Although Amal may be best known in the gossip columns for her relationship with a certain George Clooney, she is highly regarded in the law world for her work as a human rights barrister. The London based lawyer, activist, and author has worked on high profile cases including that of Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange.
Her high-powered job demands a similarly high-powered dress code, and Amal pulls it off every time. Making business wear look chic and stylish is tricky but somehow Amal manages it with ease.
If you’re struggling with smart office dressing you’ll be pleased to hear we’re here to help. We’ve tracked down some of Amal’s best outfits and found where you can find some copycats items on the high street.
From office-appropriate shift dresses to the perfect everyday court shoe, we’ve got it covered.
1) Make Your Suit Chic
Suits often get a bad rap for being unflattering and dated but they’ve had quite the resurgence on the catwalks and red carpets in the last few seasons. Amal looks like she means serious business in this slate grey, pinstripe number. Style with a simple shirt, pointed grey courts and a classic black bag.
2) Match Your Skirt To Your Jacket
Although white may not be the most practical option it is certainly chic. Take a cue from Amal and pair a white jacket with either a white A-line or skater style skirt. For an elegant look like Amal’s choose nude heels, tortoiseshell glasses and a colour popping handbag.
3) Don’t Be Afraid Of Colour
Your office wardrobe needn’t be a see of neutrals. Incorporate colour popping pieces like a bright shirt dress to bring some colour into your work attire.
4) Invest In Statement Dresses
Simple shaped dressed make getting ready in the morning super easy. Think like Amal and partner with clean cut accesories for the simple route to sophisticated dressing.
