It's hard to believe that Katie Holmes' iconic bra and cardigan moment was almost five years ago... Yep, the year was 2019, the month was September, and our view of the humble cardigan was never to be the same again. It was all thanks to Katie that cashmere cardis everywhere left the depths of our grannies' wardrobes and finally took their place front and centre of our autumn/winter looks once more – preferably paired with a matching bra, ofc. Back then, Katie's exact cashmere Khaite set sold out within hours – despite costing in the region of £2,000 (!) – while the high street was soon flooded with less-luxurious (but no less stylish) dupes.
Well, ladies, it looks like it's time to dig out whichever of the two you invested in back in the day, because Katie has just stepped out in a chic cardigan and bra set once again...
Attending a VIP dinner earlier this week to celebrate the opening of Chanel's Watches & Fine Jewellery Fifth Avenue flagship boutique, Katie Holmes recreated her viral fashion moment but with an elegant evening twist. The actress wore a navy-blue knitted cardigan with matching trousers designed by the Parisian brand, that she wore with nothing but a black lacy bra underneath. The final touches? A classic red lip, two-tone Chanel slingback pumps, a diamond lariat necklace, and in typical laid-back Katie style, a messy plait in her hair. So chic, right?! It's giving effortless Parisienne on a night out, and we're obsessed.
Now, given we struggled to afford Katie's cardi-and-bra combo the first time around, we have a sneaking suspicion that the Chanel version is *definitely* out of budget. But fear not! For all you need to copy her look is some lacy underwear, a fresh-looking cardi and a good dose of confidence to pull it off. De-bobblers at the ready, ppl!
