How To Recreate Katie’s Exact “TODAY” Show Outfit — And Get the Look for Less

Were you envying Katie’s pink suit from her TODAY Show appearance? Here’s how to recreate the look.

This morning, Katie reunited with her TODAY Show family to speak about her breast cancer diagnosis, which she shared with the world in a personal essay last week.

“I just feel super lucky that it was diagnosed when it was, that I went, even though I was late, that I went when I did,” she said during the interview. Like many of us, Katie lost track of time and went in for her annual mammogram six months late. 

When her radiologist saw something in her breast during the mammogram, she made sure that they acted quickly. Her doctor suggested they take a biopsy that same day, which revealed that the small tumor in Katie’s breast was cancerous. Thankfully, it was less than small in size, was in the early stages of development, and will likely not spread to Katie’s lymph nodes. 

The interview continued for a whopping 11 minutes, allowing Katie, Hoda, and Savannah to talk about everything from Katie’s diagnosis to how she told her daughters the scary news. 

We were all listening closely to what Katie had to say and after the interview, we all had mammograms on our minds…but we also couldn’t stop thinking about the gorgeous pink suit she was wearing. She paired the bright ensemble with a simple button-down top, her signature glasses, and gorgeous blue heels.

You can actually score the exact suit Katie wore during her interview on sale from J.Crew right now, but we’ve also found some lookalike pieces for a bit less. 

Katie’s Suit

J.Crew Willa Blazer in Italian City Wool


Made for crisp New York City fall days like today, this wool blazer will keep you warm on chilly days, and it looks just as great buttoned as it does open. 

Buy Here: $278

J.Crew Willa Full-Length Flare Pant in Italian City Wool


While flare pants may conjure up images of bell bottoms and boogie-worthy pants, these are definitely a more chic take on the wide-leg silhouette — just look at how put-together Katie looks in them!

Another Option: Light Pink Suit

Nordstrom Cinched Waist Blazer


If you’re not a huge fan of bright hues, this muted pink blazer may be easier to style. The silhouette is similar to the one Katie wore, and it’s also on sale for 40 percent off right now.

Nordstrom Slim Fit Trousers


Straight leg pants are timeless, and they’re great if you prefer bottoms that are more fitted. These still have a flattering high-rise, but the legs have a slightly narrower fit if that’s what you prefer.

Katie’s Shirt: Classic White Oxford

J.Crew Classic-Fit Crisp Cotton Poplin Shirt


As a base layer, Katie wore this crisp white button-up, also from J.Crew. This specific one comes in classic, petite, and tall sizing, so you can opt for something longer or shorter based on your body type. If you want to go the extra mile, J.Crew also offers monogramming for this shirt, so you can add your initials to the pocket or sleeve.

J.Crew Slim-Fit Stretch Cotton Poplin Shirt


Katie’s shirt did have a pocket on the chest, but you can also opt for something with a clean front like this one. If you want some stretch in your shirt, too, this one will move with you as opposed to being crisp and not stretching at all.
