Hint: It involves very good boots.

Amal Clooney is a highly respected international human rights lawyer who definitely has a closet filled with fancy pants. But sometimes she too, like the rest of us, wants to wear no pants at all. The no-pants movement is a little easier to get behind when there isn’t snow or temperatures below 30 in the forecast, but that is precisely why knee-high boots exist. At least, that’s what we’d like to think. 

For her anniversary date with George Clooney this past September, Amal wore a pink top, a short black miniskirt and black knee-high boots. It’s a look so good we haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. Of course Clooney looked amazing, but the boots were easily the star of her whole outfit. 

Black knee-high boots are a fall and winter outfit MVP because they make it possible to wear your favorite summer skirts all throughout the cold. And, although bare upper thigh like Clooney’s won’t necessarily be possible come December, you can easily throw on a pair of tights with any knee high boots and miniskirt combo for a weather-appropriate look. 

Despite Clooney’s outfit appearing in all of our dreams as of late, no one has been able to identify the exact brand that made her perfect pair. Considering they’re probably expensive, this is definitely a blessing in disguise — especially because Nordstrom’s Fall Sale has every black knee-high boot we could possibly want for well under $150. So if you’ve always wanted to channel Amal Clooney (who hasn’t?), now’s your chance. Shop our favorite on-sale black knee-high boot styles below.
