HOW TO STYLE A SHACKET FOR WINTER

The women’s checked shacket is the perfect layer for now

Meet the shacket, a hybrid of a shirt and jacket that’s often checked and usually worn a tad oversized. Thicker than a shirt, but thinner than your big winter coat, it’s the perfect layering piece and can be worn all year round. Choose from this blue checked shacket (pictured) or the neutral shacket, plus we have a Per Una shacket in shades of blue and white. Right now, beat the chill when you’re working from home by wearing it instead of a cardigan. On milder days, throw it over a roll-neck jumper and jeans or a cute dress, thick tights and chunky boots before you head out. When the temperature plummets, add a big coat. Come spring, throw it over a white T-shirt and your favourite denim pieces for a low-effort look.
