Welcome to The Blueprint, where we break down the celebrity looks we want to wear right now and build them back up, piece by piece.

Another day, another Katie Holmes outfit I want to copy.

The actress recently posted a carousel of photos on Instagram highlighting a trip to Paris and, in one image, she wore the perfect American-in-Paris laid-back chic look. Her outfit was made up of staple pieces — just an oversized button-up shirt and straight-leg pants — but her silver ballet flats were a shining touch that set it apart.

They might sound flashy, but they aren’t: In leather that isn’t patent, the sheen of silver is muted, and it actually makes for a versatile color that can be worn with black, white, denim, red — the list goes on!

Ballet flats have been super popular with celebrities this spring and summer, and Holmes was one of the stars who was first to the trend. This pair from Naturalizer comes in seven colors, including silver, and has the brand’s signature Contour+ Comfort technology for all-day support. They also come in an impressive range of sizes, from 5–12 in both standard and wide widths.


While the front of Holmes’ pants isn’t visible in the Instagram snap, it’s safe to assume they’re high-rise: The actress recently said she “prefers a high waist.”

These Amazon Essentials drawstring pants have a relaxed fit with a straight leg, like the pair Holmes wore, and are made from a linen-cotton fabric that’s breathable for summer. They come in 11 colors and have more than 2,600 perfect ratings from shoppers.

The last piece needed to recreate Holmes’ American girl in Paris look is an oversized button-up in classic blue. Given the season, linen would be a good move here, too — the Gap offers its Big Shirt in just the right combo of color and fabric (it also comes in cotton and plenty of other colors). Even better, it’s available in petite, standard, and tall, so you can get just the right oversized fit for you.

Add a pair of silver ballet flats like Katie Holmes’ to your summer shoe collection, along with the rest of her outfit, too. Keep scrolling to shop pieces from Amazon, Nordstrom, Zappos, Shopbop, and more.
