What The Hell Is A Shacket?

Last week I was doing some online shopping (slaps back of wrist) and I was looking in particular for a lightweight khaki jacket. Think of a denim jacket, but thinner and well… khaki. It was surprisingly difficult to be honest and NOWHERE had what I was looking really for. In the end I stumbled upon a ‘Lightweight Shacket‘ from Topshop.


Well after 2 seconds of actually switching my brain on I realised it was a shirt-jacket (duh). And yeah, it was pretty perfect. It’s like a lightweight denim type jacket and it’s got that whole can wear in summer and winter vibe. When the delivery man came (big up to Kulwinder who literally delivers things to me on nearly a daily basis) I tried it on and instantly LOVED it. In comes a casual outfit post wearing the beauty.


















Jacket – Topshop

Pinafore – Boohoo (and similar here)

Tee – Topshop

Converse – ASOS

Nothing beats a denim pinafore with some sexy low-top converse and I love the contrast of the blue denim with the khaki. Gimme all the khaki this season because I am L-O-V-I-N it (enter mcdonalds jingle).

Lemme know your thoughts on the shacket and the outfit as a whole!

    I’ve been seeing these pop up in a few shops, new look had a TONNE! I am quite tempted, but the name makes me giggle – it’s a shirt shacking up with a jacket 😛 It’s like when Jeggings came onto the scene, then treggings… i felt so behind!
