Leave it to Amal Clooney to effortlessly serve next-level workwear vibes for a swanky night out in Italy. Rounding out a marathon of winning looks in a matter of days, Amal Clooney's plaid pants and top were a bold take on date-night style for the 41-year-old lawyer. Stepping out in Rome with her husband of four years on her arm, the human rights advocate and style tastemaker nailed the chic asymmetrical checked set flawlessly, taking a bold departure from her usual suiting preferences.
Clooney has opted for tweed skirt suits and coordinated straight-leg sets in the past, but the blue plaid number from Prabal Gurung's Pre-Autumn/Winter '19 took her polished work-ready style up a notch. From the floor-length, wide-leg pants to the ruffly, lace-trimmed silhouette, edgy details paved the way for the seriously eye-catching moment.
Unsurprisingly, Clooney pulled off the unusual outfit with signature style and grace, her lightly curled raven hair cascading past the shoulders, accented with a metallic gold clutch and nude suede pumps. George Clooney clearly got the memo that it was Amal's time to shine, keeping things classic with a fitted navy suit, dress shoes, and a touch of gray scruff.
Everyone from Bella Hadid to Tracee Ellis Ross has made it clear that suits have a spot in their wardrobe rotations for spring, and Clooney's reworked style is a prime example on how to mix up the classic trend. As proven by the commanding date-night look, it's all in the details, and experimental cuts and atypical silhouettes offer a welcomed elevated twist.
