Yesterday, we wrote about Katie Holmes being a relatable style queen. She wore a pair of Vagabond Loafers that are still in stock at Nordstrom with a $90 duvet coat from Mango that's currently on sale. Yesterday she was spotted rewearing the loafers, and since Holmes tends to wear her shoes multiple times, we're likely to see them on repeat for the next couple of weeks. But for her latest outing, Holmes switched up her coat game and wore an incredible yellow checked number that we'll be dreaming about until further notice.

The wool coat was by Khaite, the brand behind the famous cashmere bra-cardigan set that propelled Holmes into style-icon territory. There's a million things to love about the coat: the shape, the length, the pattern. But what we can't stop thinking about is the unexpected shade of yellow.

It's not every day you see such a vibrant color, especially on a coat. Most celebrities tend to stick to neutrals, but Holmes's choice is perfect for 2021. Yellow was one of Pantone's colors of the year, and it's a perfect way to shine some light on what is otherwise a pretty dark time.

Holmes's coat was on sale at Matchesfashion but quickly sold out. Khaite also has a coat with the same silhouette in a more subtle beige, but it'll set you back $1,980. Celeb-loved Isabel Marant also has a plaid yellow coat and a cropped version that are good substitutes, although they're still pretty pricey.

Thankfully, the essence of the look can still be achieved with some bold yellow options available at Nordstrom for under $100. There's also some simple check coats like this $170 version by Topshop and this $328 style by Reformation on Nordstrom that aren't as bright at Holmes's but look exactly like something she'd wear next — probably with those Vagabond loafers she can't get enough of.
