It’s a silly, made-up name for a shirt jacket, true, but don’t hold that against it. The shacket is an ideal piece of springtime outerwear: good on its own, but especially good layered. This Nili Lotan number is not cheap, but it is just so desperately perfect. Here’s one with a somewhat similar vibe that’s much cheaper
I like the idea of a tomboyish silhouette executed in pink tweed, like here.
The slit pockets on this one are a nice, handy touch.
I really dig the slightly faded-out cheetah print here.
A chic little cropped jacket that’d be great with dresses.
I like the subdued look of this wool and cashmere specimen from Vince, and it’s currently marked down.
I am twenty kinds of crazy for this houndstooth jacket: it’s so bold and graphic.
Here’s another not-unpricey choice, but the color combination is just so good.
A handy, lightweight quilted liner jacket from Rains.
I dig the fuzzy texture here.
This fleece option also comes in black, but of course I’m taken with these pops of yellow.
Wide wale corduroy in a great burnt orange is so classically preppy.
I certainly wouldn’t last long before staining this polished wool jacket, but maybe one of you could.
And finally: I am all about this joyous combination of color and pattern.
