After Kerry Washington's white trench made headlines in the season 3 premiere of Scandal, we've been on the hunt for a Olivia Pope-inspired coat ever since. Luckily, all of our utilitarian fashion dreams are about to come true, thanks to Banana Republic's latest trench, which boasts all the familiar, iconic details of the classic topper, like buttoned epaulets, a notched collar, a double-breasted style, a buckle belt, and a center back vent.
And it already has a celebrity fan. Rachel Bilson threw the trench over her top and denim cut-offs, which served as a lightweight buffer against the Los Angeles elements (aka the rare chilly breeze) while giving her casual ensemble a polished, sophisticated spin. Wear it open over summery dresses or a tee and skinnies, and belt it close on rainy, cooler days. The coat is part of Banana Republic's California Collection and it's available at $225 at all stores and bananarepublic.com.
