Autumn Style... THE SHACKET

Fashion is always surprising us with the weird, wild and wonderful...taking us down paths of interesting colours, patterns, styles, and fits. And this season we're seeing a unique outerwear style for our Autumn/Winter wardrobes...

the SHACKET.

What exactly is a 'shacket'? 

It's somewhere in the middle of a SHIRT and a JACKET.

Think boyfriend shirt = but more structured a la trench coat. 
A flannelette style shirt = but styled like a bomber jacket.
A denim jacket = but longer past the waist like a thick un-tucked shirt.

There are buttons to pay homage to the shirt family, and belts and pockets to represent its jacket roots. If there is one thing we know for sure about this elusive new ensemble, it's that it is versatile!

STYLE TIP: if you love to layer, the shacket is for you!
And an even hotter tip? Most shackets can also be worn as dresses - think blazer dress or shirt dress. I don't want to jump the gun and call that the 'dracket'... but.. you heard it here first!
