There are trends and then there are ‘TRENDS’! It’s safe to say the Shacket is the latter and it’s here to stay. Although it’s a name that people seem to love to hate, (I mean if you say Shacket over and over to yourself it doesn’t make sense anymore) however we all love the Shirt-Jacket!
After scouring the high-street, well…the online high-street, I found a few absolute crackers but one in particular reigned supreme!
The beauty of this particular wardrobe staple is there is a style to suit everybody, and it can carry you through from casual all the way to chic with a few tweaks.
The Pink Shacket of candy floss dreams won my heart at first sight, I loved twisting it looks about to create 4 different looks. It’s longline, which brings a different feel to a lot of the ‘shirt length’ styles that are currently available.
Easy Does It
At the moment cosy and casual is the order of the day, but it doesn’t always have to be trackies and a hoodie. This look was possibly my favourite as I’m a casual girl through and through. Having my favourite white joggers on with a pair on trainers with a pop of colour on was always a strong start for me.
I teamed it with a super cute white T-shirt with a small embroidered red lips motif on, tucked into the joggers. Add the spun sugar shacket and you have the perfect look for spring walks, Sunday coffees and the school run with no fuss.
Up a Notch
The next look I pulled together was still going with a very laidback, spring feel but stepped it up a notch but adding a distressed, slim fit mom jean (I’m a sucker for a ripped jean). I threw a lightweight white sweatshirt with a polaroid design on the front. The jumper itself is slightly cropped, so I sized up to a 14 for a more oversized fit. Add the shacket and you have the easiest ensemble to make you look pulled together with minimal effort.
Black is the New Black.
How wrong can you go with a black pair of leather look leggings and a black hoodie? The answer is… you cannot go wrong. It has a little bit of edge to it with the trousers and the relaxed feel with the hoodie. Then it’s up to you if you want to have a chunky black trainer or even a black boot would look ace.
What I love about this is you wouldn’t necessarily think to add the powder pink shacket to the cool black, but the two being so contrasting really make a cool combo.
This final look seemed to be the crowd pleaser, the same distressed mom jean, a light plain white T, a blush trainer obviously the baby bink longline shacket and I added a really sweet cream box style handbag with a bangle detailed handle, that little detail instantly added a little elegance to a classic and very classy look.
Shacket For Life
Converted to the shacket life, I enjoy how I can lift even the simplest of outfits and it’s also great for this time of year where you still need a jacket but not your winter coat and this piece of pink perfection is just the breath of spring freshness, we all need.
