Holmes paired hers with sneakers for daytime

Stripes strike again!

A few days ago, Katie Holmes was spotted in New York City wearing a striped strapless dress that just so happened to be the exact same style Meghan Markle wore not even a month ago. But while their outfits could have looked like a flashy uniform for actresses alike, they actually had completely different vibes — and that was because of their shoes.

To style the $239 Posse dress for a dinner date, Markle pulled her hair up and dressed it up with some sandals and a clutch. Holmes, on the other hand, followed the go-to outfit formula celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Jessica Alba lean on: She paired the dress with comfy sneakers, and in this case, cream Balenciaga ones. She also kept her hair down and added black sunglasses and an oversized bag to round out the look.


However you accessorize, you need the bare bones, a.k.a. a striped dress, to replicate their looks. We found similar options starting at $18, so keep scrolling to shop them now.

The Venus Maxi Beach Cover-Up Dress looks like the designer dress, and it can be worn to places other than just the pool. One shopper, who wears it for beach walks, brunches, and dinners, said, “The weight of this soft knit makes it flow when you walk, and it doesn't wrinkle when packed.”

It has a similar strapless neckline and chunky, spell-binding stripes, but ones that span both vertically and horizontally. On sale for $40, it comes in three colors and is available in sizes up to 3X.
