8 Best Shackets On The High Street

The sun may be shining now, but before you saunter out sans coat in a cute little cami top and denim cut offs, we suggest you think twice – even if we run the risk of sounding like your dad. Because, well, Britain. We all know the perils of UK climes; just when you think it’s safe to pack away your cover-ups for two months of ‘warm’ temps, you can bet your iPhone it’ll chuck it down.

So what exactly should you wear in the rain? A shacket. Sure, it sounds unsavoury but in reality, a shacket is the only thing that’ll protect you from Britain’s volatile weather. Yep, part shirt, part jacket, this fashion hybrid will see you through anything (and we mean, anything) the British summertime throws at you.

Shoulder-robe it like uber blogger Lucy Williams when the weather turns warmer, or button up with a hoodie underneath in the rain. Layered over frocks, styled with a vest and jeans or worn as a top with shorts or skirts – the outfit ops are endless. In your face, Pac A Mac.
