Regardless of your wardrobe, it's easy to fall into a style rut as soon as cold-weather season hits. Read: wearing color feels like a chore. That's why your first step in adding some life to your fall and winter lineup should start with a few cues from Amal Clooney's burgundy dresses.

Clooney isn't afraid to wear with a pop of color — who could forget her bright-yellow dress at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding? — but, lately, she's been playing favorites with a rich, burgundy hue in a handful of dresses and jumpsuits.

While the average person's calendar may not be chalk full of red carpet events, movie premieres, and galas galore, fall and winter also mean company parties, family gatherings, and other social happenings that require dressy attire. What used to call for your over-worn little black dress, can now be the perfect excuse to play around with a celebrity-inspired outfit formula — and an easy one at that.

In the spirit of shaking things up this fall (your black sweater and jeans could use a little break), scroll through for Clooney's very-best burgundy outfits. And, if you're looking to cop her look yourself, The Zoe Report rounded up the prettiest burgundy picks on the market right now — all inspired by Clooney's epic wardrobe.
