As our regular readers are already well aware, we've been long-time admirers of Amal Clooney's style. We've waxed poetic about her penchant for putting together chic off-duty and date-night ensembles. We've swooned over her stunning red carpet looks and her striking wedding guest attire.

From the "grandma" look fashion girls are prioritizing to the only print that matters this summer, these are the trends Amal Clooney has given her stamp of approval. And the best part? You can acquire them all on a fast-fashion budget. Keep scrolling to shop three Amal Clooney–backed trends for $150 or less.

Though zebra print is currently trending, rest assured that leopard print isn't going anywhere for the foreseeable future. Gain inspiration from Clooney and go all out with a midi dress to take a subtler approach with a clutch in the pattern if that's more your style.
