TV Trend Alert: Sheer Yoke Necklines

TV Trend Alert: Sporty Mesh Necklines(Source: ABC)You can always count on Scandal and Revenge for some major closet inspiration. Whether it's Olivia Pope (played by Kerry Washington) and her band of gladiators hailing from D.C. on Thursday nights or the high-powered Hamptons crew that reigns on Sundays, these leading ladies love their classic, clean lines. In fact, we've been noticing an edgy yet surprisingly modest silhouette on both series as of late.

Even while swimming laps, Washington flaunts her coveted designer duds. On a recent episode, her character sported two on-trend swim suit options, including a white one-piece boasting a mesh yoke by Alexander Wang. As it turns out, the athletic-inspired style is also adored by Margaux LeMarchal (Karine Vanasse).

The fashion magazine editor-in-chief paired her Rag & Bone top—which showed off her collarbones in a sophisticated way—with a bold green pencil skirt for one of her signature chic work wear ensembles.
