Why you need a turtleneck dress in your autumnal wardrobe, according to Amal Clooney

No matter where she’s going, whether she’s dressing up in sequins or dressing down in denim, Amal Clooney always looks suitably stylish.

Her most recent ensemble is no exception; she was spotted with husband George Clooney at a station in New York, striking the perfect balance between smart and casual, wearing a cream knitted turtleneck dress by Stella McCartney.

The human rights lawyer styled the asymmetric dress with a pair of over-the-knee boots, plus oversized sunglasses and a co-ordinating cream bag.

One of the reasons why Clooney’s style is so sought-after is thanks to her versatile approach to dressing that focuses on wardrobe classics, which can be styled in a variety of different ways.

Her latest look, perfect for the new season, follows this same pattern; the boots add an edge for stomping around New York City in, but could easily be swapped out for a pair of classic courts for work, or strappy sandals for evening. Take style cues and follow Clooney’s lead by investing in a knitted turtleneck dress of your own to wear now and love forever.

Clooney is a prime example that investing in timeless pieces is one of the easiest steps to make when wanting to take a more sustainable approach to fashion. Shopping smarter, by choosing styles that stand the test of time and can be worn repeatedly, rather than adhering to passing trends, means you avoid over-buying and wasteful spending.

Alongside shopping more mindfully, keeping your wardrobe organized and clutter-free is also key to creating a capsule wardrobe and making sure you get maximum wear out of your clothes.

Fanny Moizant, president and co-founder of pre-loved designer site Vestiaire Collective, advises: “Start by splitting up your wardrobe by season. Clear out the previous season so you can focus on what you’ll be wearing for the next few months , and then ask yourself these questions: is the item something you still wear? Is it a timeless classic? Does it still fit you?

“Ensure it’s something you love or has a purpose. If your answer to all the questions is ‘no’ then it’s time to resell. Be ruthless. If you haven’t worn something for over a year then let it go.”
