Olivia Pope Style

It’s Thursday, so you know what that means….Scandal! Yes, I am a Scandal fan. The show is intense, interesting, entertaining and addictive. What I like the most is the crisis management capabilities of Olivia and her staff. This aspect of the show interest me more than the love affair between Olivia Pope and President Grant. I blame that on my passion for marketing psychology. It’s all about how the public perceives you or your brand. Well let me get to why I wrote this post, her style. I am obsessed with the tailored business looks that Kerry Washington wears when she is in character. Here are a few looks I created inspired by Olivia Pope.


 Gladiator Style

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Solid neutral colors and tailored cuts adds the power and elegance to Olivia Pope’s looks.

The White Hat

The term “white hat” symbolizes one who is admirable and honorable. When she’s rocking the white hat, she is usually battling with her conscience.

Falling in the Trenches

I think Scandal has accelerated the classic trench coat to become one of the top trending coat styles of this year. Olivia utilizes the strong shoulders of a trench coat to add to her powerful presence.
