SHIRT + JACKET = SHACKET

By Style Feed Staff, February 20, 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 colorways.

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

Nail 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-gray smart pants to give your getup a sophisticated edge. Pop on a pair of monochrome Converse sneakers to tie your subdued ensemble together.

Rejecting dark hues and experimenting with bright colors has been the sartorial zeitgeist for FW18, 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.
