Mellie Grant seems to play second fiddle to Olivia Pope, both in the style department and in the eyes of Fitzgerald Grant. I would argue with the former, as her style measures up, if not exceeds Olivia’s.
I love that ninety percent of her looks are always so buttoned up, topped with pearls. Ten percent of her looks are pajamas; these looks aren’t elevated lounge wear. It underscores the sporadic vulnerability of her character.
I love her cardigans and her tweed pieces and her sheath dresses. This is how I wish to dress during the workweek. Like Mellie, when quitting time rolls around, I want to pop out of the static wardrobe and into pajamas: an oversized tee shirt and a pair of lounge pants.
