If you’ve got a shacket and don’t exactly know what you’re supposed to do with it, I’ve got all the tips for you.
I’ve found that I wear mine far more often than I anticipated when I bought it. It’s going to become a staple for your outings if you need to layer and wear thicker pieces on occasion. We wear shackets because they’re a great layering piece, and that’s hard to come by.
How Can I Make Shackets Dressy
In short, they aren’t particularly the most dressy pieces in our closets, but they absolutely can be. It all depends on how you style it!
There are shacket style dresses out there that can be dressed up with a heeled boot that curates a simply stunning outfit pairing.
One of my favorite ways that I’ve worn my favorite shacket took some playing around with and styling but I got it eventually.
- I threw on my oversized white shacket over a slip dress
- buttoned it up halfway
- and shifted it up a little bit so that it was slouchy down the back and the front was a little more open
- I stacked up about 10 necklaces of different lengths
- added some cool and chunky earrings to the look to accessorize
- and finished with a dark eye with a dark mauve lip color.
It was meant to be casual cool but it turned into one of my favorite outfits I’ve ever worn!
Sometime all it takes is some playing to make the coolest outfit.
If you’re like me and enjoy the cozier things of life, this is the piece for you. A shacket and ugg combination will always be elite, but sometimes we have to elevate it a little more than that. Unfortunately.
