If Washington’s bars seem somewhat emptier on Friday night than usual, there’s likely a good reason: Everyone is at home binge-watching season three of House of Cards. The Netflix original series, which will be released on Friday, has become an image of DC fashion, particularly through the character of Claire Underwood, with her black sheath dresses, five-inch heels, and always classy accessories.
Claire’s power look is one that many a Washington woman would like to find in her own wardrobe. That’s why websites like LookLive offer the option for viewers to “shop while you watch,” purchasing the exact pieces seen onscreen—or, if you can’t afford Claire’s $1,300 Yves Saint Laurent handbag, buy similar and “bargain” options from retailers such as Zara, Joe Fresh, and Ann Taylor.
LookLive announced on Wednesday that it will add the full season three wardrobe to its online stock right after airtime on Friday, adding to the portion of season two apparel already available. So enjoy the binge watching, and make sure you’ve got two laptops handy: one for streaming, another for shopping.
