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 wearing 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 an 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 also 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 to shop similar pieces.
