Amal Clooney’s style is the epitome of polished and her knack for finding sophisticated pieces with a fashion-forward edge is a skill we greatly admire when seeking inspiration for our work wardrobes.
In summer, we know mustering an office-appropriate look that keeps you cool can feel like your greatest challenge, especially when you’ve given yourself about five minutes to get dressed. But recently, Amal stepped out in a feminine outfit that not only works well in sunny weather, but is smart enough for the office and after-hours cocktails with friends.
It starts with a pretty rose-print skirt—an elegant staple you can mix and match and dress up or down with a range of blouses, tees and tanks—and is styled with a lightweight knit top and structured satchel. For an unexpected finish (which is her signature) Amal chose a pair of two-tone black and white pumps for a modern juxtaposition. So genius! While every piece is clean and classic, the combination of a sweet skirt and graphic heels feels incredibly fresh and forward (rather than overly saccharine) and an easy method for styling timeless pieces together without feeling overly prim. And while the formula is fail-safe for work, it’s also versatile enough for a range of summer events— from brunches to bridal showers. Can’t beat a formula that can do it all!
Ahead, we’ve re-created Amal’s refreshingly feminine look from head to toe. It’s a guaranteed hit, no matter where you wear it.
Winning Formula: Amal Clooney's Versatile Summer Skirt
An asymmetrical midi skirt is a modern way to wear a feminine rose print. A bit breezier than a structure pencil silhouette, the fluid style is still sophisticated for the office with heels but can easily go laid-back by swapping in slide sandals and a tank.
