In case you were wondering, business chic is still going strong, and yes, it can be made to look totally modern and not stuffy.
Just look at Amal Clooney's latest outfit. The 37-year-old human rights lawyer stepped out in London on Monday morning donning a red skirt suit that pretty much makes us want to rethink our office attire.
The ensemble featured a form-fitting, double-breasted jacket and a matching pencil skirt that hit just above the knee. Both the top and the bottom were adorned with a burgundy velvet trim, for that added bit of luxe. Clooney paired the two-piece with sheer black tights, black and gold Salvatore Ferragamo pumps and a black Dolce & Gabbana handbag.
And like any woman with a good sense of style, Amal knows a full look isn't just limited to the clothing and accessories — makeup and hair play a big part, too.
Mrs. Clooney left her dark locks down with a slight wave, to keep the look from being too extreme, and kept her makeup fairly simple, with lightly lined eyes, dark, plush lashes and a red lip. Her nails were painted dark, adding some vampiness to her look.
Now that, friends, is an example of good power dressing.
