Jasmine in Blue Jasmine
Ok, so she's not exactly a working woman, but if you're looking to project an image of expensive polish, Jasmine's look is peerless. From Hermes totes to Chanel jackets, Jasmine wears her discreet chic on her sleeve. Invest in a serious bag and elegant statement jewellery to achieve her quietly luxurious style.
Claire Underwood from House Of Cards
Caustic, ruthless and undeniably terrifying Claire Underwood's wardrobe is as fiercely intimidating as the woman herself. Go for crisp poplin shirts, razor cut tailoring and angular necklines and heels to nail the look.

The archetypical 90's career girl, Miranda's wardrobe was always the least glitzy of her girl gang, but credit where credit's due - she always brought colour into her office wardrobe and experimented with cut and accessories.
Pepper Potts from The Iron Man Series
Pepper's look is quiet and corporate with a pared back fashion angle. She favours various shades of black, white and grey, creating an inter-changeable office wardrobe.
Ellen Parsons from Damages
Ellen's ingenue office look combines a sweet femininity - note the bows - with strict suiting to reflect her ambition.
Katie Cox in Burn After Reading
Everything about Katie's office ensembles reflects her professional prowess. From the sharp cut bob to the discreet pearls and sunnies, she radiates success. Shame about her lovelife.
