Style Inspiration: Claire Underwood

In case you missed it, everyone’s favorite political drama is back on February 27th! That’s right, House of Cards is coming soon to a Netflix account near you and I can hardly wait to be a part of Frank Underwood’s brilliantly conniving schemes once again. But as much as I love Frank Underwood, what I really can’t wait for are Claire Underwood’s brilliant fashion choices.

I love her style. I love it "more than sharks love blood."

To start, Claire’s wardrobe has a lot of chic, dark neutrals like black and grey. The palette she implements makes matching and pairing very easy. She chooses staples like button-up shirts, crew neck tee shirts (likely made of cotton that breathe on humid summer days in D.C.) & sheath dresses that flatter throughout.

Get the look.

Even Claire’s footwear and accessories are so simple and flawless that she gives a whole new meaning to effortless beauty. Heels with gorgeous lines won’t weight her down when walking out to her town car and activewear that is more Catwoman than first lady and makes her standout in only the best ways possible. (Imagine ordering a latte with a sleek post-jog Mrs. Underwood?! You’d notice her, wouldn’t you?!)

Get the look.

Last but not least, Claire’s choices for outerwear make me grateful for a season like winter where long jackets and coats with sashes are necessary. Coats are not often the lusted after items I tend to put on my wish list but time after time, I find myself wishing I could spend a day in Claire’s closet.

Get the look.
