Sometimes, celebrities are just like us. They might grab a venti Starbucks Frappuccino for an afternoon energy boost, or carry a practical Daunt Books tote on a dog walk (we see you, EmRata). It’s even better when they wear clothes fans can relate to – and afford. Step forward Katie Holmes and the Duchess of Sussex, who have both been spotted wearing the same chic and budget-friendly summer dress recently.
This week, Holmes was spotted out in New York wearing a black and white striped tube dress called the Theo, from Australian brand Posse. This stylish piece is yours for the relatively affordable (in A-list style terms) sum of AED 1,090. The Dawson’s Creek actor completed her look with black oversized sunglasses, a monogrammed black leather APC Poppy tote bag and cream Balenciaga high-top trainers.

Avid celebrity style-watchers will recognize the striped dress – it’s the same one the Duchess of Sussex wore to celebrate her birthday earlier this month. Meghan put her own spin on the striking piece, styling the shoulder-baring tube dress with flat Emme Parsons black leather sandals, gold Tabayer earrings, a gold Jennifer Meyer tennis bracelet, a gold Cartier Tank watch and a beaded Cult Gaia chestnut brown clutch – all of which made the dress more evening-appropriate.
Switching up your accessories can take an outfit from a casual daytime outing to a more dressed-up evening affair. Katie and Meghan’s Posse dress is a prime example of a versatile wardrobe investment.
