The humble ‘shacket’ has come a long way in the past year. High street retailers such as H&M, Mango and Zara have all dabbled with cute shirt-jacket hybrid styles in recent months, and they’ve been a hit with the Instagram set.
The latest to hit the mainstream is this unique frayed version by none other than ASOS, and it’s a little different from its predecessors. This version not only comes in an eye-catching blue hue (many others tend to be in neutral tones), it also features bold frayed detailing all around the front and back.
The Wool Check Fringed Coat is designed by ASOS’ premium range ASOS White, which makes ‘elevated everyday pieces with a modern twist.’ It features a spread collar, side pockets, and a relaxed fit for a ‘slouchy’ silhouette.
Because it’s by ASOS White, the cover-up does have a slightly higher price tag than you would be used to with the high street retailer, but depending on your budget, might still be in reach. It costs £120, and if you ask us, it’s worth every penny – especially if you managed to track down an elusive ASOS discount code.
With the seasons set to change in coming months, a shacket is a perfect lightweight option to invest in. This one is still made from a wool-blend, meaning it’ll definitely keep you warm despite also being a jacket style.
And we’re not the only ones who are loving this beautiful piece; celebrities and bloggers alike are showing it off all over Instagram. Ex-member of The Saturdays Vanessa White wore hers recently, along with a cross-body bag, some oversized hoops and a black top.
Influencer Tara Maynard was also spotted in the garment, which was worn over a casual white outfit.
The coat is currently in stock online in sizes 4 to 18, but we recommend snapping it up quickly if you have your eye on it – as you can see, it’s proving rather popular!
