One of the best parts about fall fashion is the infinite number of outfits you can put together with just a few staple pieces. (Seriously, the limit does not exist.) Your chunky sweaters pair perfectly with skinny jeans, as well as with your wide-leg pants. Your slim-fit turtleneck looks great tucked into a skirt with knee-high boots, but it can also be just as easily worn with your favorite high-waisted pants. And now, there’s a new layer that’s here to make any fall wardrobe even cozier: the shacket, aka the shirt jacket trend.

What is a shacket, you ask? It looks like a shirt, but layers like a jacket. It’s heavy enough to provide some warmth, but not too heavy when you find the temperatures creeping into the late sixties when the forecast *clearly* stated a high of 64 degrees last time you checked. (Weathermen these days just can’t get it right, can they?) It’s the perfect middle ground between a shirt and a jacket. And when layered over your outfit on a mild fall day, a next-level ensemble is born.

Think of a shacket as the fall solution to jean jackets (which, IMO, are better worn in the spring and summer). They come in a variety of fabrics—from corduroy to fleece—and are the perfect finishing touch to any fall outfit. Whether you live in leggings during the fall or never take off your autumnal denim, there are so many shackets just waiting to elevate your fall lewks. Scroll down to shop our faves, and prepare to get cozy AF.
