One of spring’s biggest trends is the “shacket,” which is a shirt/jacket hybrid. They’re perfect for layering during transitional weather, so we scoured the web to find the cutest styles on the market right now.
Shackets are all over social media at the moment. You’ve likely seen them on Instagram and “what I’m wearing” posts on TikTok. These light jackets look more like oversized, button-down shirts. They’re cozy but not too heavy, and look great over a tank or crop top.
There are lots of options out there, and we’re pretty sure this is one trend that’s going to stick around through fall. So grab one now, and you can pair it with denim shorts or a dress for spring and summer, then with jeans or leggings this fall.

Some of the most popular shackets out there are plaid, which makes sense: They’re casual but still cute, and they’re really versatile. This F.DTCC Oversize Flannel Shacket has a loose fit and vintage-inspired buttons, and it’s super comfortable.
You can wear this over dresses or pair it with jeans for a more casual look. And if you love the oversized vibe, you can also button this up and wear it as a shirt instead of an open jacket.
Plaid has obviously been a huge part of the shacket trend, but if you want to opt for something a bit different, try this Miholl Corduroy Shacket. The corduroy definitely gives this one a slightly more vintage vibe (especially in the beige color), but it’s still a great casual jacket.
This one also looks great when it’s left open as a layering piece over a tank with jeans, or when it’s buttoned up with a v-neck and worn as more of a shirt. It comes in a few different color options as well.
Most of the shackets out there are medium length and hit just below the waist, so this Omoone Lounge Shacket stands out because of its longer length.
This one definitely looks more like a jacket than a shirt, but it’s still great for those chilly days when you need something that feels a bit cozier. It comes in a few different brightly colored plaid colorways, and is a great piece to use now and then hold onto until the fall.
Made of lightweight twill, this Abercrombie & Fitch Twill Shirt Jacket is an excellent spring piece. The light olive green color will match with basically anything (think of it as a neutral), and the material makes it more like a casual layering shirt than a jacket.
The large front pockets are super functional, and the longer length and snap-up front make this a perfect shirt to wear with leggings—it’s just oversized enough.
This Madewell Military Shirt Jacket is such a great piece for anyone who likes to wear menswear-inspired clothing (or just men’s clothing in general). It was actually designed by the Madewell men’s team, but sized for female body types. It was inspired by the classic army-navy surplus jacket.
This one is definitely a bit more sporty and casual, with a utility feel to it and an already slightly faded, worn-in look. Lightweight and oversized, this works as a spring jacket or a layering piece.
This BP. Shirt Jacket is super soft and comfortable with a lightweight feel that will make you never want to take it off. Casual and versatile, with a slightly oversized fit, this one is all about effortless great style.
It’s also thinner and more lightweight than some of the other options. According to reviewers, it’s also great for petite frames, as it’s not quite as oversized as many other shackets.
For something cozier, try a BP. Teddy Shirt Jacket. Made of a soft, plush teddy fabric, this one is a great for chilly days.
It works well paired with leggings or sweats for a cute and casual loungewear look. This pink, black, and white tie-dye will definitely stand out, while the snap-front buttons are subtle, but cute.
Want to wear your shacket to work? This Banana Republic Sweater Shirt Jacket is the ideal office space layering piece. Made of 100% merino wool, it’s incredibly soft, comfortable, and cozy (basically, perfect for chilly office temperatures), and feels more like a sweater than a jacket.
Even so, it definitely has a more tailored look to it than your standard cardigan, thanks to the pockets and oversized buttons. It’s lightweight and looks just as good left open as it does buttoned up. It can easily be dressed up or down, and will become a staple in your wardrobe.
For a super-versatile option, go for this H&M Oversized Shirt Jacket in denim blue. It’s basically like a more lightweight, oversized denim jacket, except it’s made partly from cotton, so it’s a lot softer and less stiff.
This one looks just as great over a dress as it does with leggings. If you’re not into the denim look, it also comes in dark gray, black, or a pale lavender that’s really pretty.
