Amal Clooney was pictured in the Notting Hill neighborhood of London on Tuesday, wearing her favorite distressed jeans, paired with a black crop top that showed a little of her midriff. She donned a sleeveless Tome trenchcoat in plaid. The Citizens of Humanity ripped jeans and vest added to the laid-back vibe, according to Vogue.

The 37-year-old human rights lawyer had a day off. She completed the look with a pair of black peep-toe heels and carried a matching handbag. She added a dash of color to her summery ensemble with pink lipstick. Her makeup was flawless and her raven hair was styled into a natural curl. She also wore Heidi London sunglasses.

The bold plaid print has been seen all over the runways at Oscar de la Renta, Altuzarra and Doce & Gabbana this season.

Amal’s casual outing came after a busy start to the week, with the lawyer appearing at the Supreme Court in London to help argue the case for former residents of the Chagos Islands, who were forcibly removed from their homeland more than 40 years ago. The legal team including Clooney, which is headed by Edward Fitzgerald QC, claimed the former residents of the tiny Indian Ocean islands suffered “a significant injustice” when they were relocated to make way for an airbase.

The London barrister, who married Hollywood actor George Clooney last year, looked elegant in a black-and-white polka dot dress. She kept her long tresses loose in natural waves. Amal looked chic in a Christian Dior vintage skirt and jacket set.

The dress featured a high neckline and a hemline that ended just above the knees. The suit had a slight peplum styling on the waist with statement pockets. Amal kept her accessories very simple in the form of a smart leather handbag by Dior, matching heels in suede by Prada and a pair of large sunglasses by the same brand. The barrister chatted to colleagues as she left the iconic building. Her makeup was flawless and consisted of pink lipstick, while she wore small earrings.
