What is cozy like a jacket, light like a shirt, and found in cool girls’ wardrobes? A shacket — the hybrid winter staple is a cross between a shirt and a jacket. Shackets offer the warmth of a jacket and the ease of an overshirt all rolled into one – perhaps the reason behind the piece’s tremendous popularity.

While the utility trend peaked in the western world during fall, our Middle Eastern “winter” wardrobes are still tucked away deep into our closets under all the beach and resort wear. Since winter in the UAE peaks from December to January, it leaves you with ample time to invest in the winter essential. Not only are shackets super versatile, but they are also perfect for the light Middle Eastern winters.

Still unconvinced about investing in one? Well, this might do the trick. Scroll down to discover not one but four different ways of styling the shacket.

1

With Head-to-Toe Monochrome

This winter, ditch your blazer in favor of a well-tailored shacket. Need some style inspiration? We love influencer Damilola Owoade’s monochromatic power-dressing look – do try this at home.

With a Touch of Comfort

Influencer Alicia Roddy’s off-duty shacket style looks so comfortable that she’s got us wishing we could live in it. We particularly love her oversized two-tone checkered shacket that she’s teamed up with a pair of matching joggers and chunky sneakers.

With Leather Pants

Winter dressing has never been easier – influencer Emelie Lindmark’s effortless checkered shacket plus leather pants ensemble is proof. Alternatively, you can even pair it with leather shorts.

As a Dress

The beauty of a shacket undoubtedly lies in the fact that you can simply throw it on on just about any outfit or even wear it by itself as a dress. If you prefer an oversized silhouette simply button up and team it with a pair of boots à la Roddy. For a fitted look, cinch the waist using a contrast belt.
