16 best shackets to buy for those chilly summer evenings

Say hello to the summer jacket of dreams

The shirt jacket – or shacket – is the transitional jacket of dreams. Part jacket, part shirt, it’ll answer all your style needs as it was made for layering over loungewear, tees and summer dresses too. Chilly summer's eve? Grab your shacket and go! It's a summer fashion essential if you ask us.

Since the shacket trend exploded on the high street, it’s graduated from 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…
