Katie Holmes Cashmere Bra Will Be the Look of Fall (and Pre-Fall)

Katie Holmes is having a moment. Call it a hot girl summer, call it that post-breakup DGAF attitude but her style has never been better. Holmes has always had her own unique sense of style only slightly following the rules of trendy fashion but usually adding her own flair. And she certainly did that in August when during a particularly fall-like week she decided it was time to get out the cashmere, particularly a cashmere bra. 

It was just a moment of pure chicness as the actress hailed a cab while her drapey cardigan perfectly accentuated the $520 bra from Khaite NY which is now, of course, sold out. The internet freaked out when they saw this fashion event as you don’t see a bra made out of wool everyday and now you know they will be the new norm. 

The other seminal part of this ensemble was the $1,540 (also from Khaite) slouchy cardigan which is the official sweater of fall. As we continue to just live in the 1990s when it comes to fashion the cardigan was a pivotal part of that so it makes sense that this is the sweater for fall or pre-fall as Holmes decided. Somehow a cardigan conveys primness but with 90s relaxation mixed in.

As one editor said of the look, “I will be thinking about that Katie Holmes photo for weeks, if not MONTHS.” And so will we. Take that Jamie Foxx. After all, when in doubt, always go cashmere.
