Ranking All the Looks From The Limited's 'Scandal' Collection From Best to Worst
By John Boone
The Limited Collection Inspired by 'Scandal'
Gladiators, we can now all dress like Olivia Pope. Which means we are only one flawless apartment, a handful of sexy boyfriends, and the ability to drink endless amounts of wine without ever getting a hangover away from being Olivia Pope.
Kerry Washingtonpartnered with Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo and The Limited to produce "The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal," with pieces ranging in price from $49 to $248 (so you don’t need an OPA-sized paycheck to purchase them).
Now that all of the looks have been released, we can decide which we love and need ASAP and which should be banished to the B-613 box and never heard from again. So we ranked them:
15. High Neck Halter Top, ‘Livvy’ Slim Leg Ankle Pant
“The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal for Basic Bitches.”
14. Black & White Ruffle Collar Top, ‘Olivia’ Modern Trouser
This is cute, but again, it’s a little too simple for us. An added ruffle does not an excxiting blouse make. (Sidebar: If you’re power walking all over D.C., wouldn’t that ruffle blow up and back into your face? We have suspicions.)
13. Epaulette Shirt, Officers Pencil Skirt
We would absolutely ruin this outfit immediately. There is no way we could keep this outfit that white. Also, it’s a little bit Afternoon-Martinis-at-the-Country-Club, don’t you think?
12. Necktie Blouse, Officers Pencil Skirt
This looks like it’s for a secretary. Or Abby.
11. Black White Sheath Dress
This is very pretty and we think we could actually pull it off. That said, we don’t see Olivia wearing this dress.
We have no idea where we would wear this. Would you wear this to work? What would people think if you wore gloves to the office? We would buy this and look at it longingly hanging in our closet and wish we had somewhere to wear it.
3. Tweed Peplum Jacket, ‘Livvy’ Slim Leg Ankle Pant
We aspire to be chic enough for this outfit. Love.
2. Elbow Sleeve Sweater, ‘Liv’ Flare Leg Pant
We’re drunk already thinking about this outfit. Because you know this is the outfit you curl up in amid your fifty thousand throw pillows and have a glass (or six) of wine. We’ll opt for white wine though, because guaranteed we will spill red all over that gorgeous, gorgeous sweater.
1. Cape Sleeve Trench, ‘Live’ Flare Leg Trouser
The collection will be available exclusively at The Limited starting Sept. 23.
