Whether you watch show or not, you probably already know that “Olivia Pope” played by Kerry Washington, is becoming somewhat of a fashion (character) icon through this popular TV show. Although the shows and characters are drastically different, you could compare the definite buzz and attention around Olivia’s exquisitely chic looks to the interest in Carrie’s eclectic designer wardrobe in the days of Sex In The City’s popularity. Olivia’s looks may not have the same extent of “trendy” interest, but there is a similar fashionable interest in each character’s wardrobe. It makes the show even more interesting to watch because Kerry is great in the character and is well matched with the on point wardrobe.

After reviewing the images from the 2nd season, I chose 5 essential “Olivia Pope Inspired Wardrobe Style Tips”. If you are trying to upgrade your look to be more sophisticated yet chic, these tips are for you!
