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 Coat.....

Searching for the perfect winter coat...here it is!  I love something simple and oversized ideal for layering and this week you can WIN this wool coat by Banana Republic.  Just leave a comment below or @nataliehartleywears or @nataliehartley to enter, deadline is Monday 22nd December...good luck!

TIP.. the perfect way to wear this coat is add a hoodie and a pair of jeans and wear with a good boot but these bigger shaped coats do mean you should balance the look with something more fitted underneath to give your leg a slimmer look its all about balancing sizes

The Hoodie.....

Sportswear has become an acceptable way of dressing outside of the gym and designers have been hugely inspired by the hoodie, this is one of my favourite styles and in leather keeps your outfit on trend but stylish enough to wear out and about.  This week you can WIN this ASOS one that I am wearing just leave a comment below or on my Instagram or RT the blog on Twitter to enter...deadline is Monday 8th December...good luck!

TIP... add a pair of straight leg cropped trousers to dress up a simple basic liked this hoodie wear with a simple heeled ankle boot to also stop this outfit from looking to 'street' the idea is to stay grown up and sophisticated with a touch of sport and layer a polo neck underneath for another detail
