Most of us have two main goals when it comes to figuring out what to wear to the airport: finding something that’s comfortable and will get you through security quickly. We’ve broken down airport style in a slew of different ways here at Who What Wear, from what TSA recommends not to wear to the travel basics everyone should own, so it’s safe to say we’ve written about a wide variety of travel outfits. However, Amal Clooney still managed to surprise us with her latest airport look.
Photographed at the airport in Rome, Italy, Clooney wore a head-to-toe designer ensemble, including Alberta Ferretti Crocheted Virgin Wool Eyelet Minidress ($1750) and Suede Over-the-Knee Boots ($1295). Her ’70s vibe is definitely chic and on-trend, but I couldn’t help but notice that over-the-knee boots seem quite impractical for traveling. Have you ever gone to the airport in over-the-knee boots? A quick poll around the Who What Wear office yielded a resounding no. Not only would they be more difficult to slide on and off for TSA, but their unwieldy size could prove difficult when trying to squeeze them into a bin. Clooney can certainly do her thing—and do it stylishly—but perhaps we’ll be copying this outfit when we don’t have a plane to catch. Scroll down to see her outfit and shop similar pieces.
