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?

Not digging it. What is she trying to do to herself? Can she no longer afford to changes her outfits? I like the old Katie better. The chic look and this “man” look doesn’t work for her at all. She is also aging herself tremendously. When she goes chic she has entirely too much make-up on and the outfits are too old for her. This “man” look makes her look old and matronly and completely not sexy.

UGH! I hate that style. As everyone has already said- it went out of style YEARS ago- and it needs to stay out of style. I realize that every few years fashion comes back in… but this is one of those things that NEEDS to stay away. I wonder if the celebrites just think “Let’s see if I can make x come back in style” Just because a celeb is doing it- doesn’t mean it looks good…

If she’s going to pin-roll her jeans, she ought to at least do it right!

The pants look horrid!

I think this look is the look of a young woman in NY City who doesn’t know how to dress herself. My guess is the people who usually dress her are not there to do it and this is the “real Katie Holmes style”. The rest of the time her hair and clothes look like she is trying to be the clone of another person. Yes, David’s better half! The pictures above actually remind me of a look that Nicole Kidman minus the pegs had at one time. Except Nicole pulled it off and NEVER looked like a slob.

Ok, so I read the first page of comments. I was bored. I loved the baggy pants, it makes real women (past size 4) look fashionable. But, do we really care. Three hundred plus dollars. Try the salvation army. $10.00 max. If all of the hollywood girls would do this, they along with the rest of us could send LOTS of money to the empty food banks here and around the world. Now that’s a subject worth reading 8 plus pages.

Why doesn’t she also wear white socks pulled up over the rolled up bottoms, to complete the 1985 fashion we all used to sport? Better yet, neon socks! Wow. Obviously she could benefit from “What Not to Wear”.

Ok tight rolled jeans went out in 1990!! i HATE this trend i think its so UGLY!! Why dont they just bring back hypercolored shirts while they’re at it….anyone remember those??

Baggy jeans aren’t trendy…they just make you look like your pants are too big to stay up. For Katie Holmes, they just emphasize how disgustingly skeletal she is.

I hate that haircut she looks like she aged 10 or more years
she used to look great with her long hair and young and now she looks old and cold

what happened to the smile she used to have all the time and she hardly ever touches her husband when before she was all over him,
