Have you jumped on the shacket trend yet? Whether you wear one as you head outside on a cooler day or layer one inside on a frigid day, a shacket is one thing you’ll love having in your closet! It’s one of the best ways stay cozy yet look chic both indoors and out.
I’m sure you’ve seen shackets all over from the grocery store to Instagram. Shackets are something that can be worn truly year round.
It’s a great transition piece as we move from winter to spring or from summer to fall. You can easily swap out your cozy cardigan sweater for a shacket in the middle of winter or throw it on over cut off shorts on cool winter nights.
But before we get too far, let’s take a step back and talk about what a shacket is!
What is a Shacket?
A shacket is a mix between a shirt and a jacket (get it?). Shackets are a great alternative to a jean jacket or utility jacket when you head outside if you live in a warmer climate or for staying cozy inside if you live in a colder climate (like me!).
You might also hear them being called “overshirt” or “shirt jacket” so if you’re shopping online looking for a new shacket and having trouble finding anything, try searching one of those terms!
Shackets come in a ton of different fabrics from flannel to fleece to corduroy and can add a chic touch to any outfit you’re wearing.
How to Wear a Shacket
Shackets are one of the most versatile pieces in your closet and can be paired with most anything! You can pair them with leggings and sneakers over a long sleeve t-shirt for running errands, over a dress with booties for a date night or paired with skinny jeans and a turtleneck for a day at the office.
There are so many ways to wear a shacket and here are some of my favorites!
