The jacket has been seen in many different guises this winter and below are some of my favourites like the bomber, the military and the biker but all have been worn in very different ways! This week WIN the metallic bomber jacket from the second outfit (a style seen through spring/ summer too) just tell me how you would wear it by leaving a comment below or tweet me @nataliehartley deadline closes in a week....good luck!
TIP...update the biker jacket look with colour if you go for an animal print like this match the red in the jacket with burgundy and a pillar box red roll neck worn under gives it a cool modern edge, why not try half turns ups instead of the usual rolled hem

TIP...update a party dress with a sporty inspired jacket but the metallic print means this dresses it up add metallic brogues for an alternative to heels but still feels like you have made an effort!

sunglasses by house of harlow 1960
socks (tights cut into socks) by emilio cavallini
TIP...I have kept this look dark and added a white shirt under a knitted top with the buttons done up it all adds to a structured look that suits this type of jacket, jeans give it a more relaxed vibe but keep them black as both dark navy and black work really well together...try it!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!
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

Its not about a novelty jumper, this year the sweater is the best winter investment. No longer seen as something for the gym these jumpers add cool to your outfit and can be dressed up or down but the best way to make the sweater modern is by adding a crisp white shirt underneath them all.....
TIP...the slogan top is back and you cant get cooler than the opening ceremony sweatshirt (plus its under 50 quid!) I love the 3/4 sleeves and have gone for a mens size as this gives a better oversized shape great with skinny black jeans and boots

shirt by g star
TIP...why not try a sweater in a strong colour the white shirt pops against it and the slashed detail on the front stops this looking too casual add a printed trouser
