One of the biggest styles trends for 2021 has got to be the shirt jacket — or the shacket if you will.

A shacket is the perfect in-between of a jacket that is a little too heavy and a shirt that is too light for those tricky days that pop up as seasons change. Think of it as your closet’s very own Goldilocks. Sometimes referred to as an overcoat, shackets are definitely the must-have outerwear for this spring.

Unsurprisingly, many shackets are plaid and resemble the tried and true flannels that make up most cold-weather wardrobes. But they really come in all shades of the rainbow, so they’re ideal for layering.

Wear a shacket over your favorite t-shirt and pair it with jeans or toss it over a sweater like you would a jean jacket. You can even ditch your typical evening wraps for an edgier shacket to keep you warm when wearing a dress or skirt. Since most styles are a bit oversized, the shirt-jacket hybrid is super versatile.

Plus, multiple celebrities have already been spotted rocking their own shackets, including the likes of Gigi Hadid, Gabrielle Union and Lily Collins.

Luckily, the fashion world moves fast, so brands at every price point already have plenty of shacket options for shoppers to choose from. From Mango and Free People to ASOS and Boohoo, this trend is super attainable. Shop six stylish shackets below at a variety of price points and start stocking up for spring.
