Kerry Washington Inspired Outfit - Sequin crop top, wide leg pants

Kerry Washington Inspired Outfit

I gathered inspiration for today’s outfit from one of my fashion icons, Kerry Washington.  I’ve always admired Kerry’s style both on and off the screen so when I saw her wear a beautiful designer outfit featuring white wide-leg pants and a silver sequin crop top, I just knew I had to recreate it. It’s so simple, but it makes a big statement.  See my recreation of her outfit below!

Top: Gryphon (similar options below) | Pants: Zara (similar) | Shoes: Steve Madden


I was obsessed with this outfit the moment I saw it on Kerry’s Instagram the night of the series finale of Scandal, one of my many guilty pleasure tv shows.  She wore the chic ensemble to a charity live script reading of the finale with her co-stars.  Kerry’s original top and pants are by August Getty Atelier and her shoes are by Giuseppe Zanotti.

This beautiful ensemble was surprisingly easy to recreate.  Wide-leg pants are my latest obsession so I already had a pair at Zara scoped out. They’re very simple and lightweight, making them versatile and perfect for warmer months.  However, we all know Zara sells out of sizes faster than a melting snow cone in hell, so I found a couple similar options. This pant from Missguided has to be my favorite because the style (and price) is so spot on.  There’s also these wide-leg pants from Forever 21. It comes as a set with a crop top of it’s own.

The sequin crop top proved to be a little more tricky.  You would think something so simple would be easy to find, but nope.  After searching every retailer I could think of, I finally found this Gryphon top on The RealReal. Luckily, though, I have since found a few similar tops that would be amazing stand-ins.  This sequin crop top from River Island is so cute! And ASOS has been killing it when it comes to sequin tops lately.  There are honestly so many choices from ASOS that I’m just going to list them below:
