15 Ways to Wear Shackets (+9 Shackets You’ll Love!)

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 your Target run 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 on a cold day 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 an oversized 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 are typically made of thicker fabrics. They can add a chic touch to any outfit you’re wearing.

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 favorite ways to wear them!

1. Grey Jeans, Shacket, and Nikes Combo

Flare jeans can be hard to style, especially with an oversized fit shacket. First thing to do is to get a cropped style! This will help your legs look longer and not make it look you you’re drowning in fabric.

A pair of heeled shoes will also help elongate your legs and tucking in your tee will help define your waist.

5. Fleece Shacket and Grey Jeans
