We at Southern Femme love Scandal! Olivia Pope has always looked amazingly chic and sophisticated, and has been a constant source of inspiration for our clients’ work wardrobe. Oh the times we wished we could have snuck into Olivia’s apartment and pilfered through her envious wardrobe. However, that would be less than honorable and we would have to be, as the team at Olivia Pope & Associates puts it, handled. As loyal gladiators, we were excited about the announcement of the Scandal inspired collection by The Limited. Well, the wait is finally over as the collection launched Tuesday to coincide with the Season 4 premiere tonight at 8pm CST on ABC!
Femmes, this collection does not disappoint.
The collection, which is a collaboration from The Limited’s Head of Design, Elliot Staples, Scandal’s Costume Designer Lyn Paolo, and Olivia Pope herself, Kerry Washington, features a range of workwear staples including sumptuous overcoats, elegant pant and skirt suits, and beautiful silk blouses. Women no longer have to sacrifice fashion for respect in the boardroom. As Washington says, “Powerful women need more options.” And options they have provided. The collection features 78 pieces that can be mixed and matched to create over 3000 different empowering and fashionable looks. All of the pieces are under $250, and many are near replicas of clothing Washington wears as Pope on the show. Highlights of the collection include:
