Another look featured a sheer lace skirt paired with a jersey top and black boots, and another photo showed Maloney posing while wearing a pinstriped vest and pants.
“One thing about me I will always say I have nothing to wear and I hate all my clothes but also love throwing together an outfit,” Maloney captioned the post.
Fans commented with positive messages, including “Selling Sunset” star Chrishell Stause, who posted a series of clapping hand emoji.
But others begged to differ. “I hate these clothes too so that checks,” one follower wrote.
“Not one good outfit! There are stylists that do charity work! I think,” another chimed in.
As of this writing, Maloney does not appear to have replied to any of the negative comments to her fashion post. But her mom, Teri Maoney, did speak out to praise her daughter’s choices.
“You always amaze me with your glowing confidence…no matter what outfit you choose to wear! Love you so much peanut! ❤️❤️,” Teri Maloney wrote. in response to her daughter’s post.
This isn’t the first time fans have seen Maloney’s mom come to her defense. During the 10th season of “Vanderpump Rules,” Teri appeared in the episode “There’s Something About Her,” where she called out her daughter’s ex-husband and co-star Raquel Leviss for their disrespectful behavior toward Katie after their make-out session was uncovered.

In the past, Maloney has faced criticism for her fashion choices. She has also talked about the social media hate she has dealt with.
