6 Stylish And Functional ‘Shackets’ To Try On

Jan 17, 2018 9:00:00 AM


We all know (and love to wear) jackets, and it’s our go-to piece for keeping warm in style. The term “shacket”, however, is starting to gain popularity. What’s a shacket, you ask?

It’s a classic piece toeing the line between shirt and jacket. These normally take the form of a button-down shirt made of thicker material like wool blends or fleece. In the slightly cooler months of the year, they’re great for layering without sacrificing comfort.

Check out some of our favorites which you can get online, each one a great balance of substance and value for money.

Suitable for casual Fridays, the great outdoors, or evenings in the city, your denim shacket will be a comfortable and sharp look. It’s unlined, so it won’t feel stuffy when you wear it outdoors. 

Denim naturally resists wind, so take it with you on trips to Tagaytay or Baguio.

Zippers on shackets are slightly less formal, but are better at keeping you warm.

Add this layer to your outfit without looking bulky. Black pieces in particular make you look leaner.

Stand out in your favorite prints or patterns. Camouflage, floral, and painter prints made up a big part of fashion trends in the last 12 months, and you likely already have your favorite.

Keep the rest of your outfit—tops, pants, and accessories—simple and functional to make visual room for your bold new shacket.
