Many of us will remember Katie Holmes as the fresh-faced Joey Potter in the hit TV show Dawson’s Creek. In only a few years, the actress and fashion designer transformed from cute and girly to full blown chic and sophisticated yummy mummy.

Of course, being married to one of Hollywood’s most powerful and rich stars comes with its sartorial responsibilities. Katie is constantly under the spotlight, but whether she’s gracing the red carpet with Tom or running errands with daughter Suri, Katie always looks effortlessly stylish and is rarely papped looking anything other than gorgeous. She favours feminine but wearable pieces, keeping her ensembles simple and polished with a splash of trend inspired fun thrown in for good measure.

On a casual day, Katie will often be seen in flared jeans worn with heels to emphasise her super slim figure and will pair with a demure pussy-bow blouse or a classic tee. She’s also a fan of Jackie O-style oversized sunnies and will usually be sporting some kind of must-have bag by designer folk such as Hermes, Chloe and Ferragamo. When she wants to up the glamour factor, Katie goes for ladylike elegance with timelessly classic shift dresses teamed with contemporary pieces such as leather biker jackets or a leopard print coat to keep the look fresh and current.

What Katie always gets spot on is balance. If she wears statement pieces, she’ll keep accessories minimal and she never wears anything too revealing. Katie is renowned for her glossy chocolate brown mane and has most recently been working the long and natural look, or wearing her hair slicked back into a non-fussy ponytail.

Tips for stealing Katie’s style:

Invest in a pair of fitted flared jeans and wear with heels for daytime chic

Accessorise every daytime look with a huge bag and oversized sunglasses

Wear classic and elegant pieces such as black shift dresses teamed with heels and a trend inspired jacket

Keep make-up youthful, fresh and minimal

Jewellery should be delicate and understated

Marry a tiny Hollywood actor to make you look even taller than you actually are
