Katie Holmes Does Normcore—But Makes it Chic

Katie Holmes, who has been known to jet around Manhattan in stiletto heels and chic designer dresses, was having a more casual, normcore day yesterday. The actor was spotted running errands in a more understated look, made of pieces that are close to what your dad might wear on the weekend. But make no mistake, Holmes’s take on the relaxed look is still plenty chic. Her outfit says dad, but expensive dad. 

Holmes stepped out in a classic black tank and beige sweats for a sleek, simple look. Her tan baseball cap and black Birkenstock sandals further lended to the normcore feel (Holmes loves a Birkenstock sandal—she wore them all summer long last year). Why does her take read so stylishly? The cropped tank silhouette and neutral colors all work together, and make it feel dressy as a whole. She proved that looking good doesn’t have to mean wearing the latest It bag or shoe—even the simplest outfit can clearly be totally stylish.
