Shackets have recently been bombarding Insta feeds and dominating major fashion stores. What’s a shacket, you may ask? As the name suggests, it’s basically a shirt jacket. Shackets look like shirts but are usually thicker, sturdier and worn as outerwear.
One of the best parts about cold-weather fashion is versatile layering, and shackets just happen to be the perfect layering piece. These transitional hybrid toppers are an alternative to denim jackets and easily add warmth without weighing you down. Styling the shacket may seem daunting in this constantly changing weather, but there are many options that can elevate your look. Plus, you’ll get a ton of wear out of them.
We’ve prepared four Insta-ready sets to spice up your IG feeds. Scroll down to see them all!
