While winter is still here, there’s no reason not to have fun with color. Whether it’s a scarlet wool coat or a red handbag, red speaks to a woman’s confidence, joie de vivre and can’t help but provoke other’s to take note. And while I’m not necessarily someone who flocks to shades of rouge, take long-time nationally renowned news reporter Andrea Mitchell’s advice on choosing crimson. When given the advice of a fellow veteran reporter to wear red in order to be called on for questions, she discovered it worked and hasn’t turned back since. Even if you’re not a reporter, it’s a great way to had a bit of perk to your gate when you need a boost and who knows whose attention you will grab.

The outfit of the week is inspired by a fashion expert – Nina Garcia. While dressing warm for the chilly streets of New York Fashion Week, she still knows how to exude timeless style. The key? Layers, layers and a few more layers. With tights, a turtleneck, followed by a faux fur vest and a cashmere scarf, she looks warm, but properly in step with the street style that the occasion requires. Be sure to comment below on this week’s outfit you’d like to have shopped next Thursday.

  1. I adore red, especially for coats. Black seems to be the predominant Winter coat colour here in England. Any wonder I stand out with my cardinal red and royal blue coats. Winter is so drab to start with, you need the little lift a bright colour gives.

  2. No. 5 please. Gwyneth looks amazing as always. Real effortless chic. The outfit is so timeless, seasonless and would suit a variety of occasions. I would love to have this in my wardrobe.

  3. Red is my favorite color! The woman who is wearing the Red skirt and snow leopard print top looks so happy that I want to wear it, too.

  4. WOW! The red pants, pink top and chunky chain gold necklace. That color combo is bold, confident, and happy. It just gave me a spring rush of excitement. BTW I love this new Style Inspiration Series series. Thank you!

  5. My favorite look is the last one, with the bootcut jeans and chunky oversized sweater. I have had to stick to skinny jeans that will fit inside my boots because of the perma-snow in Chicago. Bootcut or flare jeans would be ruined by the slush and salt. I’m looking forward to spring!

  6. LOVE the pink blouse and red pants! Is that Zosia Mamet? And while I think Nina Garcia is so chic, she still seems to be such a Bxtch on Project Runway!

  7. What an inspiring blog you have! I’ve kept myself tuned with your messages in an almost daily basis since two or three months already! Love it! 🙂

    And about your Red & Warm Inspiration… Winter is pretty grey also here, in the South of Switzerland -where the sun seems to shine most of the times-.. So I do go for the first and sixth styles! That’s truly a beautiful red coat (I have never had one… but I’ve got the feeling that it won’t be for too long..) and it’s so well combined too! And the girl with the mustard-yellow sweater, soo chic with those pants! Marvelous!

  8. These are all great choices! Am stuck between 3 and 8…..LOVE the red and leopard, but am going with #3 as my fav.
