As we enter the warmer part of our year, and say goodbye to our winter cozies, there is one item that I am happy to welcome into our wardrobe this season, the Shacket. For those of you not familiar with the term, a shacket is essentially a slightly oversize shirt-jacket hybrid that’s currently all over our Instagram feeds.
Though you might be ready to rush to your closet to whip out all of those sleeveless dresses and halter tops, just take a moment to remember that those blistering hot summer days during June and July also means air conditioners will be blasting at full power indoors. With that in mind, consider grabbing a good lightweight shacket to keep the goosebumps and indoor chills away. Also, shackets come in handy for those chilly summer nights when you’re out long after the sun goes down.
During these warmer months, the innovative shacket is an essential final layer that’s not as overbearing as outerwear but more substantial than the average shirt or blouse. For summer, I love adding a pop of color to my wardrobe, so when I saw this Lovers + Friends Shacket in Lavender from Revolve, I knew it was the perfect item to add to my wardrobe this season that will transform tired basics and will double up as a make-shift blanket when needed.
Revolve has been my go-to place for Summer shackets and I can honestly say they look good on everyone and are ideal for layering over basic tees and dresses. Shackets can even be worn buttoned up for an oversized shirt kinda vibe.
I’ve got you covered and rounded up the very best lightweight summer shackets of the season below, all from Revolve.
