The latest trends have been anything but dainty. Baggy jeans, oversized sweaters and boxy outerwear have recently dominated the shelves and sidewalks.
But Katie Holmes is proving there’s still room for a prim-and-proper top-handle pocketbook.
The mega-star was seen exiting Good Morning America, where she promoted the upcoming off-Broadway play The Wanderers last week in an outfit that got playful with proportions.
Holmes sported a pair of chocolate-brown, wide-legged high-waisted pants and an oversized Tove leather jacket over a Chanel top. But she finished the look with low metallic wedges and a small top-handle Savette Symmetry Pochette bag.

Holmes’ Savette pocketbook was teal. You can currently rock it in forest green for $1,190, but these stylish top-handle purses have two or low-three-figure price tags.
