There are many common traits successful women share, one of them being a tried-and-true, no fuss uniform that inherently says, “I’m here to get shit done.” Like a power suit, striking red lip, or versatile bag, these style ingredients make getting ready both effortless and chic, while carving out more time for things like, say, running an empire.

As minimalist wardrobes in the workplace continue to catch on like wildfire, it’s no surprise that CEOs and multihyphenate celebs alike are frequently opting for one, does-it-all style: the girl boss bun.

The look emphasises your features, making cheekbones look sharp enough to fire or hire — and it frames a jaw bone that's scheduled to defy.
