Katie Holmes has a thing for "ugly" fashion, and that's part of the reason we watch her street-style looks like a hawk. They're fun! And never boring. She's experimented plenty with Birkenstocks. She tried her hand at pleated skirts (a dormant trend that's very much back this season). And most recently, she revived one of winter's hotly talked about outerwear trends that might not get your significant other's stamp of approval, but it'll certainly get your grandma's.

Holmes was recently spotted out and about in New York City, and her bold outerwear of choice sent the internet into a frenzy. Remember those "ugly" quilted patchwork coats that seemingly took over the internet overnight last winter? Yeah, they're still here, and they're officially Holmes-approved.

She teamed the controversial jacket — which might conjure up thoughts of your grandma's house and that's definitely not a bad thing — with her trusty Re/Done sneakers that she's already worn plenty this month and a disposable Evolvetogether face mask that she's reached for more than anything else this year.

The brand behind Holmes' quilted coat is yet to be discovered — trust us, we scoured the internet and it still remains a mystery — but the good thing is that there is no shortage of lookalikes out there. The quilted coat is also easy to wear, so don't be scared off at first sight. Style it with jeans á la Holmes, throw it over a white summer dress, or pair it with a pleated skirt.

Plus, just like your grandma's special patchwork quilt, this topper is one conversation-starting piece. And we could all use a little help in that department right now.
