Katie Holmes Masters the Oversized Silhouette For Summer

Now that the New York weather is finally starting to actually feel like summer, the urge to toss your sweaters into storage and dress for the beach is strong — but Katie Holmes has offered a strong counter-argument to that instinct.

For a day out and about in Manhattan, Holmes kept her gray, below-the-hip length v-neck sweater on (you never know when a chilly summer breeze will hit) and paired it with a long white maxi skirt — seemingly an old style from Khaite. Holmes threw out the idea that a big top has to be matched with a fitted bottom (or vice versa), offering up a more easy-going, cloud-like silhouette for the warm weather.

To finish off the look, Holmes accessorized with layered silver and gold necklaces, rings and earrings — also debunking the myth that you can't mix metals. A pair of dark sunglasses, a black leather shoulder bag and comfy-chic Chloé x Teva sandals helped the actor master the effortless summer-in-the-city look.
