Thank you, Amal Clooney, for demoing the secret to wearing flares with flair. The bell-bottom trend can be tricky to pull off, but since Clooney's style is consistently on-point, we're not surprised that she knows how to rock the cut with ease. While making rounds in New York City, the eternally stylish human rights lawyer subdued her graphic Giambattista Valli trousers with a black shell top, tote bag, and oversize frames. The '70s movement seems to be a favorite of Clooney, who was born at the tail end of the decade and has done her part to modernize the retro trend on more than a few occasions.

So, what's her trick to getting it right every time? In order to nail the exaggerated silhouette, length is key: Anything too long can look messy and anything too short may appear ill fitting. Clooney's perfect hemline hovers just millimeters above the pavement, with help from the right heels.

We think we'll go ahead and add this look to her ever-growing list of hits.
