It's been hot, hot, hot here in NYC (and, well, pretty much all over the US) and newly-single mom Katie Holmes
knows the key to staying sizzlin' in this weather.
Spotted taking an always adorable Suri
to a playdate last week, Katie demonstrates how easy it can be to look put-together during these scorching summer months. Let's break it down, shall we?
Complete with subtle shaping darts and a gently ruched waist, the streamlined structure of this Madewell chambray dress
($138) provides all the breeze of a sundress but looks more polished than a frock you'd sport at the beach. (Plus it has hidden pockets. Score!)The Rest of the Best:
Because the dress is so plain and simple, it's the perfect canvas for layering dainty accessories that won't weigh you down and cause, um, unpleasant stickiness (like a heavy statement necklace or an arm party of bangles can).
Knowing this, Katie throws on a delicate charm necklace and a single gold cuff. She finishes her summery ensemble with an effortless leather belt and a color pop of bright green ballet flats.
What's your favorite thing about Katie's style? And don't you just love this dress? Tres chic
