The Scandal Collection at The Limited Kerry Washington

Oh Em Geee ladies. The Scandal Collection from The Limited is finally here. I cannot tell you how excited I am. One word: Beyond. Ladies, you too can now don the white cape along with several other fashionable pieces that you can use to turn your business professional wardrobe up a notch. If you love Olivia Pope’s fashion sense on the show, you’ll no doubt love what Kerry Washington and The Limited have cooked up. The Limited partnered up with Kerry and Scandal costume designer, Lyn Paolo (who is a genius with the work she does with the wardrobe for the show) to bring you powerful but pretty looks inspired by Kerry Washington’s no-nonsense character Olivia Pope

I felt like a giddy schoolgirl thumbing through the selections. As you can imagine, the collection is filled with fabulous coats and sharp pants because as we all know very well Olivia wears the pants, figuratively and literally.  What about skirts and dresses? It’s handled. Though Olivia Pope rarely wears dresses aside from during flash backs or ball gowns to formal events, there are a couple of chic dresses and skirts in the 42 piece collection.

I’m loving the interchangeability of it all. Mix and match the pieces and the options are seemingly endless. In fact, my only problem with the line is that it’s filled with fabulous coats and cold weather options that I can’t get much use out of here in South Florida.  Noooo (sheds single tear).  There’s a white coat inspired by the Burberry Prorsum Double Duchess caped trench coat that Kerry wore in the season 3 opener that I absolutely love.  In fact, I wore a white caped blouse with a similar aesthetic in one of my previous posts.

Let’s hope they keep this thing going. The Limited has announced that there are 40 more pieces coming for the Scandal Holiday collection so one can hope the collection extends beyond that.  I live to see Olivia in caped coats and leather opera gloves as much as the next Gladiator but I’m oh so curious to see what Olivia Pope would wear in the summer.

Prices for the smart but beautiful collection range from approximately $49 to $298. All Gladiators can purchase pieces from the collection here
