If you’ve taken a scroll through Instagram recently, you’ll have likely spotted a trend on the horizon. It’s called the shacket and it’s your new BFF for spring. This piece is a hybrid between a shirt and a jacket, hence the name ‘shacket’. If you’re someone who loves to layer pieces or wants to achieve the effortlessly chic look of an off-duty supermodel, the shacket is for you. We’re giving you a quick round-up of everything you need to know about this trend.
The shacket is perhaps the most versatile piece that you can add to your closet. It’s something you can wear while working from home or heading into the city for brunch with your friends. You can wear it everything from a little black dress to your favourite jeans and a t-shirt. The laid-back silhouette means the shacket is universally flattering and a staple in everyone’s closet. Whatever your style aesthetic is, you can benefit from adding the shacket to your wardrobe rotation.
The shacket looks like a button-up shirt but has the functionality of an everyday jacket. It’s embodies the idea of casual chic, whether you want to wear it with tailored black pants or flared jeans. We’re already seeing the shacket all over the street-wear community and on the Instagram feed of our favourite Instagram influencers.
You can think of the shacket as a updated version of the cardigan, just as comfortable but even more stylish. It’s a great piece for tonal dressing and you can add it to your closet in a neutral-tone shade for ultimate versatility or a pop of colour to make a statement.
Like most utilitarian pieces, the shacket takes its inspiration from the world of military clothing. Don’t let this fool you into thinking you have to wear it as part of a uniform. We’re seeing a myriad of material options for the shacket, from buttery leather options by MM6 Maison Margiela to suede shackets for a winter appropriate look.
The beauty of the shacket is that you can wear it over and under just about anything. It’s the perfect piece to wear under your heavier winter jackets when you want to layer up and it’s an ideal summer jacket for the evening when it’s a little too chill to be baring your arms. You can wear it over your favourite silk dress and a pair of stilettoes for a night-time appropriate look.
If you’re looking to make an investment into your closet, there’s nothing better that you can add for spring than a shacket. This piece is trans-seasonal, allowing you to wear it all year round. Wear it by itself for spring or layer up with scarves and a thicker jacket for the colder seasons. The soft silhouette of the shacket gives it a feminine feel, a unique feature in any military inspired piece.

Fashion Week is like the holiday season for fashion followers. It’s our favorite time of the year and a staple in our calendar. While this London Fashion Week was a unique experience thanks to the pandemic, it didn’t rob us of inspiration for our spring wardrobe. Digital presentations replaced the usual runway shows and influencers took to social media to share their outfits instead of photographers catching their street style outside events.

The first time you hear the phrase ‘Y2K’ it might stop you in your tracks. The name simply refers to the year 2000, focusing on the trends of the early 2000s up until 2010.

The Y2K trend has been made popular by Generation Z, who have come to love the trends they were too young to appreciate as children. There are Instagram accounts with hundreds of thousands of followers, dedicated to posting y2k fashion inspiration.
