The humble shacket is a brilliant go-to style for those of us who desire something for spring time weather that’ll keep us warm but won’t be too heavy. It’s the perfect jacket for wearing with layers, and comes in a bunch of different fabrics, colours and styles for all tastes.
Holly Willoughby is clearly a fan of the shacket, as proven by her latest appearance on the M&S Instagram page, where she is wearing a super cool lightweight grey version.
Alongside the lovely snap of Holly, Marks & Spencer wrote: ‘Another day, another walk. Today, we’re mixing things up and colour blocking our outfit @hollywilloughby style.’
Holly is seen to be wearing a pair of trainers and jeans, alongside a grey hoodie, which she has finished off with her grey shacket. It’s the perfect weekend casual outfit, if you ask us, and luckily you can steal her style pretty easily with this one.
The shacket in question is M&S’s ‘Utility Shacket,’ which comes in both grey marl (Holly’s chosen colour) and a vibrant cornflour blue, which is also seriously covetable. The design comes in sizes 6-24, and its description is making us want to add it to our basket as we speak: ‘Throw on this shacket for effortless off-duty style. The comfy relaxed fit, top patch pockets and curved hem create an authentic utility look. It’s a great item for layering and features a popper fastening and open cuffs that are also secured by a popper.’
The M&S shacket has five star reviews online, but shoppers do note that it tends to run a little big, so it’s perhaps worth considering sizing down. Now is the perfect time to try it though, as there’s currently 30 per cent off online. It’s therefore a thrifty £31.50 instead of £45. We may even be tempted to pick up both colours at this price!
