I am a jacket girl through and through, I love that they elevate every outfit! As soon as temperatures drop below 50 degrees, I can be found rocking a plethora of jackets: jean jackets, shirt jackets (shackets?), leather jackets, and now..leather shackets!
When I wanna wear sweats and a tee? Add a sherpa jacket, and I’ve got a complete look.
Too cold to rock my favorite silky tank? All I need is a great jean jacket and I’m ready to rock and roll!
Jackets are one of the true magical moments of fall (well that and a PSL and the beautiful Aspen leaves here in CO).
TBH I am not sure the term “leather shacket” is really a thing, but the leather shacket that I recently picked up at Eloquii definitely gives me that vibe. Technically, Eloquii calls this piece a faux-leather button-down, but the longer length and the jacket-like feel are what give me leather shacket vibes. Brands like Levi’s, GANNI and Good American have all also recently dropped some seriously stellar leather shackets as well and are, hang on…checking…YES: They’re all calling them shackets, baby!
ps. if you are a straight-sized gal, then this leather shacket is for you!
The Leather Shirt Jacket: A Flawless Layer For Any Outfit
I am 100% in love with the leather shacket trend right now, and think it’s going to be here for a while. But let’s be real: whether you’re into the regular shackets or not, leather shirt jackets are both sexier and easier to wear. They pair perfectly with just about anything and have a more timeless feel than a flannel shacket.
One of the things I love about fall is that jackets make it easy to style some of my favorite summer pieces. IMO the easiest way to style a leather shacket is with a long flowy maxi dress. I found my flowy dress from Target and absolutely loved it for summer, but now that it’s cold, it 100% needs layers.
One of my fav ways to create that layered look is by belting it and throwing on my leather shacket. This outfit feels so on trend for the season and has me excited to go on dinner dates or (my personal fav) trips to Whole Foods!
