How To Style: Plus Size Shackets


back to blog

What is a shacket?

We thought we’d clear this up just in-case you hadn’t been paying attention to one of our favourite outerwear pieces of the season! A shacket is basically a layering piece that sits somewhere between a shirt and a jacket. It tends to be lighter than a jacket, making it perfect to layer over knits and hoodies, but heavier than a shirt so you can wear it as a warm layer throughout the colder months. They feature aspects of shirts, such as buttons and collars as well. We’ve been seeing them more and more this season, so much that they’re now a must-have in our wardrobes!

Keep reading to discover our top 5 plus size shackets, from check shackets to teddy shackets and how we’ll be styling them.
