The shacket: your new sartorial hero

What do you get when you cross a jacket with a shirt? A shacket, of course! Here’s our pick of the best to take you into autumn, from local stores to high street staples.

Parisienne chic

Isabel Marant Garvey shaket from 32 The Guild

This luxe cotton-lined wool number by cult bohemian French designer Isabel Marant is a real investment piece and it nails all the right vibes with its boxy, masculine tailoring, sleeves you can roll up and all natural fibres. Get yours from Northampton boutique 32 The Guild.

Stand to attention

From Bucks-based and online boutique Heidi & Hudson (there are stores in Amersham and Gerrards Cross) the khaki colour, shoulder detail and pockets give this 100% cotton shacket a subtle, chic military feel. Roll up the sleeves for a casual cool vibe.

Lady in leather

A leather jacket is a wardrobe staple and instantly ups the cool creds of any outfit. For a lightweight option to see you through the end of summer and into the cooler months we adore this 100% leather option with contrasting topstitch from Topshop. Also available in Ercru.

Work it

The burnt orange colour on this organic & Other Stories workwear jacket is perfect for transitioning into autumn (you’ll be twinning with the leaves). For warmer climes, style with white trainers and lighter denim to brighten the look.

Wonder wool

Swedish brand Monki is excellent for basics, separates and outerwear including this wool blend tartan shacket in muted tones. Keep it simple with plain jeans and a t-shirt, or wear over a clashing ditsy floral print in a similar colour palette for maximum impact.

Struck a cord

Add interest and texture to your outfit with this corduroy H&M number. The D-ring belt will cinch in your waist, plus the press studs and pockets give the piece a trendy utilitarian style. Very cool.

Do it like a dude

Shackets look best when they’re oversized and an easy way to achieve this look is to head straight to the men’s department. Inspired by French workwear, this 100% cotton option from H&M’s chic sister brand ARKET has a slightly boxy fit to nail the look.

Update your denim

The classic denim jacket gets a 2020 reboot in this neat option from COS with crisp clean lines and gorgeous indigo colour. The quirky curved collar adds extra sartorial suave.
