Katie Holmes Pulls Off a Preppy Styling Trick

Hint: golfers love it, too….

Yesterday, Katie Holmes was spotted shopping in New York City wearing a spin on the perfect downtown look. She sported a sleek, double-breasted coat with a pair of classic jeans and Gucci loafers. The ensemble struck the right balance of casual, but put-together—a Holmes wardrobe signature. But the stylish actor’s old preppy styling trick really elevated the look. 

Channelling country club couture, Holmes slung a white sweater around her shoulders—the type of accessory you’d expect to see on a golf course in the Hamptons in the summer, not in SoHo in the dead of winter. But the look is a bonafide runway favorite, and has made a cameo on the runways at brands such as Rosetta Getty and more. All in all, it made for a surprisingly chic end result. The key to Holmes’s successful approach? It’s all in her disheveled execution: Her shoulder sweater was off-kilter and loosely tied, as though she did it last-minute while leaving the house. It’s a decidedly cooler, more effortless vibe than the wrapped-tight approach you see on Stepford wives or golfers. Though if we are talking sports here, this look definitely scores Holmes a hole-in-one!
