik heels.

Holmes and Cruise have been making more casual appearances together following the latter's eighteenth birthday this year, and the mother-daughter duo is extremely close. In a 2023 interview with Glamour, Holmes spoke about her daughter before her project, Rare Objects, was released.

"What has been really important for me with my daughter, because she was so visible at a young age, is I really like to protect her," Holmes explained. "I'm very grateful to be a parent, to be her parent. She's an incredible person."
