How to Dress Like Amal Clooney on a Budget
Amal Clooney is a barrister, philanthropist, professor, wife (to George) and mom (to Ella and Alexander). As if all of that weren't enough, she’s also a style icon. Here are five of her best copyable looks—as well as how to recreate them without spending an arm and a leg.
Shell Top + Bell-Bottoms
Something to know about Amal: She loves a good flared pant. Bell-bottoms are supremely flattering when worn with heels (read: leg-lengthening). If you’re wearing a printed version, stick to a solid top so the pants are the star of the show.
Sweater + Gingham Pants
Gingham: So hot right now. Mrs. Clooney keeps the classic print firmly out of picnic table territory by wearing it in a modern shape with an above-ankle crop, then topping it off with pointy-toe pumps and a detailed sweater. When it gets a little cooler out, add a pop of color à la Amal with a bold jacket.
Fit-and-Flare Dress + Lace-Up Heels
Regardless of the color or pattern, know this: A fit-and-flare dress is almost universally flattering and should, in one way or another, be a part of your wardrobe. For daytime, pair yours with flats or block heels, and at nighttime, slip into lace-up heels for a dressier vibe.
Cropped Blazer + Flared Trousers
See what we mean about flared pants? This outfit strikes the perfect balance between professional and stylish, and proves that adhering to a business-casual dress code doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing chicness. If you’re recreating it, focus on tailoring. You don’t need to spend a ton on the pieces, but shelling out a little extra on getting the perfect fit is worth it.
T-Shirt + Button-Front Skirt
Noticing a color theme? While Amal is all about bold colors and prints for evening, her daytime looks are often black and white—a timeless combination that’s just as easy to pull off (but a little more interesting) than head-to-toe black.
