What is a shacket?

A modern day must-have, a shacket looks like a classic shirt, but is slightly heavier and larger like a jacket. They’re also super versatile, so you can wear them with just about anything, from your favourite jeans to fitted trousers, and with shorts in summer and under coats in winter.

In other words, a good shacket is an all-rounder. Easy to dress up or down, both during the day and the night, they’re worth having in a selection of styles and shades to maximise their pairing potential. And, when it comes to choice, quality, and value, you can’t beat Matalan’s range.

Are shackets meant to be oversized?

Similar to a jacket, shackets are larger than standard shirts. However, not every shacket comes in an oversized fit. In fact, while you can get shackets in this more relaxed style, there are also fitted shackets on offer which are perfect for those dressier days.

The oversized shacket is one that works well with jeans and tees to create laidback, off-duty looks. Khakis, navies, and check designs are just some of the shades you could opt for to make the most of this style, while more classic colours like black, grey, and stone will create a more polished finished.

What can you wear with a shacket?

The beauty of a shacket is that it’s easy to pair with your everyday staples. Got a favourite pair of jeans, shorts, or trousers? Make them that bit more trendy by teaming them with a shacket. Shackets are also great for layering with shirts, sweatshirts and coats on colder days.

Perfect for everyday dressing, whatever it is you’re doing, the way you style a shacket can make it appropriate for almost any occasion. While it’s always wise to opt for a suit for formal events, your workwear, weekend wardrobe, and outfits in between could all benefit from the addition of a stylish shacket.

When can you wear a shacket?

Shackets can be worn all year round, but they’re at their best as a light layer on spring or autumn days. Often crafted from wool or a comfortable cotton blend, the heavier-weight material of a shacket can warm up jeans and T-shirt combos and add cosiness when buttoned over hoodies.

Truly a style staple for any day of the week (no matter what the weather is) you can find shackets of all different fabrics right here on the Matalan website. Comfortable and durable without ever shirking on style, the selection we stock will see you through the year.

Shackets are one of the biggest trends of today, which is great news for anyone who values versatility in their wardrobe. From button-up options for work to twin pocket styles suitable for your next night out, these suave staples can be found in a variety of fabrics, colours, and fits.
