Here’s the style dilemma: It’s cold enough that you need a heavier layer to keep out the chill, but not quite cold enough for a coat yet. Enter the
shacket, your new in-between-seasons wardrobe hero. A cross between a button-down shirt and a jacket, shackets are usually oversized and made
from a heavier material, like flannel, corduroy or denim. So not only are they functional, but also effortlessly cool. If you’re (somehow) not sold on
shacket life yet, read on for easy outfit ideas, along with some of our favorite picks.
Shacket Outfit Ideas for Her
2. Try denim-on-denim.
4. Take your athleisure from point
A to B.
Even if you’re just running out for coffee or heading
back from the yoga studio, you want to look
put-together. Swap out your old hoodie for a shacket
and throw it on over a tee and leggings so that you’re
not only warm, but prepared for any potential
5. Just add faux leather.
One of our favorite things about fall/winter dressing is
being able to mix and layer different fabrics. Paired with
faux leather—be it a skirt or pants—a tweed or denim
shacket looks especially chic. Complete the ’fit with a
cozy blanket scarf or knit beanie and boom, you’re
nailing the season.
Shacket Outfit Ideas for Him
2. Say yes to plaid.
The epitome of cold-weather style, plaid isn’t just for
flannels anymore. Start with a neutral-toned Henley
or classic crewneck sweater, and top with a shirt
jacket in extra-cozy fleece. Complete the look with
dark wash denim and boots.
3. Invest in a chore coat.
What’s a chore coat, you ask? Simply put, it’s a boxy,
structured shirt jacket with big pockets. And as far as
we’re concerned, it’s an essential layering piece for
every guy’s wardrobe that looks just as good with a tee
and jeans as it does with a button-down and chinos.
