Olivia Pope Style: Eye-Catching Outerwear

Since Scandal returned from hiatus a couple of weeks ago, we’ve noticed a change in the fashionable Olivia Pope’s wardrobe: She’s actually growing even more stylish. The fixer is sporting a new, sleek hairstyle, for one—a modern update from her usual soft waves—but what really stands out to us is her new collection of outerwear. In recent episodes, Olivia has swayed from her signature collarless blazer and opting for never-before-seen (as she’s known to repeat outfits in the show) pieces in uncharacteristic patterns and shapes, such as an oversize trench in timeless houndstooth. Realistically speaking, the new silhouettes were likely introduced to hide Kerry Washington’s growing baby bump, but the flattering jackets are so of-the-moment you’d never guess. Click through the slideshow for a look at six stellar looks from the show’s current season; here’s hoping there’s more daring colors, patterns, and shapes in episodes to come.
