Amal Clooney always manages to look elegant yet cool, even when arriving at the airport after a long-haul flight. Returning to L.A. with husband George after a trip to Europe—where she was a guest of honor at the Women of Impact dinner in Switzerland—Clooney landed at LAX looking effortlessly polished in a casual ensemble that included a piece that's become a celebrity favorite for travel—leather pants.
When speaking with Who What Wear last year, Jessica Alba called leather pants as comfortable as sweatpants, admitting she loves to style them with a big cashmere sweater when she travels. Gigi Hadid has also been known to favor the leather take on jeans when hitting the skies. Clooney took a cue from Alba and paired her black leather pants with a wool-cashmere blend sweater—one of the standout pieces from Alberta Ferretti's Pre-Fall 17 collection—and layered it with a long fur-lined military coat. She wore a black cap and now sold-out Stella McCartney velvet ankle boots that instantly elevated her cozy look.
