4 STEEZY SHACKETS

By Style Feed Staff, 19 February 2018

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 on the humble shirt silhouette for those tricky transitional seasons – we’re talking thick, woven fabrics in interesting 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 go-to.

Tick off the heritage check trend by going for this shacket from Bershka. As it’s got a central zip, wear undone with a white T-shirt underneath for a more relaxed look.

Go tonal and team your overshirt with a pair of dark-grey smart trousers to give your getup a sophisticated edge. Pop on a pair of monochrome Converse trainers to tie your subdued ensemble together.

Rejecting dark hues and experimenting with bright colours has been the sartorial zeitgeist for AW18, so show that you’re familiar with the trend by donning this mustard-yellow shacket.

Wear an off-white polo underneath it to not draw attention away from your outer layer. As your top half is relatively vibrant, keep it chilled down low and opt for a pair of mid-washed slim-fit jeans. Finish your look with off-white kicks to give your getup some Scandi-style uniformity.

When it comes to dressing for transitional weather, khaki will always prove to be a popular colour choice. Incorporate the shade into your wardrobe by selecting a wool-mix overshirt like this Brixton one.

Play around with textures and team your shacket with a black cotton tee and dark-washed jeans for a laid-back look. On foot, round off your getup with some fresh white Reebok Club Cs.
