Congratulations Valerie Sarron, you're's Reader of the Week! From Boston, Massachusetts, Valerie wanted to make a sexy, striking, and bold statement in a red and navy look inspired by December's Color Crash Course: Cardinal Red.

Exclusively to, Valerie revealed, "I love incorporating this brilliant hue into my wardrobe as much as possible, so when I saw the natural, yet pleasantly refreshing pairing of cardinal red and navy blue in December's Color Crash Course, I layered a cashmere sweater over a cherry red dress and topped the outfit with a patterned, crimson scarf for a sophisticated look that was deliciously saturated with color." Get inspired by more InStyle readers we ♥ in our gallery.
