Amal Clooney wears a metallic gold jumpsuit to speak at a conference

What’s the secret to Amal Clooney’s style? Relying on timeless classics, again and again. Whether she’s wearing a good pair of denim jeans or dressing up in sequins, the human rights lawyer always looks polished and sophisticated; she knows what suits her and steers clear from passing trends.

Her latest look is a prime example of her approach to dressing. Clooney took to the stage during the global ‘We Choose Earth Tour’ conference in Madrid, wearing a stylish yellow-gold jumpsuit, featuring an asymmetric pleated body.

While the one-shouldered style could easily be worn for an evening soirée, Clooney’s look felt workwear appropriate thanks to the slightly cropped, cigarette-style trousers and well-tailored fit. She styled her jumpsuit with matching pointed court heels, Cartier jewelery and a cream clutch bag.

When it came to her beauty look, she kept her make-up fresh and dewy to avoid looking too overdone for the event, while her signature rich waves were swept to one side over her shoulder.

Clooney’s penchant for jumpsuits hasn’t gone unnoticed; she’s regularly seen wearing one in both professional and red-carpet environments. The humble one-piece is a capsule classic – praised for its versatility and ease – providing a quick and simple way to look elegant, and makes a polished alternative to a dress.

Clooney also leans on the style for more formal dressing too, proving that the jumpsuit is a wardrobe staple for all occasions. For a dressier affair, Clooney added a pair of white gold-and-diamond chandelier earrings from Cartier to a wide-leg style.
