Katie Holmes’s most iconic Khaite style moment is a hard one to beat. And if you don’t know which sighting we’re talking about, all you need to know is there was a cashmere bra involved. It was so good, in fact, that it’s still being talked about today, not to mention it’s ignited a new loungewear trend (read: soft, fuzzy lingerie that’s just too good to be worn solely at home). Get ready to see a lot more cashmere bras on your morning commute, and you can thank Holmes for that.

Now, if cashmere bras aren’t your cup of tea (and we don’t blame you if they aren’t), there’s another Holmes outfit element we think you’ll definitely be a fan of — and yes, Khaite, the buzzy brand celebs can’t seem to get enough of, was behind the cuddly essential yet again: a striped blue sweater she’s worn twice already.

A style repeat, especially if it’s as good as this one, is always worth mentioning. Why? Because although celebs may have endless access to clothes and accessories, deep down, they're just like us and have those closet favorites they reach for time and again. For Holmes, said fave seems to be one cuddly blue-and-beige cashmere Khaite sweater with extra-long sleeves.

Holmes first stepped out in the striped knit last year, layering it over a chambray button-down. She wore it with easygoing jeans and her go-to white Common Project sneakers (another fashion find she’s wearing on repeat). Most recently, the actor teamed the sweater with baggy jeans, a gray coat, and loafers. We imagine her wearing it with crisp white jeans and cool Sorel boots for her next outing.

We’re all for those of-the-moment items that hit on the biggest trends of the season, but to be honest, nothing beats a timeless staple — and Holmes’s striped Khaite sweater is one find that will never go out of style. To no surprise, her exact knit is sold out nearly everywhere, but there are plenty of equally covetable options on the market right now.
