While my Facebook and Twitter timelines were going crazy last night over the return of ABC’s hit series Scandal, Season 3, I was stuck in one thing: Olivia Pope’s Trench Coat! I don’t know who the name of the stylist for Olivia’s character, but he or she deserves an award for the best wardrobe styling on prime time television.

I decided to do some digging for our fashionista followers. Turns out that the Trench Coat worn by Ms. Olivia Pope costs as a whopping $1,298. If you have that sort of money to spend on a jacket then good for you! However, many of us do not. To make shopping for a white Trench Coat a bit easier for my every day “Gladiators” a bit easier, below are a two stylish options:
