Style Crush: Olivia Pope


Not only have I recently become obsessed with the ABC show Scandal, but I’ve also been drooling over Olivia Pope’s wardrobe! This woman always looks so flawlessly put together. I’ve noticed that she tends to stick with neutrals (grays, taupe, lots of white and ivory) and the occasional washed out color (blush pink or baby blue, for example). Since she runs in political circles, her wardrobe choices need to be safe and conservative. Her outfit is always classic and easy on the eyes, and her jewelry is always feminine with just the right amount of sparkle – she never wears anything over the top.

While Kerry Washington’s character typically wears high end designers on the show, I pulled together some much more affordable options for achieving her office look. I’ll do a separate post on her casual style – this woman takes it to a whole different level!

What do you think? Would you wear any of these looks in the office?
