Can We Briefly Focus on Shiv’s Wardrobe on This Season of ‘Succession’?

The HBO collection Succession is a font of many issues—intrafamilial subterfuge, swearing, ingenious new methods to completely injury the individuals round you—however the present’s consideration to trend has all the time been considered one of its most notable parts, from wannabe cool man Kendall Roy’s costly baseball hats to beleaguered lawyer Gerri Kellman’s signature blazers and pearls. No person on Succession was extra modern (or extra rigorously costumed), although, than the scheming, dissatisfied youngest daughter, Shiv—till this season, not less than.

To be truthful, Shiv’s type has been constantly evolving. In a 2019 New Yorker article, Rachel Syme wrote of the character’s season-two look: “Turtleneck sweaters and high-waisted slacks have not often seemed so ruthless.” As Syme notes, even then Shiv sometimes seemed “extra like a latest law-school graduate in a midsize agency than a giant shot ready to take over an empire,” however season three ushered in a brand new low—or was it a brand new excessive for Shiv-related sartorial discourse? All of the sudden, Shiv’s fits have been low-cost trying; her clothes for large, necessary occasions have been oddly fitted; her complete sartorial sense of self gave the impression to be hanging by a thread. Paradoxically, Sarah Snook, the actress enjoying Shiv, seemed higher than ever, however her costuming gave the impression to be preventing her at each flip.
