Scandal fashion gets punchy!

There sure was a lot of tonguing, yelling, and fighting during Scandal's "Mama Said Knock You Out" episode on March 27. But what packed a bigger punch than the men in the White House? Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) black cape.

The stunning Dolce & Gabbana cape jacket topped her printed Armani jacket -- and was just the right amount of wow that it almost made us forget that it cleverly covered Washington's real-life growing baby bump. Almost. (Washington's first-ever pregnancy is not being written into the D.C. drama's plot, and the season has been truncated to 18 episodes to accommodate her baby's expected arrival.)

Get the look for less with a spring-appropriate camel cape jacket. Chico's Black Label Cape Jacket ($79.98 on sale, Chicos.com) features the same neck closure and thigh-skimming length, but the lighter color will complement breezy dresses as the temperatures warm up.

Or, if you prefer the dark color a la Olivia, opt for the ASOS Cape Cardigan ($79.04, Asos.com) featuring a chunky ladder knit in dark navy.
