The fashion industry loves a hybrid. Remember the humble coatigan, which for a while served as the perfect cosy take on outerwear? Well, that’s all well and good for late summer evenings, but from autumn onwards, it’s all about the shacket: the shirt/jacket hybrid that’ll keep you cosy in any clime.
When it’s too hot to wear a coat, yet too cool for a cardi, the shacket serves as the perfect in-betweener. It’s also incredibly versatile to style – woollen checked versions look great with jeans, knitwear and boots, while corduroy styles, military options and smarter pieces can be teamed with a dress or two-piece.
High street retailers have been making the most of the shacket trend this season, with plenty of options on the shelves with prices to suit all budgets. From H&M to Zara, Weekday to Monki and of course, plenty of M&S and Next options on the rails, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to investing in a great shacket for 2020.
So, seeing as shackets are the most versatile outerwear option to covet as the seasons change, here are our favourites to invest in now before they fly out of stock.
