Greetings and happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. Today I’m styling a winter shacket outfit that’s perfect for a day of sightseeing or casual outdoor outings.
This shirt jacket came from Evereve, and I love how thick and cozy it is. It’s also really soft and not stiff at all. I just want to wrap up in it and sit by the campfire with a mug of hot apple cider.
The windowpane print is a fresh take on the more typical plaid shirt jackets, and it’s a little less “lumberjack” for those who aren’t a fan of that look.
I also appreciate the contrasting buttons and the way the sleeves are full enough to layer comfortably under it, but not so big as to add visual weight. I could probably size down, but I actually like the slightly oversized look.
This shirt jacket was fully stocked when I shot this look, but now sizes are getting depleted. I know, it’s the same old song we’re hearing over and over this fall. Suffice it to say, if it’s something you want and they have your size, don’t wait around to grab it. I also found a few sizes left in this solid grey option, and I also like this plaid option on the Z Supply website.
The one busted out knee adds some texture without being too extreme, and there is also some subtle distressing on the rear pockets. They’re a crop length, so they work really well with ankle boots. I’m wearing my usual size 6.
These Sorel Lennox Chelsea Boots are a really good marriage of practical and trendy. They’re completely waterproof and the cushioned insole makes them very comfortable to walk in, but the Chelsea boot styling keeps them modern.
I also love the texture the debossed leather upper adds to an outfit, and the white molded bottoms create a fun contrast. They run true to size, or size up if in between. I went with an 8.5, and there’s plenty of room for thick socks.
Speaking of socks, I am wearing some. I know, will wonders ever cease!?! I picked up these Smartwool Cable Crew Socks from Backcountry, and they’re great for wearing with boots in the fall/winter.
I wore them with my Blondo Dagger boots all day Saturday walking around outside in Massachusetts, and my feet were very comfortable and warm, even though it was a chilly fall day.
And I almost forgot about the shirt I’m wearing underneath the jacket! This is the Chaser Waffle Henley, and it makes a really cute base layer because it adds texture to the look, and the henley styling is more interesting than a simple t-shirt.
It also comes in solid black, and I really like the black/ivory stripe version as well — but not with this windowpane print, of course. I’m wearing a small in both the henley top and the shirt jacket.
I kept my jewelry minimal with these silver tone split hoop earrings and my diamond pendant, and I carried a lightweight tote because this is the kind of outfit I would wear if I was out and about for a long day of sight seeing or shopping. (This one is similar.) I usually like to carry more than I can fit in a smaller crossbody, but that’s totally a matter of preference.
How do you feel about the shacket trend? Have you tried it yet?
