The ‘shacket’ is the only cover-up you'll need this spring

We do love a hybrid!

Coming in second place - shortly after our favourite mash-up, the Cronut (that’s a croissant doughnut) - the shacket is making a comeback this season and we’ve found you the best ones to add your wardrobe.

So exactly what is a shacket?

Well simply put, the shacket is a cross-between a shirt and a jacket. It’s got the thickness and warmth of a jacket but in the style of a shirt complete with collar and buttons. The shacket is perfect for spring ‘should I take a jacket?’ weather and if it turns out that you didn’t need to, then it’s light enough to bundle up in your bag or you can tie it around your waist.

Showing how to work the trend, TV presenter Rochelle Humes carries off this white number effortlessly as she celebrated the success of her new baby skincare brand, My Little Coco.
