SHIRT + JACKET = SHACKET

By Style Feed Staff, 19 October 2017

Is it a shirt? Is it a jacket? Ohhhh, it’s both. A portmanteau (that English Lit degree comes in handy once in a while) of shirt and jacket, the shacket strikes somewhere between the two on the sartorial scale.

Think of the shacket as an upgrade to the humble shirt silhouette for those tricky transitional seasons – we’re talking thick, woven fabrics and rugged colourways.

Or think of it as a dialled-down take on the bomber jacket in lighter-weight cotton, finished with shirt cuffs. However you classify it, the shacket is your autumn go-to.

Opt for a red check number like this ASOS one and wear over a textural knit. Then, team with some worn-in dark-washed jeans to nicely bring out the navy patterning.

Leave undone for a jacket effect or button up and top off with a parka or monochrome overcoat to fend off the rain.

To make sure that your ’fit incorporates one of this season’s most hype colours, go for a shacket in a light khaki shade. Wear this ASOS version over a plain white tee for a crisp, minimal look.

Pair your top half with black wide-leg trousers to keep your style understated, but remember to leave the buttons undone to keep the shacket vibes going strong.

Style it with matching trews for a two-piece with an old-school twist, and finish off with a relaxed pair of Converse One Stars to create a preppy, laid-back feel.
