Kerry Washington covers the latest edition of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit and, duh, things turn to Scandal fashion pretty quickly. There’s the usual talk about how Olivia Pope is making everyone rethink power dressing, and Kerry touches on how important shoes are for making the characters come to life. My favorite, favorite part was when she talked about how it’s Olivia’s luxe loungewear that really has impacted her…and made her feel all grown up.
“I love that I get to feel elegant at home. When you’re at home, be good to yourself. It’s not about trying to impress anybody.” Amen, sister! Olivia is shown wearing a lot of luxurious Donna Karan cashmere in her D.C. apartment, but Kerry’s words ring true for jammies of any level. One of those random fashion things that made me feel like I was getting more grown-up was when I purged my PJ drawer of most of my cheerleading shorts and freebie event tees, replacing them with some cute matched sets.
