Katie Holmes frumpy overalls

The actress tries to resurrect the ’90s style trend, but does her farmer-girl look fall flat? See the ensemble.
The Breakdown: Katie Holmes’ Sloppy-Chic Overalls.

Katie Holmes stepped out in Pittsburgh on Monday wearing something Jennifer Lopez would never be caught dead in: a pair of denim overalls. The horror! But only Holmes, a true style trendsetter, could manage to turn a dated fashion statement from the ’90s — or rather, the 1890s — and make it look casually chic with a side of tragic, sloppy mess. (She needs to lose the coat and blanky-whatever-that-is and then we’re fine.)

Let’s break down why Holmes’ overalls sort of work:

She’s a mom. Holmes clearly aimed for comfort while taking daughter Suri to the museum and out for ice cream. (According to Celebuzz, they’re spending more time on the East Coast while Tom Cruise films his upcoming thriller, “One Shot.”) Seriously, just because Holmes is Mrs. Tom Cruise does not mean she must look like a million bucks, every second of the day. That is exhausting and impossible. In these overalls she looks relaxed and comfortable, if not how we imagine Joey Potter might look like post-“Creek.”

She’s sporting cute boots. Holmes knows how to spice up a casual outfit. Wear high-heeled booties, that’s the trick! (She probably ditched them for a pair of sneakers after the cameras went away.)

She makes us want to dig out our vintage 1998 overalls. What’s the mark of an influential fashionista? You want to wear what they’re wearing. Watch: soon girls on the street are gonna be dressed like the Man Repeller or Six from “Blossom,” minus the scrunchy. Make no mistake.
