Nothing to wear? The Means-Business Jacket

Cardigans are in this season, yada yada yada. And that’s fine if you work on a tech startup, or in the arts. It’s less fine if you work in a more traditional job, or want one, and have a job interview. Unless that interview is literally for a job in a woollen mill, you’ll need a means-business jacket. Which does just what it says on the tin.

There’s been a long-running trend for unstructured clothing in recent seasons, but this is changing. It may feel unsettling and overblown to wear something stiff after aeons of mooching around in knitwear. I hate to break it to you, but you’re in for a short, sharp shock. Tailoring is not only back, but back with a vengeance. Don’t think gently rounded jackets sans lining: think blazers. Yes, even double-breasted ones – worn with a polo neck for extra fashion brownie points.

But oh, aren’t they delicious? Admit it: they feel good. It’s hard to feel empowered in a Fair Isle jumper. Nothing commands respect like a smart row of buttons and a well-turned shoulder. Get the jacket, get the job.
