There comes a point in every young woman’s life where she establishes and embraces her own personal sense of style. I knew very early in my 20s that I was never going to be the most fashion-forward gal. While everyone else was wearing bubble skirts and bandage dresses, two very popular trends of the aughts, I was coveting Jennifer Aniston’s practical boot cut jean.

I’ve always loved sensible and affordable clothing. I thrive in a turtleneck. I am my best self in a crew neck sweater. Sure, I dress like an uptight workaholic about to find love in a Hallmark Christmas movie but it works for me.

At times, my reticence to take fashion risks or invest in designer clothes has been a topic of conversation amongst my fellow Yahoo Canada Style editors who have had to teach me about Hypebae street style, logomania and explain why anyone would ever choose to wear a bucket hat.

Covering celebrity style is often a constant reminder of my own limited fashion sense. However, an unexpected champion has emerged from the wreckage of my own internalized style shame: Katie Holmes.

Yes, Joey Potter herself. The “Teaching Mrs. Tingle” star and the only woman to mysteriously walk away from a recurring role in a Christopher Nolan franchise. Katie frickin’ Holmes.

I was in the midst of a three day migraine when I was scanning Getty Images for content and came across a photo of Holmes and her boyfriend, Emilio Vitolo Jr. boppin’ around New York. Holmes was dressed in a blazer and what appeared to be the comfiest joggers in the world.

“We have to find these pants,” I wrote to my manager linking her to the photo, before politely excusing myself to die.

When I learned that what I assumed were $500 cashmere joggers were actually only $70 from Mango, a brand I have worn for years, time stood still.

SHOP IT: Mango, $70

I was Russell Crowe in “A Beautiful Mind” — filtering through years and years of Holmes’s fashion moments. Was Katie Holmes the fashion icon I’ve been looking for all this time? The polka dot tights. The Khaite sweater. The vast collection of trench and double breasted coats. The sensible flats.

Look at everything she’s given us!

It was back in 2002 when Holmes put ombré hair on the map with her is-this-intentional-or-is-it-just-Sun-In locks. She’s braved skin imperfections, questionable career choices (re: leaving “Batman Begins”) and was proof to an entire generation of women that yes – it’s totally OK to date, marry and then divorce someone shorter than you! She weathered speculation that she was faking her pregnancy, successfully hid a relationship with Jamie Foxx for almost seven years and now looks loved-up with her hot younger man. Who doesn’t love a resilient queen?

In all seriousness, Katie Holmes and simple pair of Mango joggers tapped into and eased one of my biggest insecurities. It sounds silly, but it’s true. My friends tease me and I make fun of myself, but in order to keep fashion anxiety under control, I tend to shop from a small pool of brands. They feel safe, comfortable and the most “like me.”

I’ve always been insecure about whether or not I’m “feminine enough” or “good at being a woman.” I’m working on dismantling a long-standing belief that femininity equals desirability. I was always fascinated with the way some women seemed to have an inherent knack for expression through fashion and beauty, mostly because I grew up feeling like they eluded me.

In my teen years, I struggled with an eating disorder and hid behind baggy clothes. I went through my fair share of bullying and name-calling, and thought it would just get better if I could be like the Joey Potters, the Brooke Davises or the Marissa Coopers, effortlessly stylish and beautiful. I would practice doing my hair and makeup at home, even though I had nowhere to go, hoping that if I could master eyeliner I could avoid being teased for being a tomboy.

In my 20s I was finally healthy but had to learn how to invest in and take care of myself. I didn’t even know what I wanted to wear, I didn’t know what I wanted to convey to the world. I dyed my hair blonde and my best friend would dress me up in her sister’s clothes whenever we would go out with friends. I only wore black, thinking it was a safe way to avoid a fashion mistake and it took the guess work out of matching colours and patterns.

Now, in my 30s, I try to take chances and wear colour instead of dressing like an Italian widow. I stick to classic pieces, sweaters and button downs that I never have to worry will go out of style. Most of the time, I think I do an OK job of looking put together when I leave the house, but inside there’s the same internal monologue that wants me to believe I’m not good enough: Do I look OK? Do I look like I fit in? Does everyone think that I don’t belong here?

I double checked and then triple checked that Katie Holmes was in fact wearing Mango joggers. That brief moment of recognition, where I thought, “Hey, I love Mango, too,” was like a reassuring pat on the back that that fashion muscle has gotten stronger and that my instincts for what’s stylish (to me) are sharper than they used to be.

The joggers are currently sold out, but you best believe I’m on the waitlist to get a pair of my own.

Everything You Need to Know About Solid Colognes

No matter who you are – whether you are a complete grooming expert, an utter newbie, or a typical guy falling somewhere in between – you know about cologne. Even if you don’t wear it religiously or know anything about fragrance note complexities, you at least understand the bare bones. But did you know there’s such a thing as solid colognes? There is, and we’re big fans. Want to hop on the bandwagon? With help from Groom Journal here’s everything you need to know about solid colognes and why you should be using them.

The Basics of Solid Cologne 

Let’s get straight to it. What exactly is solid cologne? It’s actually pretty much what it says on the tin. Solid colognes are simply fragrances that are in solid form rather than liquid, usually made from beeswax, shea butter, or some other similar medium that’s moisturising and absorbs nicely. Instead of spraying them on, you then rub them into your skin. This can be done anywhere, but pulse points like the neck or wrists, or somewhere like the chest are usually the most common as they offer better scent activation. We know it might sound gimmicky on the surface, but there are quite a few benefits to using solid colognes in place of their more traditional liquid alternatives.

Why You Should Use Them 

So, what are some of the benefits exactly, and why should you use solid colognes in the first place? For starters, they are significantly more portable than the liquid variety. Where typical ones make on-the-go use difficult, solid ones can be easily carried wherever you go. Just slip it into your backpack or even your jeans pocket and reapply whenever you’d like a little extra scent. You can even carry it on a flight, whereas liquid cologne might cause a touch more trouble because of capacity allowances. Hand in hand with the portability issue, solid fragrances are more durable. Since they are usually stored in a plastic or tin container, there are no worries about glass breaking or cologne leaking all over your stuff. Past this, they’re also easy (or subtler) to use and they’re kinder to your skin than most of the sprays out there due to lower alcohol contents and more moisturising ingredients. In other words, they’re more practical and better for you overall. If that’s not a good reason to use them, we don’t know what is.

All About Application 

Convinced that solid colognes might be the way to go? That’s awesome! We think you’ll love them. Of course, you’ll need to learn how to apply them first. Luckily, it’s a super simple process. Just grab your tin and flip it (or swivel) it open to reveal your fragrance. Instead of digging into the product, swipe your fingers over it a few times, and apply it to your wrists, neck, the bends of your elbows, or wherever else you want it. And that’s it! As we said: easy. You can now close up your tin and go about your day feeling good and feeling fresh.
