Statement Pants

Clooney proves time and time again that sleek, tailored trousers can be the focal point in any outfit (she even opted for pants at the 2018 Met Gala). Even while off the red carpet, the 40-year-old constantly gravitates towards head-turning pants, from flared silhouettes to bold patterns. These cropped, tailored gingham trousers are a stellar option for the office, and will look great paired with a sleek pump.

Little Red Dress

There's no easier way to turn heads than by wearing red, and the bold hue is one of Clooney's favorites. Even though RBDs are usually associated with date night or a night on the town, there are plenty of office-appropriate versions as well. Get ready to command attention at work, the Clooney way.

Modern Skirt Suit

The '80s are back, and that includes iconic, attention-grabbing skirt suits, which Clooney is no stranger to. The attorney and mother of two has been known to don power suits in a number of shades, resulting in endless inspiration for how to bring the retro trend into the modern-day style sphere. Luckily, the options are abounding.

Wear-With-Everything Coat

Nothing elevates a simple workday outfit like a good coat, and Clooney knows a thing or two about stylish outwear. Whether reaching for a colorful trench or a classic camel coat, the lawyer doesn't let cold weather affect her ability to serve looks. Get ready to nail down that perfect everyday coat to pair with whatever, whenever.

Every professional wardrobe requires a quality tote — one that will fit beauty essentials for a mid-day touch-up, as well as your Moleskine notebook. Clooney regularly rocks structured, leather bags, and now it's your turn to take your pick from some of the most stylish options on the market.
