This week’s Fashionista’s style is more than personal; it’s playful. She borrows the best of color, pattern, fabric and fit to create a stylistic vision that’s inarguably all her own. This winter-friendly look is not only fashionable, but also practical given the brutal temperatures hitting NYC. Combining the elegance of a quaint silk scarf with the whimsical flare of fingerless gloves and chunky legwarmers, this Fashionista’s ensemble turns feminine into fun and bohemian into bold. Whether it be lush layers or ladylike accessories, this Fashionista can transform anything into a statement.

CF: What’s your favorite season to dress for and why?
SS: Definitely summer because you can wear a lot of loose clothing. I love bright and colorful clothing, and with a tan it always looks better!
CF: Describe your personal style in three words.
SS: Avant garde, chic, sophosticated.
CF: Are there any style statements you’re dying to try right now?
SS: I’ve never tried this but I want to pair a high waisted skirt with different types of patterned leggings or something.
CF: Has living in New York City had an affect on the way you approach your style?
SS: Definitely. I see so many people from all over the world that all dress so differently. I love seeing how the Europeans dress especially. When I went to France I loved seeing how they treated style and how interestingly they dress.
How To: Get this Fashionista’s look by doubling up on bright scarves. Pair bright accessories with an oversized coat and cozy leg warmers to combat the cold.
