This Jacket Style Is So Now, and I'm Here for It

It's time to welcome the shacket into your wardrobe this season. For those not familiar with the term, a shacket is essentially a slightly oversize shirt-jacket hybrid that’s currently blowing up our Insta feeds and dominating at all our favorite stores right now.

So what's so great about it, you ask? Shackets are the absolute perfect layering piece through winter and spring. Their popular wool blend and leather styles makes them thicker than your average shirt, but thinner than your heavy winter coat so you can easily layer them over a turtleneck and under an overcoat throughout the colder temps. When spring arrives, you can throw it on over a lightweight tee with little effort required.

They look fresh buttoned up as a shirt and effortlessly cool undone as a jacket, and they exude a seriously cool fashion-girl look that is so right now. And the best part? They suit literally everyone. So if you want an easy and cool way to look on-trend as we transition from winter to spring, consider the shacket your essential, new hero piece. I'm here for the trend with these chic options I've found below, and perhaps you will be too.
