Amal Clooney Just Wore the #1 Dress-and-Boot Pairing for Winter

When deciding what to wear to the airport, I always have two questions in mind. First: Is it easy to wear through the security check? Second: Is it easy to use the restroom in? Things like complicated footwear, jumpsuits, and too-tight skinny trousers are some of the biggest offenders that don’t pass the test, but Amal Clooney is out here throwing caution to the wind and making me deeply reconsider. For us, it’s an outfit that we can see ourselves living in this autumn. 

As we enter the colder months of the year, we’re on the hunt for any outfit combination that makes getting dressed in the morning easier, and this particular formula is one to follow. Knit dresses are a chic yet insulating way to dress for cooler days, and can be easily styled with all footwear – but we like the knit-dress-and-boots combination the best. Whether you’re jetting off, or simply runnings errands, copy and paste this formula for stress-free autumn outfits. Scroll down to see her controversial airport shoes, and shop more dress-and-boot pairings.
