Leave it to Amal Clooney to remind us that less really is more. The style stunner once again looked flawless in a near head-to-toe off-white ensemble as she took a stroll around Columbia University's campus in New York City.

Though Ms. Clooney has recently opted for bright pops of color and bold, can't-be-missed statement pieces, for today's occasion she donned a subdued combination of a knee-length pencil skirt, a minimalist top, and a cream coat. Her city-slicking outerwear is not just utilitarian, but perfectly tailored.

The winning secret? Colorful accessories. She completed the look by carrying a structured ladylike red Tod's bag (which nicely accented her red lip) and slipped on a pair of floral pointed-toe kitten heels with punches of green and orange. Understated elegance never looked so good.
