5 OF THE BEST SHACKETS
By Steven Potter, 4 March 2021
For the still slightly warmer days ahead, a simple utility-style overshirt is your tricky-weather wingman. With the utility trend’s pocket-heavy vibes seemingly here to stay, a style like this has longevity. Team with your favourite skinny or relaxed jeans, or go full utility with the matching trousers and bucket hat.
THE DATE-NIGHT ONE
ASOS DESIGN 90s oversized chunky irregular cord shirt in pastel lilac, £28
Since we're all still at home RN, you're probs looking for something that says 'yes I made an effort, but yes I'm still comfy AF', and we've found a winner with this overshirt. Perfect for cute outdoor dates with your plus one, this pastel tone shouts spring, while the chunky cord will keep you (and your other half) cosy 😍
THE 'IT'S KINDA CHILLY' ONE
ASOS DESIGN wool mix shacket in tobacco, £55
For those cooler days, you might need a little more than just your standard twill overshirt. The cosy contender is made from a soft wool-mix fabric, perfect for seeing you all through the season's breezier days and beyond. A spring alternative to black, this deep tobacco tone has an added goes-with-everything bonus.
THE ONE FOR WHEN DAYS OUT TURN INTO NIGHTS OUT
In the UK, it's inevitable that at some point, there’ll be a spring day so cold, it'll catch you unawares and have you shivering in your jeans and t-shirt. With this faux wool number, you'll be prepped for when your park picnic just isn't feeling so balmy anymore. This ever-cool check is made from super-soft brushed flannel, for an ultra-cosy feel.
THE STATEMENT ONE
Bershka faux leather shacket in black, £49.99
Let’s be fair, getting dressed isn't always about the practical weather-beating skills. Sometimes, you just want a shirt that’s gonna get you noticed and have you feeling like you pulled your look together with finesse. Well, this is that shirt. Heavy on late 90s/early 2000s vibes, this faux-leather option makes a statement, whilst still being pretty wearable.
