Kerry Washington's closet essentials for transitional weather

Traveling coast to coast to promote her show 'Scandal' and her new clothing line with The Limited, means that guest editor Kerry Washington is always on the go. While both Kerry and Olivia's style draws some parallels, Kerry notes that there are a few key differences saying, "Olivia is more professional. I am more of a risk-taker. We both lean towards the feminine, with a bit of edge, but her edge is more power driven, and mine is more funky and flirty."

While funky and flirty may be more Kerry's style, when we asked her five essentials, we noticed a few striking similarities to Olivia's favorite wardrobe staples. As the weather continues to transition, Kerry can't live without a great pair of boots, a day clutch, her Toms sunnies, a wrap coat and a cape. Do those last two not sound like something we've seen Olivia in before? In fact, as part of Kerry's new collection with The Limited, there are a few AMAZING wool coats that fit this bill.
