Katie Holmes unintentionally created a viral moment in fashion when she stepped out in Khaite's cashmere bra and cardigan in New York City. That was early Fall 2019, and since then, you've probably seen numerous looks like this one hit your Instagram feed. While not all cardigan sets come with bralettes — some with bustiers, some with matching knit tanks, and others with ribbed midi dresses — Katie's pick certainly speaks to the effortless sex appeal that comes with wearing this combination.

"It was very comfortable and easy and I think they [Khaite] do such a good job with creating beautiful luxury items," Katie told Vogue, speaking about her own purchase of the co-ord. That is exactly how we feel about this aesthetic that she's clearly mastered. It's cozy but perfect for the minimalist, especially when complete with a clean, straight-leg jean and mule. It also doesn't require you to do much thinking when you're getting dressed in the morning, and that's always a bonus during layering season.

Since Katie's moment hailing a cab in the street, we haven't just begun to respect the 41-year-old actress's impeccable, attainable taste in streetwear, we've also collected a number of sweater sets to re-create this very outfit on our own. Scroll through to see how some stylish influencers are working the look into their everyday wardrobes, then shop some selects so you can do the same.
