Leave It To Amal To Make Distressed Jeans Impossibly Ladylike

Have you ever looked into your overflowing closet for something — anything — to wear, only to come up short? Of course you have. Fortunately, there's an easy solve, and it comes courtesy of Amal Clooney. Since she's basically a problem-solver by profession (who frequently deals with much more serious problems than having nothing to wear), you should pay attention.
Building your outfit around a pair of statement shoes is a no-brainer way to get dressed. Clooney's snakeskin horsebit Gucci boots are such showstoppers, they don't need much else. She cleverly dressed them down with super-distressed jeans, then played off the colors of her footwear with a camel chain-trim sweater and off-white leather jacket. Her eponymous tote by Ballin — in the same rich tan hue as her shoes — is a particularly stylish finishing touch. And, best of all, you can steal the look even if you don’t have a purse named after you.
