If you’ve ever worn a shirt and been too cold only to put on a coat and be too hot, it’s time to discover the shirt jacket. Known for its glorious in-between weight, shirt jackets, coined shackets, are the ultimate transitional garment. And, given many shackets are designed in plaid or furry, textured fabrics, they’re especially fantastic for fall.
Naturally, this means that we’ve already made room in our closets for a few new buys. But, with so many to choose from, which are worth clicking “add to cart?” To save you from the same debate, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite shackets for the chilly days ahead. Buy one, two, three, or all 10 — you won’t regret it!
With hints of olive, charcoal, and cream, this high-contrast fuzzy flannel is a bold option for fall. And, thanks to its longline silhouette, you could potentially even wear it as a mini dress.
Burgundy, burnt orange, and cream — can you think of a cozier color combo? It’s as if nature’s fall foliage has splayed itself right on the fabric of this comfy shacket.
Buffalo plaid is always a good idea veering into the holidays. Pair it with an insanely smooth sherpa and it’s an undeniable addition to your cool-weather wardrobe.
While many shackets are created in autumn-friendly palettes, some go beyond the olive and burnt orange color palette. Case in point: this pretty pink number. The drop-shoulder, loose-fitting silhouette pairs perfectly with leggings, though it can be worn just as easily with jeans.
Not all shackets are flannel though! This navy blue one comes in a hefty corduroy that’s cozy and warm but not too heavy.
Crave a different texture? This fuzzy sherpa is a shoo-in for folks who love to feel like they’re snuggled up all day long.
Love the idea of a fuzzy jacket but know you’d get a white one dirty as soon as you put it on? This moss-green number will be a better bet for your needs.
Remember how we said that shackets can go beyond plaid? They can go beyond solid colors, too. Just look at this bandana masterpiece.
Leather lovers, we have good news: Shackets come in the shiny black goodness too. And, with this one, you even get some fringe!
If you’re worried that shackets are a tad too untailored for your liking, this belted option will be a great segue into the trend.
