Trend Alert: How Shackets are Redefining Spring Outerwear

Let's talk shackets! You know – those hybrids that bring together the breeziness of a shirt's breeziness and warmth of a jacket, and are quickly becoming a must-have for anyone who appreciates a good style flex. With spring's weather being all over the place, the shacket is taking centerstage as the ideal solution for those brisk mornings and cool evenings – versatile, with a sense of flair.

Why Shackets?

It’s all about that uncanny ability to straddle the line between casual and formal, warmth and breathability, making them the perfect companion for almost any occasion. You can start your day with a random coffee meet-up, walk confidently into your workplace, and end with an evening out with friends. The shacket blends into each scenario while being practical – like you get with the lightweight yet warm fabric of the  Beige Houndstooth Shacket, giving you just the right amount of protection without the bulk of a traditional jacket.

With their adaptability, you can easily layer your shacket over a tee for a relaxed look or pair it with a button-down for a more refined outfit. Let’s look at how you can score that winning look:

Styling Tips for Shackets

Casual Outfits

When you want a laid-back effect:

  • Layer Smart: Start with a basic tee or a lightweight sweater as your base. Add one of our standout shackets, like the Beige Houndstooth Shacket, for an effortlessly chic look. Its neutral tones and subtle pattern make it a versatile choice that can be paired with jeans or chinos alike.
  • Denim Companions: For a classic, rugged look, team up our Umber Black Tweed Shacket with your favorite pair of denim. The texture of the tweed against the denim creates a visually interesting contrast, perfect for a day out in the city or a casual meet-up with friends.
  • Accessorize Wisely: Accessories can elevate any outfit. Consider a beanie or a cap and a pair of sustainable sneakers to complement your look. The key is to keep it simple and let the shacket be the focal point of your outfit.
  • Color Coordination: Play around with colors but keep the overall palette earthy and muted to match the spring vibe. The Dried Plum Navy Check Shacket offers a pop of color while still maintaining an understated elegance that’s perfect for casual settings.

Dressier Looks

These are for more formal occasions:

  • Smart Pairing: Combine our Dried Plum Navy Check Shacket with a crisp, white button-down shirt and dark slacks. This ensemble works great for casual Fridays at the office or an evening dinner date.
  • Texture and Layering: Utilize the texture of the shacket to add depth to your outfit. The Umber Black Tweed Shacket, with its rich tweed fabric, pairs beautifully over a fine-knit sweater and tailored trousers, offering a sophisticated yet approachable look.
  • Footwear Matters: Swap out casual shoes for a pair of leather boots or loafers to instantly dress up your shacket. Small change, big overall effect.
  • Minimalist Accessories: A leather belt, a watch with a leather strap, or a simple pocket square can add a touch of elegance without overpowering the shacket. Choose accessories that complement the colors in your shacket for a cohesive look.
