Katie Holmes has been serving the looks this month. The actress has long been a fashion plate: remember when she set off the boyfriend jeans craze in the late 2000s? And she still has the power to make a trend go viral, as with the cashmere bra-top that sold out after she was photographed wearing it. And it seems she’s now scouting Milan Fashion Week for even more fresh outfit ideas. Today, Holmes was spotted heading into the Fendi Spring 2020 show, where, for her front-row outfit, she tested out a tricky new celebrity trend for fall: socks and sandals.
The unlikely pairing has been attempted by other well-dressed celebrities such as Sophie Turner. Holmes gave it a dressier spin this week, slipping on a pair of sheer, polka-dotted socks that blended into her bowed slingback heels. It made for a dainty twist on a risky combo – less a statement than a refined way to keep warm for those who aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to the summery sandal. On top, Holmes paired a patent leather-trimmed blazer with a printed red dress that hit below the knee. Meanwhile, large sunglasses and a blue top-handle bag (for a dash of color-blocking) gave this daring fashion week outfit a tasteful finish.
