Our responsibility as PEOPLE StyleWatch editors is to show you the cutest outfits we see every day, and we take that very seriously. So we consider it practically a sacred duty to discuss Kerry Washington’s adorable look, spotted Thursday on Good Morning America.
We don’t know if she was feeling extra stylish when she woke up (Jan. 31 is her 36th birthday, after all), but this was just one of three cute ensembles she sported within a few hours — and it was definitely our favorite.
Why does it work so well? Something about the mix of the girlie Wes Gordon jacquard tee with the sassy A.L.C. leather skirt is appealing, and the proportions are exactly right. We loved that her rich red lipstick and flirty bangs totally fit into the playful vibe of the outfit. And the stunning Christian Louboutin booties with an ombré Lucite heel add impact to an otherwise simple look.
Though we’d like to say this is outfit inspiration for tomorrow, we’re kind of tempted to run home and change right now. Tell us: Do you like Kerry’s two-tone look?
