Now that fall television’s in full swing, we’re commandeering our favorite on-screen heroines to help us take our office wardrobe up a notch. Whether it’s Olivia Pope, who manages crises in white-on-white-on-white, or Joan Harris, who reigns as queen of the boy’s club in form-fitting sheath dresses, these ladies are trailblazers on all fronts. Your new head-to-toe look? It’s handled.


As the Nation’s Capital’s most in-demand fixer, Olivia Pope doesn’t have time to mess around on the sartorial front. She sticks to all-business neutrals in strong, elegant shapes. How she gets down and dirty on the job while keeping her whites pristine? It’s lost on us.
