Katie Holmes was seen in New York’s SoHo neighborhood on Friday night as she headed to a Q&A for her 2022 film ‘Alone Together.’

For the event, the writer, director and film star wore a business casual look with a downtown vibe. For example, she wore a standard black blazer with shiny buttons on either side of the jacket. Under the jacket was a white top. As these colors were both common shades, she added another texture, adding to the more casual side of the outfit with a pair of denim carpenter jeans. These slim fit jeans with a high waisted style and a hammer loop that wraps around the side hem to the back pocket. Together, the blazer and denim combination escaped the business casual style that is very representative of Holmes’ known streetwear style, which includes lots of denim.

Holmes added pops of color in different places as she wore dangling multicolored earrings. They started out as a white stud that attached to a yellow rectangular block, which eventually attached to a green ringed circle. These shades added a twist to the mostly neutral outfit. Plus, her hot pink manicure and red iPhone case provided a much-needed pop of color. Holmes wore her black hair in a middle part, her tresses moving over her shoulders – overlapping the straps of her black messenger bag.


The hems of her denim jeans fell over the tops of her white sneakers. These sneakers had a rounded edge with hints of light brown on the front of the shoe. Hidden behind the pants were lace-up ties. These trainers are distinguished from the others by their curved soles and the shade of the brown border on the shoe, evoking the feel of moccasins. These white sneakers maximize the casual look as they complement the jeans nicely, while the crisp white matches the undershirt perfectly.

Katie Holmes’ street style emerged in 2004, and over the next few years her exploration of streetwear and denim was astounding. Three days ago, she was seen in a black off-the-shoulder top paired with similar carpenter-style denim.
