Should a shirt and jacket, say, become a celebrity couple (bear with me), we’re one step ahead with their pet name: “shacket.” As silly as it may sound, the combination is surprisingly genius. Simply put, it’s a hybrid of two essential pieces making for one, perhaps even more essential wardrobe staple. It’s something that can be dressed up or down, layered above or below, and worn nearly any season—therefore, rendering it the most perfect transitional piece as fall slowly fades into winter, and beyond.
Here, we’ve rounded up the many interpretations of what exactly a shacket can be—the possibilities, you’ll see, are truly endless. Sometimes, shackets can be playful (like Pitusa’s playful bespoke option) but other times, shackets can be more reserved (as is the case with Scotch & Soda’s buttoned-up number). Regardless, the shacket is an on-trend staple and we hope, with all of the attention it’s been getting, to see the relationship last.
A Staple Shacket With A Utilitarian Practicality
With dropped shoulders and patch pockets, Aritzia’s The Ganna shirt jacket makes for a fantastic utility-inspired staple. Available in 33 colors, four other materials, and two lengths, this particular style is made from pure merino wool.
A Playful Shacket With A Narcissistic Twist
Designed in collaboration with fine jeweler Stephanie Gottlieb, Pitusa’s playful cotton shacket is made-to-order with your name or word of choice hand-embroidered across the back. Also available in peach, each “Samantha Shacket” features rainbow fold-over cuffs
A Cropped, Collared, And Cuffed Shacket
Unlike most shackets which tend to fit oversize and boxy for a relaxed effect, Scotch & Soda’s cropped, polyester-wool blend one brings a bit of classicism to the concept. Decorated with a button-down closure, this short coat is a great solution for transitional weather.
A Wool Cashmere Shacket That’s Plaid And Padded
Another more traditional iteration of a shirt jacket, Vince’s wool cashmere shirt jacket flaunts a plaid print and structured collar for a polished effect. But it wasn’t designed in vain: it also features a padded quilt lining and deep side pockets for added warmth into the colder seasons.
A Shacket With Some Length
More coat than jacket, A.L.C.’s plaid shacket features a long, loose fit for a laidback look. Partially made from wool and alpaca, this style is particularly soft.
A Shacket For Your Western Side
Rails Tripp shacket takes on a more western sensibility with yoke details, wheat-colored plaid, patch pocket, and metal snap buttons. A lightweight flannel, it makes for an ideal layering piece.
An Oversized Boyfriend-Style Shacket
Oversized ultra-soft, Carbon38’s shacket looks like something that was borrowed from the boys. Plus, the rich brown and burnt orange color combination makes for a match made in autumnal heaven.
