10 Amal Clooney Workwear Outfits I Want to Copy
If I had to sum up Amal Clooney's style in one word, it'd be perfection. Her red-carpet looks are always flawless (no gown needed), her street style is impeccable, and her date-night looks are the perfect marriage of sexy and elegant glam. TBH, I'm still obsessing over the outfits that she wore to all of her pre-wedding events back in 2014. And her office style is just as fabulous, whether she's heading to court or running to a business luncheon.
It only makes sense that I'm gathering little inspiration from Amal for a mid-winter wardrobe makeover. I've already discovered a few clever ways to make a black pantsuit feel like new again and how to jazz up my office-ready shift dresses. Click through the gallery ahead for all of the office (and regular life) inspiration you need.

Add Bold Prints
Upgrade a classic silhouette like a pencil skirt with a bold print ($180; mytheresa.com). Follow Clooney's lead and stick to a darker color palette that feels on-season.
Find the Perfect Fit
Make sure your pants are the perfect length by investing in trousers made specifically for you. Petites will love New York & Company's fitted work pants ($70; nyandcompany.com). Tall ladies can grab a pair from the ASOS Tall collection ($40; asos.com). And Lane Bryant's a plus-size favorite ($60; lanebryant.com).
Find a Carry-Everything Bag
Amal Clooney's work style always includes a large bag to hold all of her essentials. One of her favorites is from Michael Kors's Bancroft collection — and a few colors are on sale right now ($559; michaelkors.com).
Skip the Button-Down Blouses
If you're bored of button-down blouses, a soft turtleneck ($22; everlane.com) will also work wonders underneath that pinstripe suit.
Re-Think Your Go-To Shoes
Black pumps will match everything in your closet, but we'd argue that a great pair of python-print heels ($150; zappos.com) are just as versatile.
Pay Attention to the Details
Invest in a blazer with unexpected details like velvet fabric ($265; neimanmarcus.com) or even fun fringe.
Reach For Classic Prints
Sure, leopard is a huge trend right now. But it honestly never goes out of style. So add a few dresses ($79; nordstrom.com) like Amal's to your work wardrobe.
Try a Pop of Color
Black and white is a no-brainer. But don't forget to add a hint of color. You can tie a skinny scarf ($35; nordstrom.com) around your neck to easily mimic Clooney's look.
Don't Be Afraid to Match
Forget that old rule that says matchy matchy is a bad thing. A coordinating suit makes getting dressed that much easier. Plus, you can always mix and match tops with a perfect tweed skirt ($225; intermix.com).
