What Are Shackets?

Picture this: the cozy embrace of a shirt and the warmth of your favorite AE jacket. That’s the magic combo you get with shackets! They’re an easy, versatile layer that feels (and looks!) just as good on early fall mornings as cold winter days. 

They have all the qualities you know and love from AE shirts – a button-up front and easy collar – but are extra toasty thanks to thicker fabrics like our ridiculously soft fleece and sherpa.

What To Wear Under Shackets

The best part of wearing shackets is the adaptability. They effortlessly complement any outfit and go with EVERYTHING! But if you’re still wondering what to wear under your shacket, we’ve got you covered. 

On warmer days, try wearing them with lightweight T-shirts and polos, then swap out your light layers for heavier ones like oversized sweatshirts and sweaters when the cold hits. 

Shackets & Sherpa

Shackets and sherpa are a dream come true when it comes to easy, on-trend layering. Choose a plaid fleece shacket for ultra-dreamy vibes, then layer a sherpa vest over it and add a soft beanie for a laid-back look that’ll keep the chill away. 

Not about the vest life? Swap it out for teddy fleece accessories like gloves or hats, then finish the look with leg warmers and boots.

Shackets & Graphic Tees

Shackets and graphic tees were simply meant to be. On warmer days, leave your shacket unbuttoned so you can still peep your graphics underneath. Wear fun festive T-shirts to celebrate the holiday season in style, or go classic with band tees repping all your faves.

Wear your shacket with an extra layer if needed and of course a cute Snoopy hat to keep warm before you head outside. We’re loving this look for ice skating and getting hot chocolate at a winter festival!

Shackets & Skirts

We firmly believe you can still wear skirts through fall and winter with the right layers! Choose your go-to black mini skirt, add tights, then layer a band tee and shacket for an easy look you’ll love. Mix and match the look by wearing a shacket in your fave plaid print, or go for a one-color look by wearing a black shacket to match your black skirt.

This outfit screams cozy fall vibes, and we’re loving it for running errands and coffee shop dates.

Shackets & Jeans

Keep your shirt jacket vibes simple yet cool ‘n’ comfy by wearing them with your favorite pair of jeans or pants (we’re very into baggy wide-leg jeans and cargo pants right now), then adding a long-sleeve Soft & Sexy tee.
