Take an Office Style Lesson from Amal Clooney and Her Handbags

These bags all work beautifully with a business formal wardrobe

We probably work in a wide range of office environments, and I suspect that the majority of them probably do not demand much in the way of bouclé power suits. But for those who feel overly stressed by the expectations of their office dress code, take a tip or two from Amal Clooney. Watch as she skillfully alternates between bright, eye-popping hues and subdued neutrals. Note how she always carries a bag that could easily substitute for a briefcase while she’s on the clock. See how much can be concealed by a decent trench coat! If you’ve got a business conference on the horizon, or a big presentation coming up, channel Amal Clooney.

Observe: This is what Amal wore to the UN in NYC to speak about ISIS. If you are ever summoned to give an impassioned speech at the UN, try to wear something that is at least half as sophisticated as this outfit.

This is another designer bag that works especially well with a fancy business wardrobe: the Michael Kors Bancroft Bag.
