Here’s why this light-weight jacket should be your wardrobe wingman

Why should I wear It?

The perfect multitasking light-weight jacket, you can dress your Harrington to suit pretty much any occasion and any place in the country. It is the one layer that works in our tropical climate—be it for a holiday in the hills or an evening out in the city in spring. With clever layering, you can wear it from the early autumn months of September-October till the late spring month of March. Invest now and you’ll reap style dividends for many years to come.

How do I wear It?

The fit is vital. Aim for slim, but not too tight, to give you a leaner silhouette. The waistband must sit on your belt; above and it’s too small, hanging below and you need to drop a size. The cuffs should finish on the wrist, not above or below. Fabric covered waistbands and cuffs lock more sophisticated: Go for button pockets over peppers and a tartan or houndstocth lining; they’re original features and add a touch of flair.

Why should I avoid?

Garish patterns for one. Black, navy or beige versions suit everyone and never date. For colour, choose a shade that complements your skin tone. Red is a perennial winner for darker complexions, but can be tricky for some colourings. A lighter blue can flatter paler complexions. Never put bulky wallets in Harrington pockets—the bulge tends to show like a six-month pregnancy. Do choose ICC per cent cotton versions, as cheaper synthetics will make you sweat—and a cheap sweaty date usually means a last date.

Where should I buy it?

If you’re strapped for cash this month, opt for some brilliant patterns and colours available at Zara Man, Esprit and United Oolors of Benetton (2,OOC to ?4,000). But if you have the moolah to blow, visit Armani, Versace or Just Oavalli (1O,CCO to 25,OOO). Stuck in between? Tommy -lilfiger, S. Oliver and Lacoste are the places for you! (?5,000 to 9,000)
