Aug 25, 2015

When it comes to style a new, but undoubtedly permanent face that will be referred to for many years to come, deservedly, for her understanding of chic, timeless style is Amal Clooney. A London-based Lebanese-British lawyer, activist, and author, she specializes in international law, criminal law, human rights, and extradition, and clearly knows her way around the closet.

While we may not all be wasp thin, tall and have a mane of hair advertisers dream about, there are many take-aways each of us can apply to our wardrobe choices. First and for most, keep it simple. Whether it is a dress or the accessories she selects, she doesn’t make it complicated and rather allows the woman she is shine. Second, find the balance. If she wears signature print pants, she pairs it with a simple solid top. She makes a statement subtly, but isn’t brash or abrasive. And lastly, don’t forget the accessories, whether a wide-brimmed hat, oversized sunnies, a quality tote or statement heels, each item completes the outfit and but doesn’t overwhelm it. Perhaps you will notice a few other style lessons as you peruse. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks Shannon. I love Amal’s style. My estimation of George Clooney went up whenhe started going out with her. She the epitome of a modern woman – sophisticated, beautiful, feminine, smart and ambitious. She has a great sense of style.

  2. Amal has been an elegant inspiration since the first time I saw her. You’re right – hers is an uncomplicated, sophisticated style that anyone can emulate.

  3. Shannon, I am so glad you have featured Amal!
    She has such a classic, effortless beauty about her.
    For me, it is Amal’s accomplishment and intellect that is most attractive. She is certainly an inspiration.

  4. So pleased to see Amal Clooney making it on to the Style inspiration of my favourite blog! I had her feature on mine too recently, to show how to get her style for less. http://www.highflyerstyle.com/amal-clooney-high-flyer-style-2/ So happy to be on the same wavelength as you Shannon 🙂

    I love your blog! I look forward to your email every Friday morning & loved the quote you used today “She had not known the weight until she felt the freedom.” May you be blessed with good health & inspiration to blog for many years to come x

    1. Agree, Shannon and Tanya. Love that quote, resonates so much with me. Amal’s style is wonderful. I am certainly, not tall, thin with a mane of dark hair but her style choices are ones anyone can emulate. Plus, the fact that she crosses so many different looks, great inspiration. Thanks for sharing Shannon. Glad to hear you are loving your new home and town.
