4 STEEZY SHACKETS

By Style Feed Staff, 25 February 2019

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.

Carhartt WIP is the GOAT when it comes to hard-wearing apparel. The newest drop from the workwear specialists includes this Michigan Chore shacket. The heavyweight denim is designed to fade over time in high-wear areas, resulting in a more unique, lived-in vibe. It basically gets better with age.

With a corduroy collar, contrast stitching and workwear-style pockets, consider multiple trend boxes thoroughly ticked. A sound sartorial investment if there ever was one. Pair with a simple white tee and matching rinse-washed jeans for a coordinated, utility-led look.

If you don’t know by now, tonal, sandy hues and shades of brown are right up there with the more in-your-face neon shades of 2019’s key colour stories. This stripped-back ASOS DESIGN shacket keeps things simple and ranks highly on the ‘go with everything’ spectrum.

Ideal for smart-casual getups, it’s also made from a wool-mix blend, so you can shrug off those unexpected temperature drops as the transitional spring weather approaches. Fully tap into the tonal trend and opt for off-white cords with chunky trainers featuring matching sandy-coloured accents.

As far as trends go, old-school American varsity is a certified ‘always coppable’ look. New Era has been delivering authentic US sportswear styles and Ivy League vibes for nearly a century and has just dropped this pinstriped piece, inspired by heritage baseball jackets. Peep that embroidered New York design and signature logo, too.

Keep the look clean with a grey New Era sweat underneath and bring it all together with black, wide-leg trousers. And for making the most of your footwear choice, pick up some trews in a cropped length. As far as jackets go, consider this a layering home run.

With bold colours acting as the cornerstone of any fresh 2019 ‘fit, it's easy to channel the same feel for your layered look, too. Snap up this red and white coach jacket from ASOS DESIGN featuring an eye-popping, all-over text print and – there you have it – a one-piece way of living a more colourful existence.

A white T-shirt will make sure that design really stands out, so try some simple black jeans below unless you want to go all out and match your bottoms, too. If so, fair play. Team with fresh kicks and, for a super-steezy finish, grab a pair with matching red accents. Red and white checkerboard Vans should do the trick.
