Updated: 1/24/2021 | How to Style a Shacket

This year’s most on-trend piece is the shacket! It’s a portmanteau (a combination of two words) of shirt and jacket. You may even see it referred to as an overshirt or shirt coat.

It’s the ultimate Fall transition piece that will keep you warm and stylish before the puffy coats start to make their appearance.

And if you’re looking for ways to style your shacket, you’ve come to the right place!

How to Style a Shacket

Here are some ways you can style your shackets.

#1 Lumber Jane


You’ll need a plaid shacket for this ensemble. Complete the outfit with a beanie, vest (optional), and fashion boots. Here is the quintessential Pacific Northwest (PNW) girl’s uniform.

#2 Sporty Shacket

A shacket makes it easy to go from the gym to getting groceries! Wear a shacket over your favorite sports bra and leggings. I wore hiking boots but sneakers will work too. We love APL Bliss Sneakers ($200)!

#3 Dress it Up!


Wear a shacket over a mini dress with boots or tennis shoes of your choice. For this shot, I chose a grey sherpa jacket by Outerknown to keep me SUPER warm while my legs were exposed.

What I’m Wearing: Year of Ours Marilyn Ribbed Dress ($118) | Outerknown Woodland Sherpa Jacket ($198) | ATP ATELIER Catania Boots ($650) | QUAY Reina sunglasses ($55) | Moschino Mini Crossbody Bag ($800)

#3 That’s a Haute Shacket


Elevate your shacket with fancy heels and a sexy blouse. A shacket doesn’t always have to be worn casually.

What I’m Wearing: Tibi Spencer Plaid Workman Jacket ($995) | Ministry of Supply Aero Zero Boyfriend Shirt ($125) |  SPANX Faux Leather Leggings ($98) | ALOHAS Strappy Chain Sandals ($175)

#4 Somewhere Over the Hoodie


What I’m Wearing:  THRIFTED Military Surplus Camo Jacket ($5) | Carbon38 Saffron Yellow Hooded Sweatshirt ($120) | Upcycled DIY Criss Cross Jeans (Priceless!) | TrendHim Yellow Beanie ($38) | ATP ATELIER Catania Boots ($650)

#5 Shacket a la Dress


Wear your shacket as a dress! Style it with high knee boots and cinch it around the waist with a belt.

What I’m Wearing: Isabel Marant Etoile Faxonli Flannel Shirt Jacket ($560) | Gucci Belt ($450) | ALOHAS Strappy Chain Sandals ($175)

#6 Grunge in Seattle

Pair your shacket with cute denim shorts and a t-shirt. I added a grommeted belt to look like a rockstar and OTK boots to stay warm.
