The key to nailing fall fashion with both style and comfort is layering. The weather can be unpredictable with temperatures fluctuating throughout the day, which is why it's important to have a light jacket that can be shed when the sun comes out or thrown over your shoulders as it gets chillier. Plus, there's a sartorial benefit to fall layers — more pieces to mix and match to reflect your personal style. This year, the must-have outerwear item is the shacket.
The shacket is exactly what it sounds like: a hybrid of a shirt and a jacket. It has the button-up style of a flannel or menswear shirt with the sturdier, not to mention warmer, feel of a jacket. They are typically plaid, but as you'll see as you keep reading, they don't have to be. With the trend only rising in popularity, you are sure to find a shacket that works for your wardrobe needs.
In fact, by far the best thing about shackets is their versatility. With the right styling, they can be the finishing touch on all kinds of outfits, regardless of style or occasion. Below, we break down four different (but equally adorable) ways to wear the shacket.
