How to Wear Shackets: October’s Essential Layer

It’s that confusing time of year when your outerwear goes through an identity crisis. Cardis become coats, and your in-between layers (dusters, trenches) emerge from hiding.

Combining the warmth of a jacket with the effortlessness of a shirt, the shacket is perfect for awkward weather. Layered over jeans for the pub or contrasted with glam leather skinnies, it’s an autumn essential we can really get behind.

Today we’re celebrating shackets in all their cosy forms, and we’ve included some tips to help you nail this suit-all style just in time for October.

On warmer autumn days, this navy checked shacket looks fab layered over your fave crop top (yes, you *can* still wear them in autumn) Pair with light wash denim and ankle boots, and take this comfy cover-up on shopping trips and mate dates.
