How to Dress Like Shiv From 'Succession'—Without a Roy Bank Balance

The art of power dressing is not dead—and if you want proof, just look at Succession's Shiv Roy (played by Sarah Snook).

In the HBO black comedy, she cuts a chic but powerful figure in the boardroom while fighting for her place in the family conglomerate Waystar Royco.

If you're looking for return-to-office-wear after an extended period of working from your bed in trackpants, look no further than Shiv for business attire inspiration.

Here's how to get some of her favourite looks for less.

Five Business Wear Outfits Inspired by Shiv Roy in 'Succession'

1. The Modern Suit
