Gingham has long been the unofficial print of the summer. So it comes as no surprise that Katie Holmes, who is always on-trend, stepped out donning the style in black-and-white on the first day of the season.
Holmes is a fan of relaxed summer looks that are perfect to wear to any summer outing. Recently, she stepped out in a knitted, polo-neck crop top from Mango, a nod to the cottagecore trend that’s taken over Instagram and TikTok last year, and a pair of mid-rise light wash jeans that waved goodbye to skinny jeans.
Gingham — the epitome of #picniccore, which is having a moment this summer — has popped up on everything this season, from blazers and pants to dresses and swimwear, making it an unsurprising addition to Holmes' wardrobe. The actress also took a cue from the BAFTA TV Awards, where billowy sleeves were the biggest trend — one that promises to continue throughout the fall with brands like Alexander McQueen making statement sleeves to wear to all the post-vaccination parties.
For your next picnic outing, shop the dress (also available in green and a daisy print) at Kate Spade New York.
