So last week I was interviewed by Mercedes Soler of NotiMujer on CNN en Espanol. It was a terrific experience and she asked a lot of questions about how to stay stylish in the cold winter that we tend to experience here in Chicago. Being a Chicago woman herself, originally, she could relate. Here are a few tips I shared on how to turn a dark and gloomy winter into a bright and fun season with amazing pieces from Old Navy.
Coats as a fashion statement.
Since we spend most of our day running around outside and that is in fact the first thing people see, what we wear on the outside has become the most important. Focus on things such as color and prints to really make a statement during these cold months.

Accessories are more than just for jewels.
Another great tip for being stylish and warm is knowing how to accessories with the very things that protect you from below zero wind chill. Focus on colored hats with interesting shapes or scarves with detailing.

These boots were made for walking and putting your best foot forward. Pun intended.
Sometimes we have to shovel out our cars, walk from the train and run to the next meeting without ever having time to change your shoes. Wearing shoes that are practical and fashion forward are key. There is never an excuse to step out in gym shoes and street style photographers would never take a second look at a woman impeccably dressed and wearing them.

All of these items can be found at www.oldnavy.com. I thought these would be really important to share since we have already experienced our first snowfall. I haven't decided how I feel about that yet but until then, layer up. It may be a cold one.
