Shirt Jackets or Shakets have been “what’s cool” in menswear for the past few seasons but, ladies, this season we are gonna make this layering piece perfection our own.
What the heck are Shakets? You have most likely seen them on your Instagram feed (seriously they are everywhere) but didn’t know what they were.
Basically, shackets look like a shirt, but layer like a jacket. To break it down, they are heavier than a button up shirt, lighter than a jacket yet heavy enough to provide some warmth. Shirt Jackets are the perfect middle ground between a shirt and a jacket, hence the name.
Shackets are intended to have a slightly oversize fit with utilitarian details that look oh so cool whether you style one as a shirt or worn open as a top layer. I love to layer them over dresses (of course) but they are fantastic layered over t-shirts with jeans or even over leggings!
Think of a shacket as the fall solution to jean jackets, anything you would normally toss a jean jacket on with can be worn with a shacket.
Super versatile in style there is one out there for everyone because they are available in a HUGE variety of fabrics—from corduroy to denim to leather and wool.
And the best part? They suit literally everyone no matter what your size or age. So if you want an easy and cool way to look on-trend as we transition from summer to fall, consider the shacket your essential, new go-to piece.
