While traditionally the beginning of the year marks award show season with red carpets taking place on almost a weekly basis, it comes as no surprise that January 2021 looks a little different to year's past. With fancy events and exclusive premieres off the cards for the foreseeable future, we are no longer looking to celebrity style and seeing custom-made designer gowns or shimmering jewels with eye-wateringly high price tags. No, the celeb style of 2021 is far more attainable and honestly, we're not complaining.

Of course, when it comes to star style Katie Holmes is on the top of our watch list, thanks to her running streak of fabulous casual ensembles. While in previous years, Katie Holmes would spend January walking red carpets in designs by the likes of Zac Posen or Valentino, this year she's taken to the streets of New York in a number of pared-down, casual denim looks.

From wide-leg vintage wash iterations to straight leg indigo pairs, Katie Holmes is certainly making a case for leaving your skinny jeans in the closet this year. The actress has been spotted out several times in the last few weeks wearing barrel leg and cropped silhouettes that are no doubt the comfiest looks to run your errands in. On each occasion, she's paired her jeans alongside warm coats, practical flat footwear, and, of course, a face mask. Keep scrolling to see four Katie Holmes denim looks we plan on copying immediately.
