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.
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.
