Katie Holmes's Denim Story

Recently, it occurred to me that Katie Holmes has exceptional taste in denim. Most of the time, when she's going casual around New York, she's often wearing a pair of jeans. After scouring through images of her online, I was struck by how many pairs of denim she must have, as well as the remarkable variety of choices. What's great is that while jeans are the anchor of most of her outfits, each look is distinct and jazzed up in its own way—butterscotch colored flats, spiky heels, cuffs rolled up, a cool bag, a pink bracelet—her outfits come across effortless. 

I used outfitidentifier.com to track down three of my favorite pairs of denim that I've seen her in recently. The pair on the far left is by Current/Elliott. I've been really curious about this line of denim for a while, having seen that it's growing in popularity rapidly. The middle pair of jeans is by J Brand and while I've never tried this style on, either, I've heard great things about the brand. The third pair, the wide leg version, is by 7 For All Mankind. I've always favored this line for its careful fit on a curvy body, and while Holmes is nowhere near curvy, she does lean toward a slender/athletic body type. For a while, I was burned out on 7 For All Mankind's jeans as they reminded me of the bootcut versions I wore about seven years ago (very out of style by now), but this wide leg pair by the same brand is refreshing.
