Katie Holmes Brings Winter Woven Summer Shoes to Ulla Johnson Show – Footwear News
Katie Holmes just proved that summer shoes can easily be worn in the winter, even during a snowstorm, at Ulla Johnson’s Fall 2022 fashion show at New York Fashion Week. The runway event, held at the New York Public Library, also featured a front row of stars including Holmes, Sarita Choudhury and Huma Abedin.
For the occasion, the ‘Dawson’s Creek’ star arrived in style in a black parka. The utilitarian garment featured stylish elements like a waist tie and puff sleeves, giving it instant femininity. Holmes cleverly paired the piece with a knee-length skirt, creating a monochrome moment that was both hard and soft. In true minimalist style, her look was accessorized with just earrings, a gold chain and gold crystal pendant necklaces.
When it comes to shoes, however, Holmes argued for a summer shoe restyling for winter. The ‘Logan Lucky’ actress wore a pair of woven shoes which, although they had rounded closed toes, were made from strips of leather with curved uppers for a mesh effect, making them ideal for warmer temperatures. However, she wore them over a pair of black tights, creating an entirely streamlined ensemble while revamping non-winter footwear.
The trick brought to light Holmes’ masterful layering abilities and proved his ability to cleverly reuse pieces regardless of their season. After all, who could forget her cashmere cardigan and bralette moment that inspired countless people in the fashion industry for over two years?
Holmes is best known for her classic style for all women, often re-wearing beloved pieces all year round. As for shoes, she keeps her classic selections with Veja and Adidas sneakers, Gucci loafers and Bottega Veneta mules. Beyond her off-duty pointy shoes, Holmes’ experience in the fashion industry has also earned her the title of Olay brand ambassador. Previously, she was the face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Miu Miu and Ann Taylor. Additionally, Holmes was co-founder of the fashion line Holmes & Yang, launched with her stylist Jeanne Yang, from 2011 to 2014.
