The Versatile Shacket Is All You Need to Transition From Winter to Spring

  • 7519

If last year was all about dressing comfortably at home, this will certainly be the year of finding ways to bring indoor essentials outside and into our everyday lives, whether it’s a pair of Ugg slippers, public-worthy pajamas, or the shacket (aka: the shirt jacket). The style is as if the best button-down top married a roomy jacket, and together they gave birth to an effortlessly versatile wardrobe essential.

When I don’t feel like changing out of my pajamas, but need to hop on a quick FaceTime call, I throw on a shacket over my shoulders and—voilà—I’m ready to go. And it’s not just an indoor wardrobe hack. Recently, several celebrities were spotted relying on the transitional layering piece outside of their homes, including Katie Holmes and Joan Smalls

Lily Collins has been a source of shacket outfit inspiration over the last couple of weeks. Her recent paparazzi pictures prove the shacket’s versatility. She’s layered the boxy top over T-shirts and turtlenecks, proving a mastery of French style that outpaces her Emily in Paris character. Even new mom Gigi Hadid knows how much of a difference throwing one on can make. During a recent coffee run in NYC, she styled a knee-length, plaid shacket over a denim-on-denim outfit. Take it from the celebs: it’s an easy layering technique we all can adopt into our winter wardrobe.

Since there are so many lightweight options, the trend will surely last well into spring, as it’s perfect for transitional dressing. If you’re in need of some outfit inspiration or curious to find the best shackets for women, read on for our favorite looks and options below.
