The Shacket Is The Fall Fashion MVP – Here Are Some Of Our Favorites

It’s not a shirt, it’s not a jacket, but a secret third thing formally referred to as The Shacket. They are more lightweight than a jacket but sturdier than a button-down shirt. Often with a collar and a bit of a utility style, shackets are perfect for layering and therefore perfect for fall weather (at least that’s what a LA gal like me can only assume since I am writing this in 80-degree weather. Seriously, where is fall??). If you’ve been paying attention to the last few fashion posts you probably can guess that the EHD team is no stranger to this fall staple. So first, we thought we would share the ones we already have and how we like to style them.


Denim Ames Oversized Shirt-Jacket in Corrigan Wash: If you are in the market, this shacket is GOOD. Not too stiff/heavy, not too floppy/wrinkly – with a good amount of structure and layerability. I’m wearing a small here. Please note both styles of pockets.

Britt Work Jacket: This striped one is lighter weight – more like a thick shirt, which is good over a thin shirt or a tank top but doesn’t layer as well over a thicker shirt or a sweatshirt. 

Denim Shirred-Back Crop Shirt: This is more so a denim shirt, but because of the crop and boxy shape, it can double as a shacket if worn open. I paired it with this with a ‘Let’s Go Outside’ shirt, denim shorts, and sneakers for a casual running errands look.


Women’s Utility Chore Jacket: My shacket is $35 and so comfy. I sized down to an XS and I have very long arms so I’d recommend going on the smaller size unless you wanna really lean into the oversized fit (which is also cool). The color is one of my favorite colors to wear and is generally hard to find, and I’ve been getting lots of compliments on it which always feels good 🙂


Workwear Shacket: Every time I wear this I get a ton of compliments and most people are surprised when I tell them it’s not a million dollars. I love the workwear vibe and oversized fit and usually lean into the bagginess with loose-fitting pants or jeans. I am wearing a size large so if you want a more snug fit, I would suggest sizing down.

Now assuming we have done our jobs and have convinced you of the shacket’s versatility, here are some more picks if you are interested:

Now I’m obsessed with the Rawson chore coat. I’ve had an Etsy gift card I’ve been trying to decide how best to spend, and I may have finally found it. Thanks for sharing!

I don’t see the striped jacket Emily is wearing- the Brit Jacket by Alex Mill. Perhaps this fabric isn’t available anymore? Shame cause I LOVE it!

I love the work jacket that @designmom found in her old house in France and that they are still being made by the same company all these years later. Ever since reading her IG stories (she has a “Work Jacket” highlight save that shows how she cleaned and mended it), I’ve been ever so tempted to order one from the company:

Would it be possible to add the size ranges somewhere in these fashion posts? In the spirit of size inclusivity, it would be nice to not have to click on individual links and be disappointed the item isn’t offered in my size.

Don’t forget the LLBean – they have had corduroy shirts like this for decades!
