The Working Wardrobe Essentials Shared by the Stars of 'Scandal'

The Working Wardrobe Essentials Shared by the Stars of 'Scandal'(Source: ABC)While we covet Olivia Pope's (played by Kerry Washington) closet each week on Scandal, her gladiators, both past and present, and even her nemesis have stylish tricks up their own sleeves. In fact, the series' other three leading ladies caught our attention last week with fashionable workwear that has already been approved by other small-screen stars. Let's take a closer look at their beloved basics while on the clock—plus where to stock up for yourself.

Although these powerful players hail from different branches of government, they can both agree on a classic dress with a twist—a neckline keyhole twist that is. The First Lady (Bellamy Young) flaunted a bold red version last week on Scandal, just one week after How to Get Away with Murder's Annalise (Viola Davis) selected the Escada number in black.

Abby (Darby Stanchfield) has been stepping it up in her new role, especially when it comes to the wardrobe department. She also displayed some sophisticated style last week in her own sheath, which was a tweed version by Paul Smith that she paired with a matching frayed-hem jacket. As it turns out, she shares her staple with working mom Julia (Erika Christensen), who selected the exact same frock last month on Parenthood

Clearly the more casual member of Pope's associates, Quinn's (Katie Lowes) rebellious attire often includes distressed muscle tees. Last week, she sported two—both of which were also adored by Nashville stars. On top of a faded black Free People top, Lowes' character rocked a graphic tank that country rockstar Rayna James (Connie Britton) paired with a leather jacket on last night's episode
