6 Sophisticated Styling Tips We Learned From Amal Clooney's Best Fashion Moments
Amal Clooney is an icon in every sense of the word. It's no surprise that the intelligent and poised human rights lawyer captured the heart of Hollywood's most elusive bachelor. There are so many things to admire about Amal — and on top of her many accolades, can we talk about her style?
Every time she steps out to the office, airport, red carpet, or just grabbing coffee, she looks absolutely polished. But as sophisticated as Amal's styling is, it's actually easier to copy than you might realize.
There's definitely a formula to some of Amal's best style moments. First off, she loves a neutral palette. You'll usually see Amal in minimal black, white, cream, or beige, always accessorized with her go-to pointed-toe stiletto heels. Another trend we've picked up on is her love of red and gold. She'll usually wear red as a power color while heading to work, then opt for gold on a night out.
Styling wise, you'll often spot Mrs. Clooney in either a coordinating set, a smart overcoat, a white midi dress, or a chic jumpsuit. We looked through hundreds of Amal's best outfits and picked out six styling tips that make chic, easy-to-copy looks.
The Power of a Coordinating Set
We love this Bottega Veneta set because it's so easy to throw on and look fabulous with minimal effort and styling. It's definitely a wardrobe essential for your sophisticated office outfits.
Never Underestimate a Midi Dress
The black midi dress with white collar and cuffs is a timeless look. Part Chanel, part Wednesday Addams, could you name a better duo? A monochrome midi is the perfect look to wear time and time again because, while it isn't the easiest to remember, it definitely makes a lasting impression.
Les beiges is back. Although neon and neutrals have been battling it out for palette of Spring '19, there's something so fresh and timeless about les beiges. A palette of whites, creams, and earthy camel tones is one that Amal does exceptionally well.
This little A-line midi is so cute. Amal keeps it minimal with a red belt and black pointed-toe stilettos.
Keep a Smart Overcoat On Hand
Depending on where you are in the world, you probably expected the weather to be much warmer by now. But, not to fear, because transitional pieces are here. Instead of denim, leather, fur, or a bomber jacket, we'll be opting for a sleek overcoat like Amal's from Altuzarra. Once the weather warms up a bit, we'll swap the overcoat for a longline blazer on those unpredictably chilly mornings.
Amal's at it again with her favorite monochrome palette. Once you find a winning outfit formula, replicate it any chance you get.
You Can Wear a Jumpsuit Anyplace You Can Wear a Dress
The evening jumpsuit is akin to the little black dress. It can quite easily be dressed up or down, and the high waist on Amal's look really elongates her legs. We're searching for a navy satin number just like this one.
You CAN Elevate a Crop Top
It isn't easy to make a crop top look chic, but of course Amal knows the trick. Take the crop from teenage to red carpet with a bedazzled finish and high-waisted bottoms.
Amal loves a sparkling gold ensemble — and so do we!
This dress might not be a cropped top and midi skirt, but the excellent proportions show us how to recreate this level of glam with a two-piece set.
There's Nothing Like a Classic Hollywood Gown
An empire waist on a long flowing gown gives Amal an amazing silhouette. Plus, can we take a moment to appreciate how incredible this color looks on her? This Atelier Versace gown, plus Kylie's lavender Met Gala ensemble, has us hoping to see more of this beautiful, soft, dreamy color on red carpets to come.
