On tonight’s all-new episode of Scandal Olivia Pope’s (Kerry Washington) relationship with President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) reaches its boiling point as a massive government conspiracy begins to unfold. To reflect the intensity of the storyline, costume designer Liz Paolo selected a more somber color for Washington’s character. “I wanted Olivia to be in something darker than usual, although still feminine,” Paolo told “We chose this Akris Punto jacket which is a bloucle wool that has elements of black, cream, and gray woven into the fabric.” The versatile, fitted jacket is a staple for fall, and we love how Paolo paired it with simple gold jewelry for a sophisticated look. Watch the new episode of Scandal tonight at 10/9c on ABC.
