If you love the fashion and style of career women in series like Gina Torres (Jessica Pearson) in ‘Suits’ and Kerry Washington (Olivia Pope) in ‘Scandal’ well here is your chance to revamp your wardrobe on a budget.
Earlier in the year we brought you the details of an Olivia Pope inspired collection from fashion brand The Limited, well now it’s time to get a sneak peek into the collection and start saving up for when the collection is finally released.
The “Scandal” collection at The Limited contains more than 70 items, with prices from about $49 to $250. The garments are due in stores and online next week and are scheduled to be available through May, the end of the 2014-15 television season. A multimedia campaign bills the collection as “Fearless fashion for ladies who lead.”
The collection features pencil skirts, chic coats, print blouses, and a selection of work-ready pants.The Limited described the clothing, which will go on sale later this month, as ‘sophisticated professional’ with a neutral palette, tailored leg trousers and chic feminine blouses.

The Limited calls the “Scandal” merchandise a collaborative effort of Ms. Washington; Elliot Staples, head of design for the retailer; and Lyn Paolo, the costume designer for “Scandal.” Her stylized look for the series, described as “gladiators in suits,” has been noticed by the fashion press. The three are featured in a video clip that promotes the collection; some print ads, showing models wearing the clothes, also give a shout-out to the creator of “Scandal,” Shonda Rhimes, and feature the logos of the series and ABC.
