Cold weather is fast approaching, my friend. (Can you believe it?!) There's nothing harder than trading swimsuits and summer dresses for thick, heavy clothes—but! We mustn't forget that before the temperature really drops, we have the transitional season of fall that gives us the type of weather that's too hot for a coat, but too cold for just a light sweater. It can be challenging to figure out how to bundle up without worrying about sweating through layers! Thankfully there's a fashion trend that's perfect for this type of ~sartorial conundrum~. The shirt jacket, also known as the shacket.
Before you say it: No, it's not your regular, ol' button-up shirt. A shacket is a slightly oversized shirt-jacket hybrid that is just *chef's kiss* for layering. It's thicker than your average top and yet thinner than your winter parka, so you can count on it to keep you warm on a brisk fall day, without all the extra bulk.
Our top picks for the best shackets of 2023:
If you're on the hunt for some of the best shackets the internet has to offer, then you've come to the right place. From plaid and leather ones to denim and graphic options, you'll find it all, below.
