Katie Holmes Proves the Bra-First Look Can Be Business Casual


The Bra-First Look Trend

Take yourself back to the autumn of 2019, when Katie Holmes broke the internet by casually hailing a cab in SoHo, clad in a chic barley-hued cashmere bra and cardigan set from Khaite. Paired with straight-leg jeans and sleek black open-toe sandals, her ensemble marked a significant shift in fashion.

Katie Holmes’ Latest Bra-First Statement

Now Holmes makes another bra-first statement, this time courtesy of a prestigious Parisian fashion house. At a Chanel dinner to celebrate its Fifth Avenue watches and fine jewelry flagship, Holmes wore head-to-toe Chanel. Her outfit included a navy cashmere cardigan with utilitarian pocket details with matching trousers in the same butter-soft fabric. Underneath her cardi, a lacy black bra peeked through. Accessories included a striking diamond necklace, diamond earrings, a black leather quilted shoulder bag, and black-and-white ankle-strap pumps.

Leading the Trend

While the trend for exposed bras has resurfaced in recent months, with celebrities like Emma Watson, Emily Ratajkowksi, and Sharon Stone embracing the peekaboo style, it was the Dawson’s Creek actor who initially propelled the look to fame with her daring cashmere ensemble.


It’s thrilling to see Katie Holmes has returned to her cozy yet superchic styling hack in the most luscious of Chanel pieces. Her bold fashion choices continue to inspire and push boundaries in the world of style.
