You might be asking yourself, what exactly is a shacket? Shackets are a hybrid between a shirt and a jacket, which means you can wear it as both! You may have even seen them called ‘overshirts’ or ‘chore jackets’. It’s the ultimate multi-tasking transitional piece, and it’s casual enough to fit the pandemic dress code. Comfy, casual, but still put-together.
Right now, I wear my shacket as a shirt, but later I’ll unbutton it and wear with a cashmere sweater or white button-down underneath. This cream version from Mango layered with white jeans kicked off my obsession. You can cop the same shirt in plum if that’s more your shade. For right now, this khaki-colored long shacket is the perfect weight for in-between.
Corduroy is shaping up to be one oft he trends of this fall, and a roomy shacket is a perfect way to get in on it. Everlane’s navy blue shacket can be worn as a matching set with their pants, or add some texture to your favorite pair of jeans. Madewell’s quilted burnt orange jacket looks like the epitome of fall.
You know I love a winter white, and a shacket is a great way to create an incredibly chic monochromatic look or just add a bit of freshness to your dark winter wardrobe. Velvet’s sherpa shacket injects texture and coziness into any outfit. & Other Stories’s quilted cream-colored overshirt is a great way to add some visual interest.
I’ve been leaning into the utilitarian vibe with military-inspired details and shades of army green. This one from 1822 Denim has plenty of pockets, and is made out of durable but fashionable canvas. Madewell’s is slightly oversized, leaving plenty of room for layering everything from t-shirts to sweaters underneath.
