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 think this in hilarious!! We were talking about it at work. She is so cute, love the do and the clothes. But STOP pegging the jeans!! I can’t believe we did this in the late 80’s and 90’s. It certainly doesn’t need to come back!

yep, she is looking more like tom everyday. especially with the new haircut posted today, 8/7.

Who care about the jeans…it’s just great to see Katie looking like herself again!

I miss the old look as well, she looks like a bag lady. I could do without the short hair as well. She is much more attractive with long hair and polish.

This look is absolutely disgusting! It didn’t look good in the 80s and it definitely does not look good now. I used to like the way she dressed but recently she’s been wearing clothes that make her look a lot older than she is. Isn’t she in her 20s?

I loved that look back in 1987 when it was popular.
Not to date myself, but I wouldn’t wear it again.

Not to mention $360 is a crazy amount of money to pay for jeans. How come she’s not wearing DVB brand?

I feel that Katie Holmes tries too hard to be a fashon leader, and most of the attempts are aweful. And is she trying to look older on purpose? She looks at least 10 years older and just plain terrible. What is she thinking?

This look brings me back to Elementary school in the 80’s but just like parachute pants this style should not come back. I do seem to remember doing that to jeans that weren’t as baggy although I don’t think that would make it look much better. :)

The pegged jeans are from the 90’s. I did that back in high school. Her hair is cute though.

Ummm, no. The baggy jeans are fine but the rolled up at the bottom are very 80’s and take me back to High School. I hated the look and still do! I like Katie Holmes more Chic. This latest look is definitely a little too sloopy. However, at least she is getting a style of her own again versus copying off of Victoria Beck. Now, just to get her own hairdo……
