Katie Holmes is well on her way to style icon status in 2019. The 40-year-old actress has upped her fashion game over the past few months, most notably starting the viral cardigan and matching bra look back in August.

Weeks later and the A-lister has stepped out in yet another surprising, but stylish, combination: a little black dress and polka dot tights.

Giving us all a reminder of the has-been patterned tights trend, Katie made a strong case for the hosiery in head-to-toe Saint Laurent at the Nordstrom Flagship Opening Party in NYC earlier this week.

The sheer tights were paired with a retro-inspired silk mini dress with square-shoulders and ruched detail, which is available to buy for £1,900.

Katie's sheer dotted designer tights are also pretty spenny, retailing for £150. Luckily, you can get the look for a lot less, a similar pair from Accessorize costing just £6 or £8 on ASOS.

So if you're looking for a way to jazz up your trusty LBD this winter, we suggest giving the Holmes way a go.
