Amal and George Clooney held hands after playing a game of tennis in Laglio, Italy, and Amal was dressed perfectly for the occasion. The stylish but practical lawyer and activist slipped into a frilly skirt and capped off her ensemble with a visor. While you might be excited about the $39 price tag on her sporty Sundek tank top, we were more focused on her footwear: a pair of crisp white trainers paired with ankle-rise socks.
