Out of all of the style stars, Katie Holmes is, no doubt, the one to turn to for easy on-the-go outfit ideas. Pay close attention to her effortlessly polished looks and you’ll see that she’s a reliable source of casual-cool fashion inspiration. If you’re wondering how Holmes manages to step out as a sartorial success time after time, it all boils down to a couple of things: first, a relatable, comfort-first approach to dressing and second, a coveted collection of elevated wardrobe essentials.
You’re probably well aware of her love for cozy chic Khaite sweaters and slip-on-and-go Birkenstocks, but there’s another tried-and-true staple that always pulls her laidback looks together. It’s the Gucci loafer.
Nothing fancy or new. In fact, the loafer is actually the brand’s very first shoe created by Aldo Gucci, Guccio’s son, in the early 1950s. It’s an elegant, timeless design that’s topped off with a signature horsebit. That original design evolved to the modernized sleek Jordaan silhouette, whose name was inspired by the artsy neighborhood in Amsterdam.
