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 Minimal Coat.....

Today you can win this amazing funnel neck wool coat just tell me how you would wear it leave a comment below or tweet me @nataliehartley...winner announced tomorrow night...good luck!

TIP... a simple minimal coat in a pale colour is key to this winters trends the pvc elbow patches give this a futuristic edge and a simple shaped coat works really well with these loose mens printed trousers just roll up the hems and add a boot
coat by h&m
trousers by kenzo
jumper by opening ceremony
boots by balenciaga


  1. With this coat being so minimal it would work perfectly with pretty much anything, but I would go with high waisted black boyfriend jeans with a sliver chrome heel with a oversized college sweat jumper with a super bling statement necklace

  2. Lovely coat - I would pair it with a cropped wool-blend trouser, a turtlenecked long-sleeved t-shirt to match the coat's collar, cut-out chunky black boots and a tartan scarf to bring in some heritage!


  3. We all know how you love to bring colour miss Natalie, but with a piece like this, I'm feeling loose fit palazzos, white wedges and an ultra chunky funnel knit. All white. Yup, the whiteout.

  5. Hi Natalie,

    That coat is absolutely gorgeous, if I had the money (I can wish) I’d wear these with it http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/314753 and a long black top with a well cut neckline to compliment the lines of the coat.
    Or I’d follow your tip and chose a pair of print trousers with beige in them to bring back the colour of the coat. I’ll stop before this turns into some crazed essay.
