Annalise Keating spends most of her time in the courtroom, so she tends to wear dark, subdued colors and simple chic layers. But that doesn’t mean that her style isn’t legendary — she’s mastered the art of elevating her looks with great textures, accessories and a classic dark lip smokey eye combo.
Olivia Pope has a lot on her plate, constantly fighting to keep government officials in the clear.
