Customise Your Topshop Shacket

This time of year can be a challenge sartorially. Too hot to schlep around in your big winter coat, but not yet warm enough to go without; it requires an in-between style that will just keep the chill off. Cue The Shacket: a shirt/jacket mix-up that we love simply for its transitional know how.

Frequently heavier than your cotton equivalent and made to be worn open over a top or knit, like a jacket, it will see you through from now until summer with ease. Joanne Hegarty, the fashionable lady behind The Stylist And The Wardrobe, has shown us how it’s done with this khaki Topshop number, which she has customised for some added edge.

Recreate the look yourself by purchasing aforementioned ‘shacket’ and replacing its standard buttons with gold military style ones (you’ll find them in the John Lewis haberdashery) to elevate the high street hero into a high-fashion keepsake, then pair with luxe tracksuit bottoms and peep-toe boots for a failsafe day-to-day look.
