Scandalous Style: Olivia Pope’s Wardrobe Inspiration

I think any Scandal fan in America would say that besides the amazing story line, fantastic actors, and pretty much everything else that makes that show so addictive, Kerry Washington’s outfits as Olivia Pope are definitely worth tuning in for. And as a working woman myself, I found some ways to glam up the easily drab articles of clothing that constitute “business casual.”

With the budget of a college student, but with all the determination of Olivia Pope, here are some fashionable and affordable ways to emulate the master fixer’s wardrobe. I’ve taken the liberty of creating mock outfits that are (mostly) reasonably affordable to wear.

As us fans know, Olivia Pope’s work wardrobe screams “It’s been handled.”

Even a Gladiator has to sleep. Ms. Pope, of course, always does it in style.

Does anyone wear a gown like Kerry Washington Olivia? Some of my favorite episodes of the series involve seeing the cast dress up in formal wear.

Don’t think I forgot about her infamous jackets! I’ve included jackets ranging from active wear to trench coats. The cheapest piece here is $15 and the most expensive is over $600. Can you tell the difference?

Luckily, like the ever versatile Ms. Pope, all of these items are able to be worn in the fall and can be dressed up or down with a pair of  heels or boyfriend jeans.

Head on over to our Polyvore to check out the price tags on these looks. And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter as we live-tweet the first episode of the new season, tonight at 10pm!
