Anyone who watches Scandal on ABC knows Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, wears her professional attire like a total boss, and we'll admit to tuning into the juicy series for its amazing fashion (and the drama, natch). Starting next week, we'll be able to take home similar styles for ourselves when the collection launches in The Limited stores and online Sept. 23.
Kerry Washington had a large part in designing the collection alongside Scandal's costume designer Lyn Paolo, who described the designs as "aspirational, sophisticated and feminine" in an interview with People StyleWatch.
Olivia's signature sleek outerwear, feminine blouses and wide-legged trousers dominate the 78-piece collection, and most of the pieces are interchangeable, so we're pretty sure professional ladies will snag the office-ready pieces fast.
While obviously inspired by the show's main character, the collection was also greatly inspired by the fans of the show, Paolo told People StyleWatch: "Our inspiration came from the fans, our amazing Gladiators, who were asking for a way to look like [the character]."
Washington, in particular, is pretty jazzed about the coats in the collection, describing them as a way her character manages to stay polished and put together: "Olivia is too busy to follow trends and looks for key pieces to incorporate into her wardrobe — look at her amazing outerwear collection! It's important to have a statement coat that carries across seasons."
We couldn't agree more. And with prices starting at just $49, it's safe to say looking like Olivia Pope just got a lot more affordable.
