Shackets For Women

All hail the shacket! That perfect combination of warmth, comfort and ‘cool’ we all need in our wardrobe. Femme Connection is right there with you in your desire for ladies’ shackets this season. Explore our range of shackets and get yourself an outer layer that’s a little different to the standard coat or puffer.

There’s nothing quite like a shacket! They have been the rage for a while now and it doesn’t look set to change. A combination of shirt and jacket (hence the name), shackets offer a layer of warmth without the bulk of an overcoat, and with a little more structure than a simple cardigan. They can see you through most seasons of the year - even summer evenings when the temperatures drop!

How to style a girls’ shacket? It’s easy! Shackets combine well with layering, so wear your shacket over a turtleneck, mock turtleneck, t-shirt or collared shirt, and it will all work! Shackets look on-trend with jeans and shirts or dresses of any length. A shorter women's shacket with a mini skirt strikes a fun chord, and a long shacket over a maxi skirt and with chunky boots looks über stylish.

Shackets come in a range of prints and straight out solid colours. You can play around with wearing a solid colour top beneath a print shacket, or vice versa. In terms of shaping, shackets don’t really need any, but you can add a waist belt to the outside if you want to create a bit of a trench coat shape.

For total comfort, a shacket worn over a sweatshirt or hoodie is the ultimate outfit for a brisk walk with the dog. If you get too warm, they are usually lightweight enough to tie around your waist, which is just one part of the practical appeal of a shacket. Another, is the pockets! Shackets tend to have a generous number of pockets, and who doesn’t appreciate a little extra storage for keys and phone?
