The best part of watching Scandal, besides wanting Olivia Pope's exciting life, is the fact that you can easily steal her style for less. Here are all the outfits from the eighth episode called "The Last Supper".
As you can see, the trick to dressing like your favorite TV-show character for less is to recognize similar items in terms of shape and prints. Instead of buying an expensive peplum checkered top you can compensate with a cheaper shirt with such a pattern and instead of buying Olivia's Alexander McQueen coat for $4,000 you can get a herringbone alternative for ten times less. It is also important to sometimes improvise like throwing a poncho over a coat for a cape-like effect.
