Gladiators in Suits Can Be Fab Too! Fashion Lessons From Olivia Pope.
How we walk says everything about who we are. – Kerry Washington
Scandal fans, this one is just for you. But I’m sure other people can benefit too. After all, good outfits are good outfits, right?
I was late to the Scandal party. at first I wasn’t really sure whether I liked it but I found myself watching back to back episodes so I could catch up. Now I’m hooked. As a PR student, I found Olivia’s crisis management techniques extremely interesting. Never mind some of her methods (hopefully) aren’t used in real life. As a fashion girl and lover of office fashion her outfits spoke to me. As a woman, I loved how she was powerful and confident but still feminine. Who says gladiators in suits can’t be fab too?
I didn’t realize how much attention her wardrobe got from fans until I did a Google search in preparation for this post. One of the things that I really love is how she keeps different jackets in her office that allow her to go from “date” to “business” in seconds. That is the kind of versatility that gets me every time. As you go through the photos take note of the long necklaces and how she maintains a clean, long line with shoes that match her pants.
But first, here is a video where Kerry Washington discusses how important the outfits are to the Olivia Pope character. Prepare for Armani, Valentino and shoegasm or two.
Now on to the photos all compliments abc.com where you can find tons of Olivia’s looks from both seasons.
Are you as in love as I am?
