Shackets are super popular these days, and I’m seeing options everywhere for fall. What’s a shacket? It’s a slightly oversized shirt/jacket hybrid in a fabric that feels heavier than a shirt but not as thick as a jacket.
The reactions to what my mannequin was modeling last Wednesday tells me that women have a love-hate relationship with this look and many of you are considering them.

The look appealed to so many of you, I decided to recreate a version at a more budget-friendly price…adding accessories to finish the look.
Ways to wear a shacket this fall, and look more feminine
Shackets are typically oversized, so sizing down will give you a more feminine shape.
They’re often in a plaid, fleece which can have a lumberjack vibe so look for solids or prints if you want to dial that look back.
The buttons the chest pocket flaps often have large contrasting buttons, which adds to its rustic appeal so look for buttons the same color as the fabric.
They’re boxy by nature so what you wear under them makes a big difference. Try softer fabrics and tonal colors to elongate your look. A column of color also works beautifully.
Footwear needn’t match the rustic feel of the shacket so try flats or booties with an oval, or more pointed toe to elongate your look.
Here’s a more urban, less rustic outfit that has a more sophisticated vibe.
