Amal Clooney’s Best Outfits Will Inspire Your Holiday Wardrobe This Season
There's a reason Amal Clooney's style is so enviable. Not only does she have a keen eye for pairing chic silhouettes with bold hues, but she infuses her timeless style with subtle trends. Although your holiday itinerary will likely look much different than hers, it's a smart move to take a few notes from Amal Clooney's best outfits when piecing together your own.
The countdown to Thanksgiving is officially on, which means a string of family, friend, and even office gatherings will be here before you know it. Although dressing for parties isn't always a straight-forward task, Clooney's style may just be the inspiration you need. Ahead, check out Clooney's best looks and shop the pieces you'll need to reimagine them at home.
Clooney chose a unique version of a classic piece by opting for an emerald-green leather jacket. Jewel tones of all types are a must for fall, and a jacket is an easy way to incorporate the trend into your Thanksgiving look without straying too far from what you're comfortable in. And green leather isn't just limited to outerwear — if you're not ready to part ways with your go-to coat, opt for a mini skirt, a pair of pants, or even a button-down top.

Colored Leather Biker Jacket
If you're looking to upgrade an ensemble you've worn over and over again, throw this green-leather jacket on top of a black turtleneck and gray jeans. Complete the outfit with heeled booties, loafers, or mules.
High-Rise Leather Cigarette Ankle Pants
Rag & Bone
These forrest-green cropped pants are just the right length to show off a stylish pair of ankle boots. Wear them with a satin top, a wool trench coat, and a structured tote bag for the perfect balance between elegance and edge.
Abandon all outdated fashion rules here, because white can and should be worn after Labor Day and far beyond. Clooney teamed a white mid-length dress with a longline coat that featured matching leather details. While a dress can seem impractical as the weather gets cooler, tights help combat the freezing cold and keep your legs completely covered. Accent the crisp black-and-white combination with gold details (think: statement earrings, a thick bangle bracelet, or a long, delicate necklace).

Dress With Contrasting Belt
This dress, which features a belted wrap detail, is likely an elevated version of a shirtdress you already own. If your Thanksgiving often consists of chasing around a gaggle of kids, this breezy number is perfect for you. Wear it with chunky boots and a detailed crossbody or clutch to amp up the sophistication.
Everybody needs a versatile piece in their closet like this white ruffled dress. Pair it with thigh-high suede boots and an oversized faux-fur coat for a winter look. If you're going somewhere sunny, add a pair of pumps or sandals and a lightweight blazer.
Swapping out your most reliable jeans for a pair of checked trousers is a simple way to take your look from casual to polished. Clooney dressed hers up with a black sweater, a matching trench coat, and a pair of pointed pumps. Even after Thanksgiving comes to a close, you'll want to style for every occasion (work, happy hour, or even a night out).

Tory Burch put a contemporary spin on these checked pants by adding a sleek stripe down the side. The ankle-grazing cut keeps them modern, while the old-fashioned print pays homage to a very retro style.
Drawstring Flowy Trousers
While they look like tailored trousers, these flowy pants feel like you never stepped out of your pajamas. Pair them with an off-the-shoulder sweater, a form-fitting knit, or a bulky cardigan.
Trench coats are just as practical as they are stylish — especially if you opt for a bold hue. Clooney leaned into the trend with this sky-blue fur-collared wool trench. She paired it with another on-trend piece, a leopard print midi dress, for the ultimate contrast. Although mixing prints and clashing colors has been increasingly popular as of late, this slightly subtle mixture is a great way to experiment with bold combinations if you're still a bit weary.

Yvonne Fur-Trimmed Wool Coat
Saks Potts has made a name for themselves over the last year in the realm of brightly colored, fur-adorned coats. This utterly glamorous piece is made for your inner maximalist, and is probably a lot more wearable than you'd think. Wear it on top of a midi dress for a 1970s Cher touch, or keep it modern with a white tee and jeans.
Sierra Wool Coat
If fur isn't your thing (real or faux), try a simple wool coat in a playful color like this salmon-pink variation. Wear it with the belt to cinch it at the waist, or remove it for a boxier fit.
