Who: Allison, 29, buyer at Bloomingdale's for women's designers
Her go-to vibe: "I'm loving all of the color on the runways this week -- that's what inspired me to wear this red jacket today," she says. "Plaid is another big trend I think we'll see this spring." -- Allison
Wear it yourself tip: Here are two ways to stand out when you're shopping for a coat: Go oversized and look for a distinct detail, like a strange collar (Allison has on a portrait collar) or a detailed hem. It's the never-before-seen looks that make a statement.
