The “Shacket” Trend: Five Ways to Style This Look

We doubt there’s an item of clothing quite as adaptable as the shacket – in other words, a shirt jacket. The chic spring staple is – the perfect way to stay comfortable in between seasons. Thicker than a shirt yet lighter than a coat, it’s versatile, stylish and makes any look structured and put-together.

There’s a reason the part shirt, part jacket is your ideal, all-year-round layering item. Designed in a variety of fabrics for both casual or more structured looks this trend has been popular with both men and women. Switch out the denim jacket or your go-to blazer for a shacket in corduroy, fleece, flannel or sherpa for a simple style upgrade.

Pair a block-coloured shacket with a checkered sweater or vibrant knit for a casual winter look. Or reverse it by layering your pattered shacket under a solid overcoat for a smarter style.

Bottega Veneta

Daniel Lee has put a very stylish spin on the shacket with this leather button-up. Wear over summer dresses now and then use the shirt to layer up come winter. This leather shacked is the perfect staple to invest in. Wear with a good quality pair of jeans, a black heel and layer a coat over the top for the ultimate evening look.

Mango Wool-Blend Jacket

The smart oversize look in check-print and a classic shirt collar works wonders over a knit or thin turtleneck. If you want to opt for the leather look without the price tag, look to Mango’s cream shacket, which would look great worn with your officewear. The wool fabric makes the shacket a warm outwear piece to pair with dark jeans or leather trousers with black boots for a cool, on-trend spring/autumn look. Features include; Tortoiseshell effect buttons, buttoned cuffs, two front pockets, side pockets and front button up.
