The shacket has been around for a few years now and is a firm favourite of mine. If you didn’t know, a shacket is a mix between a shirt and a jacket and It’s one of the staple pieces that everyone needs in their autumn/winter wardrobe and it will be your best friend when transitioning between the seasons.
They’ve have made a huge appearance this autumn/winter pretty much everywhere and it’s a must have if you don’t already own one. The reason I love shirt jackets so much is it’s so easy to style, incredibly comfy and is a great layering piece. I wear mine over a hoody or t-shirt and then as the weather gets colder I can layer a coat over the top – perfect! I have a few in my collection, including a khaki shacket (a must have for all skin tones and hair colours – khaki goes with everything), a leather shacket, which is ideal for a more dressy look and the very much loved plaid style shacket.
I get the most compliments when I wear my plaid shacket, from people who don’t normally even show an interest in fashion so I know it must be a good look!
Luckily shopping at the moment is shackets galore and every brand seems to have their own take on the shirt jacket available which means there’s one for you no matter your body shape, style, colour preference, favourite fit and even occasion.
If you don’t have a shacket, now is the time to invest as they’re not going anywhere anytime soon and it will be one of the best purchases you make this season I promise!
My favourite three shackets are from Topshop, Bershka (via ASOS) and Monki (also via ASOS). I just love these brands and probably buy most of my clothes from these brands so highly recommend shopping here, however with trying to avoid physically going out to the shops as often at the moment I have been predominantly searching for my autumn/winter fashion online. Nasty Gal is great for certain items and if you’re careful about what you buy, the quality is great. They also always have sales and great offers so make sure you check Nasty Gal regularly!
Here are a few shirt jackets to inspire you this season!
