As the style set established last season, few pieces are more versatile than a shacket. A practical nod to military style, its tailored shape and khaki shade makes it the piece that blends with any look, making it a wise investment.
With fashion week in full swing, we can fully appreciate a design that gets us stylishly through our schedule, from the office to meetings to drinks. With its shoulder detailing, cinched-waist and gold hardware, this Mint Velvet offering from House of Fraser, is the perfect blend of cool and classic to team with everything from figure hugging denim to fluid florals. Here’s how we’ll be styling the easy look for a host of occasions…
Perfect for off-duty, layer your shacket with skinny jeans, adding biker boots for visual balance. Juxtapose the tough footwear with feminine accessories – a practical cross-body and chic fedora are ideal for run-around days – with a flourish of red lipstick for a glam finish.
Balance out the utility aesthetic of the jacket by teaming with a floral maxi for an alternative to your usual denim look. Add sneakers to keep things casual, using a pretty blush clutch and a touch of gold jewellery to underscore the femininity of the dress.
Give your shacket a night-time spin by adding a statement skirt (we heart this metallic pleated option), adding a black polo and boots to countercheck the wow factor. Red nails and a timeless watch complete the luxe look.
