One of the best parts about fall fashion is the sheer variety of outfits you can put together with just a few staple pieces. Your chunky sweaters pair perfectly with jeans, as well as with your wide-leg pants. Your slim-fit turtleneck looks great tucked into a skirt with knee-high boots, but it can also be just as easily worn with your favorite high-waisted pants. And now, we have come to find a new type of layer to add to our fall 2019 wardrobe: the shacket, aka the shirt jacket trend.
What is a shacket, you ask? It looks like a shirt, but layers like a jacket. It’s heavy enough to provide some warmth, but not too heavy when you find the temperatures creeping into the late sixties when the forecast *clearly* stated a high of 64 degrees last time you checked. (Weathermen these days just can’t get it right, can they?) It’s the perfect middle ground between a shirt and a jacket. And when layered over your outfit on a mild fall day, a next-level ensemble is born.
Think of a shacket as the fall solution to jean jackets (which, IMO, are better worn in the spring and summer). They come in a variety of fabrics—from corduroy to fleece—and are the perfect finishing touch to any fall outfit. Scroll down to shop our faves!
