Scandal. Is. Back. And if you’re anything like us, you’re more than ready for some Mr. President moments and an abundance of Olivia Pope power ensembles. So cue up the DVR and grab a legal pad. We’re about to school you on five style lessons we learned from the ultimate boss lady.Olivia Pope Style on Scandal

Invest in Separates
Olivia’s on-the-go look? Simple layers. Think textured jackets paired with feminine blouses.

Less Is More
This political fixer keeps her accessories simple. Follow her lead – stick to understated jewelry and neutral, forever handbags.

Make a Statement
When it comes to fall style, it’s what’s on the outside that counts. Do your best Olivia and top your tailored power pieces with a statement coat.

White Is Always in Season
That Labor Day rule? Break it. Ms. Pope defies the naysayers and wears white year-round. Go all out with a head-to-toe look.

Loungewear Can Be Luxe
No, we don’t mean college sweats. We’re talking cashmere, cashmere, cashmere. Accessorize your comfy dressing like Olivia with a glass of red wine and popcorn.

On stage, there were hilarious presenters (check out Jimmy Kimmel’s roasting of Matthew McConaughey here), a surprising kiss between Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston, and a Breaking Bad sweep. But the real winners of the night were on the red carpet. See who made my top-five list below.
