Katie Holmes Kick Starts Biker Girl Spring

Days after taking spring's barn jacket trend for a spin, Katie Holmes is already test-driving another new layer. But make no mistake: She isn't leaving her beloved wardrobe staples behind.

Holmes turned the Manhattan sidewalk into a one-woman fashion show on Sunday, May 12, wearing a toughened-up version of her denim outfit formula. Her wide-leg jeans, Mansur Gavriel black tote bag, and Gucci loafers were familiar to anyone keeping close tabs on Holmes's personal style. Her oversize leather jacket with zipper-detail sleeves and an exaggerated collar was entirely new.

So far, neither stylist Brie Welch nor devoted Holmes fans have shared exact credits for the tough outer layer. Given Holmes's flair for high-low dressing, it's as likely to come from a designer like Isabel Marant as it is to have affordable Mango or Banana Republic tags. (This post will be updated when credits are confirmed.)

Mansur Gavriel's "everyday" tote may as well have gotten its name from Holmes. The Dawson's Creek actress carries the oversize leather bag constantly, whether she's dressed down in jeans or trying a slip dress and Mary Janes.

The same goes for her beloved Gucci loafers. Hardly a week goes by without Holmes finding new ways to style her often-worn pair. (She even owns them in two colors.)

It's the jacket fit for a cross-country motorcycle brigade that's a left-turn for Holmes. This spring, she's mostly opted for longline trench coats, oversize quilted jackets, and suede bombers—pieces that lean more '90s minimalist than biker grunge. But she's not far off from the rest of Hollywood: Celebrities from Hailey Bieber to Rosalía lean on extra-oversize leather jackets for an edgy finishing touch on their street style.
