Dressed to impress: Did Lindsay Lohan win over judges with her conservative courtroom attire

She's been in and out of court so many times, she could be mistaken for a lawyer.

So it comes as no surprise Lindsay Lohan has learned a thing or two about dressing the part.

The Mean Girls star, who appeared at Los Angeles Airport Courthouse yesterday, was praised at a probation progress report and told she 'appears to be doing well' by the judge.

While she has been adhering to her strict community service and therapy schedule, it couldn't hurt that Lindsay appears to have nailed her look.

The 25-year-old opted for a conservative outfit, wearing high-waisted trousers and a twin set – a far cry from her usual casual attire.

Back in March, Lindsay appeared in court to accept a plea deal in the case which saw her accused of stealing a necklace from a
Venice jewellery store.

She wore a short leather mini-dress by by Raquel Allegra.

While she was most likely making a statement – the designer is famous for customising T-shirts once worn by inmates of LA County Jail – it could hardly be considered appropriate.

But Lindsay's attire – and hemlines – have evolved as she spends more time in court – no doubt a strategic move to win favour with judges.

In December, she was lauded with praise at a brief probation hearing – this time wearing beige trousers and a buttoned-up cardigan.

In November, Lindsay was pictured looking the picture of lady-like elegance in a polka-dot navy blue dress.

She was sentence to 30 days in jail but served just a few hours.

A month before that, she wore an eggshell blue dress and gold peep-toe heels, when she was told to serve 16
hours at the county morgue.

Her make-up made her appear pale and the outfit was evocative of a 1960's housewife.

Lindsay now has until February 22nd to complete another 15 days at the morgue and five more therapy sessions. After that, she has until March 29 to
perform 14 more days of community service at the morgue and attend
another five therapy sessions.

If Lohan adheres to the schedule, her
probation in the 2007 DUI case will terminate at the end of March. Her
probation in the theft case will be downgraded to summary,
non-supervised probation.

And if her wardrobe is anything to go by, she will certainly continue to impress judges.
