Characters in Style: Olivia Pope Rocks the Burberry Prorsum Caped Trench Coat


No one rocks a power suit or a trench coat quite like Scandal's Olivia Pope. I instantly became hooked on the political drama a few years ago. I started watching it merely because it shoots here in D.C., and I was instantly blown away by Kerry Washington's character Olivia. She is tough and extremely quick-witted, talking circles around key power players in Washington. Though underneath the tough suit is a vulnerable woman who at times is just trying to make it through the day (almost always with a glass of wine). But let's get back to the suit. Olivia dresses the part impeccably.


After the premiere of Scandal season 3, everyone is buzzing about the glorious Burberry white caped trench coat she wore for the first episode. It's the BURBERRY PRORSUM White Cotton Duchesse Satin Cape Trench Coat as seen on Cara Delvingne on the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2013 runway show in London (pictured above). The designer trench coat is sold out, though there is currently one available on Ebay here - emphasis on currently. To keep up with more style from Scandal or your other favorite shows, you can go to Get This and select show (scroll to the bottom), and you can even download an app so you can shop the styles as you see them play out on the screen.

Though if it's just as much out of your price range as it is mine, here are some other white trench coats, all around $200 and under. I think a good trench coat is worth the investment. I actually like to get mine on Black Friday. My last one was a high-quality wool coat that I got on sale for $50, and it's lasted for years and years. And because these coats are so classic in design, you never have to worry about them going out of style, and you can always consign them if you're ready for an upgrade. I love their versatility. They go with boots, heels, and loafers alike; and you can pair them with casual jeans or an elegant suit.

  1. I've seen Kerry Washington in some other work, but not this series.
