Is it a jacket or a shirt? Or both?
Hello & Happy Monday,
Transitioning into fall time style can only mean one thing… SHACKETS! For those not familiar with the term, a shacket is essentially a slightly oversize shirt-jacket hybrid and every year they seem to get better & better.
So, I may have a bit of a jacket and coat obsession as this is one of my favourite areas to spend my fashion budget. Whether it’s a leather jacket, a wool coat or a plaid shacket – they can make such a large impact on the overall tone and look of an outfit. A jacket can stretch your wardrobe by allowing you to create new combinations and always look put-together and fashionable.
My advice is to purchase one or two statement-making jackets that stand out and that will go a long way in your wardrobe. Like I’ve said before, purchasing statement pieces can take the place of splurging on several lower-cost pieces.
Ok so, back to shackets – what’s so great about them, you ask? Shackets are the absolute perfect layering piece to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. Their popular wool blend and leather styles make them thicker than your average shirt, but thinner than your heavy winter coat so you can easily layer them over a t-shirt, a turtleneck or even a sweater. And not to mention they suit everyone!
Aside, from them being the absolute perfect layering piece they are a versatile wardrobe must-have. They look fresh buttoned up as a shirt and effortlessly cool undone as a jacket, from the campfire to date night – the options are endless. It's time to welcome the shacket into your wardrobe this season.
