why i do what I do.....

I am now Fashion Director at Glamour magazine but following on from the success of my weekly column in the Sunday Times Style magazine I thought I would bring this page to life every week and also give you the chance to comment. This page is not for me to dictate what you should be wearing but to offer ideas on how to put wearable outfits together. Its not what you wear it's how you wear it!

The Sleeveless Jacket

Everyday for the next week I am giving away something that I am wearing on each of the daily updates  for you to hopefully get just in time before the holidays.  Leave a comment below each of the outfits or tweet me @nataliehartley how you would wear the piece that I am giving away and be in with your chance to win everyday for a week starting today!  Good Luck!

Today I am giving away this leather sleeveless jacket......how would you wear it?!

TIP...a leather sleeveless jacket is great under big coats or over clothes like I have here, add a statement jumper and roll the hems of trousers or jeans for a 50's twist look flat brogues are cute with this outfit as they give an edge to the outfit but balances out the look and adds to the effect of an oversized jacket
jacket by topshop
jumper by balenciaga at matches
jeans by paige
brogues by zara


  1. I'd wear it over a chunky waffle knit jumper in a bright colour, maybe yellow, with ripped black skinny jeans, some cool metallic brogues and a grey beanie.

  2. I would wear it to toughen up soft dresses along with tights and boots

  3. I would wear a casual black high neck maxi dress with an embellished jacket then the sleeveless biker over the top, for day biker boots then for night pop on my favourite heels. Sliver Chrome purse to top it off.
    Love the blog.

  5. I love this leather waistcoat. I would wear it with nothing underneath! just the waistcoat.....haha

    Have u seen my fashion blog yet?


  6. One amazing jacket, so many options... Right now I'd style it with a printed silk Equipment shirt tucked into an oxblood leather pencil skirt for a polished yet grungy Christmas party outfit. Sky high studded platform ankle boots would keep it looking cool and a red lip for a bit of glam.

  7. For daytime, i would wear this over a grey sporty sweatshirt and some baggy leather pants and converse trainers. For evening, I'd throw this over a helmut Lang dress with heels

  8. thanks to everyone who has entered todays competition! the winner is Ellie Collister as love the addition of colour through tartan to add with the jacket! keep looking as many more chances to win this week!
