We’ve already learned a ton of fashion and style lessons from Amal Clooney since she came on the scene and now it’s obvious she isn’t done schooling us just yet. The star stepped out of her Cannes hotel with her husband, George, last Saturday in a rainbow Valentino dress. Rather than complement her colourful dress with dark accessories, Amal chose to completely ditch black or even dark brown and instead wore a taupe Sarah Flint block heels and a fringed marsala bag. The result was one of the most refreshing styling I have seen in recent times.
Here are 3 important lessons I walked away with from Amal’s uber chic look.
1| Black isn’t the only colour that’s super chic: Amal opted for other neutrals which blended perfectly with her multicoloured dress.

3| You can never go wrong flaunting your best asset: The tailoring of this dress is flawless yet nothing stands out more than Amal’s perfect legs; which I believe are her best asset. The fit-and-flare cut really defines Amal’s tiny waist while the short length of the dress allowed it to expose and elongate her legs even more. Amal is well known for wearing clothes with the perfect fit for her body type, this is something every aspiring stylista must master!
There you have it ladies…Amal is style-smart, be like Amal!
