Amal Clooney has an incredibly important job where she needs to be taken seriously, but that doesn’t mean she can’t wear colour or interesting prints for work. Take your cue from the human rights lawyer and inject a little brightness into your working wardrobe with a few colourful frocks.
Clooney is rarely seen out of a pair of heels, but she knows to choose options which are comfortable and practical for those times when she is going to be on her feet all day. Follow her lead and choose block-heeled styles or those with a smaller, lower kitten heel.

Whether for winter or summer, you can’t beat a simple pleated skirt for nailing elegance. It’s one of the best investment options for your workwear wardrobe as the style never dates.
While Clooney is blessed with a figure fit for a supermodel, this outfit is still proof that high-waisted trousers paired with a short jacket will ensure your legs look longer than you ever thought possible.
You wouldn’t think that a casual and comfortable T-shirt would be worn to the office by a human rights lawyer but Clooney is proof that, when styled right, they can look just as smart (and chic) as a button-up shirt.
Dressing top-to-toe in one colour is one of our favourite ways to ensure your outfit looks expensive and well put-together. Matching her coat and jacket, while ensuring her accessories are the same hue as the black piping of her outfit means she looks polished to perfection.

Even if you aren’t as brave as Clooney when it comes to having a colourful wardrobe, the lawyer is proof that just one pop can make a big difference. The red bow on this otherwise monochromatic Gucci dress gives an effortless finish. The same could be done with a bright bag or shoes.
Clooney has plenty of leather handbags in a huge range of colours that are all big enough to hold her work and still look chic. If you want your ensemble to look expensive whilst still being able to house the many things you need for the office, avoid having a bag so small that you also need a fabric tote – a leather option looks far chicer.
There is no one who doesn’t look good in a trouser suit that is tailored to perfection. While this ensemble is toned down in colour compared to many of Clooney’s workwear looks, the classic and perfect fit make it just as head-turning.
Although this rule is certainly not confined to her workwear, Clooney’s trademark waves ensure that she always looks effortlessly polished. Take your cue from her and make time for a blow dry – you won’t regret it.
