Claire Underwood may just be television’s most sought after bad gal. And it’s not only because of her great portrayal as the power hungry politician but for her impeccable style as well. Played by actress Robin Wright, Mrs Underwood has given us much to envy in all the seasons of House Of Cards.

There’s more than one reason why this show has become one of Netflix’s most-watched series. She sure knows how to make her audience love her and at the same time fear her, which is why people keep coming back for more.

Claire Underwood’s Style Breakdown

Her poise and nonchalant demeanor doubled with a style that kills make her a formidable force to be reckoned with. Underwood’s taste is minimal and crisp but she often takes risks with silhouettes, making every look into a very powerful statement.

Her sartorial palette usually consists of nudes, navys, blacks, greys, and whites—the ultimate minimal colour wheel. She knows just how to keep her ensembles perfectly feminine and strong, while adding interesting details to her otherwise clean silhouettes. In season 4, Claire was seen sporting military details in many of her outfits along with a grown out bob.

We take a look at what makes Claire Underwood such a perfect example of power dressing done right and show you how to steal her style.

Outerwear & Suits


Claire’s choice of outerwear extends to trench coats and woolen coats in black, nude or grey. For the office, she keeps it classy with jacket-suits, mostly in tweed.

Work & Evening Wear


She’s almost always seen in midi dresses when she’s busy working or manipulating. These form-fitting pieces that show off her figure tastefully are where the power and confidence are most reflected. Great tailoring in classic styles can make you look like quite the boss—always remember that!

Accessories Game Strong


Claire’s all about the minimal life. She has numerous pairs of pumps in neutrals and blacks with bags to match. No flashy jewellery here, Underwood’s elegant hairdo, well-heeled stance, and practical handbags scream business without looking boring.
