Katie Holmes Just Wore the Perfect Shirt-and Trousers Look for 2024

In my opinion, Katie Holmes‘s style really shines when she leads with pieces that look and feel comfortable and relaxed. With an effortless air and a strong taste levels, the actor’s errand-running, off-duty looks trump her red carpet successes in my book.

Selecting a sky blue shirt and wide-leg, light cream trousers—both of which been cropping up all over the market recently—Holmes constructed a fresh, spring-ready look that played into her naturally laid-back energy.

Pale blue was one of the biggest colour trends to come from the spring/summer 2024 runways. Appearing in collections including Stella McCartney and Fendi, the light blue shade was styled on repeat with soft cream colours and bright white shades.
