Katie Holmes knows how to spot an it-item. The actress has a knack for singling out coveted designer pieces—cashmere Khaite bra tops, quilted Bottega Veneta mules—before they go viral. Her latest finds? Summer essentials in shades of “Grand Canyon sunset” a brown-orange hybrid that has been popping up in social media posts and on the streets. Yesterday in Manhattan, Holmes headed out for a smoothie in Vince’s ribbed racerback tank dress and Hunting Season’s large leather saddlebag. Paired with tortoiseshell cat-eye sunglasses and a pair of Re/Done’s sustainable skate sneakers, the look was perfect for a casual outing with friends.
For the past month, Holmes has worn her Hunting Season purse daily, and it’s easy to see why. The neutral-colored leather and crossbody shape make it a versatile choice appropriate for running errands or enjoying a stroll with friends. Likewise, the scoop neck pullover design of the Vince dress means it’s simple to throw on, layer with other items, or accessorize to the limit.
The ease of Holmes’ outfit made it covetable, but its key selling point may be the price. While not the biggest steal Holmes has found this month—just last week she was photographed in a knit top from the fast-fashion chain, Mango—contemporary label Vince is affordable. Holmes’ ribbed dress currently retails for $195 but looks like a million bucks, great news for all seeking to emulate her effortless style.
