Let Shiv Roy’s Style Be Your Fall Work Inspiration

Let Shiv Roy’s Style Be Your Fall Work Inspiration

If you haven’t gotten the memo, Succession is the TV show to watch right now. The HBO drama, which centers around Logan Roy, the head of a media conglomerate and his highly dysfunctional family, is the “water cooler” show of the moment. What has captured many viewers’ attention, besides the smart writing and sociopathic characters, is Roy’s youngest child and only daughter Shiv. 

Shivon “Shiv” Roy, played masterfully by actress Sarah Snook, aesthetic reflects her sharp businesswoman mind. Whether she will be the successor to our father’s company has yet to be seen, but her wardrobe already reflects a mindset of empowerment. And while we don’t condone the backstabbing that her character commits, we do support emulating her streamlined wardrobe to tap into her girl boss energy.

If you break down Shiv’s style, is quite easy to pull off and as timeless as another one of our favorite TV characters, Rachel Green. Her clothing palette is mostly neutral with some autumnal accents, and her silhouettes are both simple and sleek. And although her closet might be full of luxurious designer brands, there is no need for yours to be. Check out what style staples you need to embrace your inner Shiv.

Turtlenecks

We imagine Shiv’s closet (which must be epic) to have an entire side dedicated to turtlenecks. It’s her signature piece, and we love how she has made something so simple become such a statement. Shiv tends to wear this piece by itself and tucked into pants or a skirt, but it also works as a great layering piece under a slip dress or top.

Although black, white, and gray are versatile; a fall color like teal matches just as easily and will add some dimension to your look.

Shortsleeve options are great to prevent overheating when you put something like a blazer or leather jacket on top.

High-Wasted Pants

Damn, this woman sure knows how to wear a pair of pants. In recent years, pants have received a lot of attention thanks to the comeback of pleats and the wide-leg trend. Shiv prefers styles that sit higher on her waist to give her a tailored and polished appearance. The pants demand attention and respect, just like Shiv (and any woman for that matter) should have in a boardroom.

A tapered leg is a great option if you prefer a slimmer leg. It’s like the skinny jeans of pants.

Double-breasted blazers

Shiv’s looks are certainly menswear-inspired, but she makes sure there is a feminine or sexy spin to every outfit. She wears tailored double-breasted blazers and adds accessories, like a belt, to show off her shape. To imitate her style, look for blazers that have structured shoulders and some naping in the waist to create an hourglass silhouette.

Silk Blouses

Almost as strong as her turtleneck game is her button-down top collection. Fabrics like silk and satin and colors like rust and rose, present a softer side of the character. Take note–instead of buying yet another white cotton shirt, choose one in a seasonal shade or in a stand-out material to jazz up your look.

A pale pink or purple shade adds a feminine touch, and the shiny satin makes this piece a little dressier too.

“Girl Boss” Accessories

No outfit is complete without a few accessories. Shiv keeps her jewelry classic and simple with delicate chain necklaces and small hoops. She plays into the corporate wardrobe with a briefcase that keeps her papers secure while she runs from a meeting in midtown Manhattan to a helicopter ride to the Hamptons. The only time she will add a busy pattern to her look is when she throws on a loose scarf. All these small details are what keeps us tuning in week after week. Oh, that and the crazy family drama.
