The shirt jacket – or shacket – is the transitional jacket of dreams. Part jacket, part shirt, it’ll answer all your spring style needs as it was made for layering over hoodies, sweatshirts, knits, tees and spring dresses too. Perfect for those garden picnics and park meet-ups or what?
Since the shacket trend exploded on the high street, it’s graduated from the traditional checked or beige shacket to shackets in shearling, jersey, cord, boucle, brights and leather too. From H&M to New Look, shop the best shackets on the high street…
