Katie Holmes Really Loves Her Pegged Jeans

It’s been hard to miss Katie Holmes‘s recent style switch-up since arriving to New York to start rehearsals for her Broadway debut. Gone are the chic dresses and sleek bob — instead, Katie has been sporting a shorter, wispier ‘do and tons of baggy denim. In fact, we’ve spotted Katie in the same pair of baggy, pegged jeans multiple times in the past week! Turns out that they are the $360 “Barracuda” style from the celeb-fave men’s Prps line — in fact, David Beckham swears by them (and wife Victoria borrows them from him literally!). Prps is even coming out with a women’s style for fall based on how much women love the men’s line, appropriately called “the Boyfriend.” We know Katie is onto a huge fall trend here — she’s not the only star we’ve spotted in baggy jeans lately — but we can’t quite get adjusted to her new look! We want to know what you think. Tell us: What do you think of Katie’s new look? Do you love her jeans as much as she does?

I hated this look in the early 90’s, and it isn’t any better now! Most women don’t want their legs to look bigger and shorter…

I also did this in 7th grade 20 years ago also. We called it tight rolling. It looked stupid then and it still does now!

Uh- purply-pink cardigan and red shoes? No. And she wants to be really stylish, she can get a pair of jeans that button up at the fly and zip at the ankles…. b/c that would be VERY 1984.

Sometimes ugly and out of style is just ugly and outta style.

Pegged Jeans are horrible, baggie jeans are ok thru the legs.

I can’t stand those baggy jeans and the fact she wears them everyday. She has plenty of money to switch up her clothes. Now let’s look at the shoes..Red with fuchia! Since when does that match?

She looks like a frumpy old lady, and she is getting frumpier by the minute.

Claire on

All that money and this is what you choose to wear? Wear are the high tops and jeans tucked into your socks look? Might as well also go back to acid wash!!! Interesting how she became a “classic style icon” when she hooked up with Tommy Boy. She’s adorable but no one really knew who she was when she was with that hottie Chris Klein. Tom influence. Right, Kate?

Min on

I think it has all been said about the rolled up baggys, but what about her shoe choice with the pants? Bleck! In all but pic two I have no idea what she was thinking.

Amy on

Are you kidding?? Pegged jeans?? Obviously she just wants to stay in the spotlight, why else would an ultra-rich celeb sport the same jeans over and over? Attention!! It’s so sad, and immature. This is a style that will HOPEFULLY not be catching on again, but if it does I guess I can peg my 7th grade daughters jeans for her just like I used to do at her age!
