Amal Clooney is one woman who seems to be blessed in all aspects of her life. Apart from being married to one of the most famous men in the world, George Clooney, the 38-year-old is also successful in her career as the lawyer, activist, and professor is entirely dedicated to defending human rights. It also doesn’t hurt that she looks good doing it, as Amal is one of the most sartorially savvy women on the planet.
One can witness Amal’s impeccable corporate style by simply running a Google or Pinterest search on the Lebanese-British lawyer. Photos of her looking chic and stylish will send any female office worker scrambling to take notes on her style picks, and the good news is, one doesn’t even need a law degree to look as good as her.
Here are some corporate style lessons that we can all learn from Amal Clooney.
Know the power of a good tailored dress
Last year, Amal visited the United Nations in New York City wearing a white knee-length shift with sleeves with a red and blue detail around her waist. As seen in pictures posted by the Daily Mail, Amal paired the look with black pumps and jazzed it up with a red bag. Her outfit, coupled with simple drop earrings and understated makeup made her look professional and chic.
For work, Amal favors dresses with a bit of structure that hit just above the knee. For similar styles, check out Banana Republic’s collection of sheath dresses, or J Crew’s versatile Resume dress.
Experiment with fun accessories
Amal can often be seen carrying a colored bag whenever she wears an outfit in a neutral color. She also wears big shades to shield her eyes while out and about.
Wear great shoes
The lawyer knows that shoes can definitely make or break an outfit, so apart from classic pumps, Amal also has a collection of heeled shoes in different prints and colors to mix and match with her work wardrobe. As seen in photos published by Refinery 29, Amal paired a white pencil skirt, matching top, and a Burberry trench with a bright red purse and patterned heels.
Give ladylike skirt suits a try
Amal favors neutral skirt suits in tweed, but she can also rock a red skirt suit like a boss. Pair the ladylike look with good heels and an unfussy hairstyle for a younger take on power dressing.
