Katie Holmes Is Currently Fixated on Wide-Leg Trousers

Must read

Forget dresses over pants — the trend arbiter is officially setting her sites on voluminous silhouettes.

Fashion’s new favorite tastemaker Katie Holmes has officially left the dresses-over-pants conversation in favor of a new topic of discussion: wide-leg trousers.

The actor donned two outfits in New York City on Wednesday while promoting her upcoming off-Broadway play, “The Wanderers.” Though each look was distinct, they did hold something very important in common: a pair of high-waisted, billowing slacks.


Upon her arrival at the “Good Morning America” studios, Holmes sported a white button-up under a Tove leather blazer jacket paired with a sea-foam-colored velvet clutch by Savette. However, the star of the show was Holmes’s golden wide-leg pants, reminiscent of a glass of champagne for both their hue and exaggerated, bubbly nature.

Then, Holmes surprised us all by turning out yet another wide-legged look as she left the studio.

The star went with a similar silhouette, but swapped out her blouse and pants for a different color palette. The second look hinged on a Chanel striped midnight blue neoprene top (sourced by Club Vintage) and a pair of linen trousers in a chocolate-brown shade.

To finish off both looks, Holmes wore pointed metallic silver pumps.

The dedication to the wide-leg movement, a choice made by Holmes’s stylist Brie Welch, is a step away from the seemingly imminent skinny-pant resurgence, thanks to collections from Celine, Saint Laurent and more.

Beyond cementing the flared pant as a staple not budging from our wardrobes any time soon (despite Hedi Slimane‘s best efforts), Holmes is also continuing to solidify herself as a tastefully modern trendsetter.
