Succession is back, with all its backstabbing, big business and brothers at war. But it’s the sister we’re most interested in: Shiv Roy’s Succession wardrobe is pure power dressing goals – and credit is due to the Succession costume designer, Michelle Matland, who dressed this cunning character in the go-to luxury fashion for the understated super-rich. Succession style isn’t about hair extensions and bling, but power suits with soft knits, neutral colours and statement jewellery.
Think Kamala Harris, think soft power, think rich.
But you don’t need to be the heiress to a media empire to get the Succession style. Scroll down for ideas and inspiration for Shiv Roy’s Succession wardrobe.
1. Steal Shiv Roy’s smart-casual look
Recreate these staple pieces from Shiv’s wardrobe in Succession. Get a pair of wide-leg trousers, a black polo neck with the most subtle of details, a chunky belt and a simple necklace, drop earrings and you’ve got yourself a look fit for any evening event you’re invited too. Champagne flute not included.
2. Get Shiv Roy’s wedding dress
It may not have been the fairytale wedding, but Shiv Roy’s Succession style wedding dress was magical. Our Emily wedding dress features a similar deep V-neck and long, lace sleeves. Wear with a statement pendant for the ultimate power coupling and you’ve got a luxury fashion look for your wedding day (without the eye-watering bill).
3. Find a Succession-style power suit
Shiv could run a masterclass in power dressing for women. She knows there’s nothing like a trouser suit in soft tonals to show you mean business. Try a brighter version of Shiv’s grey power suit and blouse with our sky-blue Lauren blazer, tailored trousers and pussy bow blouse; paired with simple black and gold accessories.
4. Copy “off-duty” Succession Shiv’s style
Shiv’s luxury fashion doesn’t end in boardroom. Recreate her casualwear by pairing an elegant overcoat, tan tote bag and matching flats with a striped cardi and stretch jeans for a look which is comfortable yet classy. You may not be flying on a private jet, but this is a look that will fly.
5. Colour block the Shiv Roy way
So Shiv Roy doesn’t really do colour, but her camel-coloured tailoring is the luxury fashion version of head-to-toe dressing. Get the look with our bestselling linen jacket, trousers, and matching waistcoat, paired with a crisp white blouse, gold earrings, white Superga trainers and cream tote bag.
