Katie Holmes puts on a city tour on the cowboy boot
Fall is just around the corner, which means it’s a great time to try out a new look for the season. High heel fan Katie Holmes certainly takes this to heart. Instead of, say, her favorite Bottega mules, the sleek star was spotted in New York this weekend wearing an urban take on the classic cowboy boot. Her pair is sleek, understated, and can be worn with just about anything. (Although she did style them with denim.)
What makes Holmes’ fall shoe change so relevant? The pointed toe and chunky block heel give them a cool western slant, but overall the boots are refined and versatile. It’s just enough visual interest without being a loud, cheeky statement. She also wore them with a classic white tee and straight jeans: a foolproof outfit if ever there was one. Sure, trendy boots have been all the rage lately – think glittery knee-highs and chunky lug soles – but the understated cowboy boot is more of a classic and can fit pretty much any personal style. .
Holmes isn’t the only star to adopt the city-dweller’s cowboy boot, either. Diane Kruger wore a brown pair with a checked two piece suit, while Kate Moss wore a black leather style to the airport with an overcoat, polka dot blouse and skinny jeans. This is the cool new girl boot. Combat boots, who?
