The most versatile jacket you’ll ever own!

While perusing all my favorite websites and reading up on what’s new for fall, I found one key item that has risen to the top of the must-have list: the most versatile jacket for fall – a shirt-style jacket, also known as a “shacket.” Thicker than a shirt but thinner than a coat, this versatile piece is the perfect way to transition your fall wardrobe. There are many stylish options of this cool-girl jacket — the utility-style I’m wearing above, this pretty lilac shade, and all kinds of tweeds and plaids. And, given our new, more casual lifestyle filled with zoom calls, home-schooling (if you have school-age kids) and grocery runs, we all need something easy to throw on over our t-shirts and later, turtlenecks and sweaters!

This week my Nordstrom 6 friends and I decided to share how we style shirt jackets (today at 3, PST). In case you’re new around here and wondering who in the world the Nordstrom 6 is, let me explain. We are 6 friends, co-workers, and creative Personal Stylists scattered across the US and all working from home. And we’re on Insta every Saturday providing some fun and lighthearted content for you all to enjoy!

Keep reading for a little style board inspo, and for 10 outfit ideas on how to style this must-have piece in your fall wardrobes!

This neutral shade of military green goes with many colors, as you can see below in the ten outfit combos. I especially love it with charcoal gray, a touch of white and the always-sophisticated shade of caramel brown. Add a fun piece of jewelry like these earrings to keep the look feminine!

 

10 Outfit ideas for this must-have jacket

 

Outfit combo #1

A graphic tee works with everything, no matter the season

 

Outfit combo #2

All white helps the transition if you’re still in a warmer climate

 

Outfit combo #3

Faded denim always works — add a white tee or blouse for layering

 

Outfit combo #4

I love a touch of red either by adding a tee, your favorite shoe or both

 

Outfit combo #5

All-black going-out combo … if you venture out 😉

 

Outfit combo #6

Adding a snake print shoe always works, and you’ll be surprised at how versatile it is with many other pieces as well

 

Outfit combo #7

Soft pink or a pale blush is unexpected, and makes it a bit more feminine

 

Outfit combo #8

Stripes are always a good option, and provide just the right amount of pattern for many outfits

 

Outfit combo #9

A denim shirt is another year round staple that looks great under a military green jacket

 

Outfit combo #10

Booties, booties, booties … any color works!

  1. Hi Susie – Love the style boards!! I’m not sure, but the camel bucket bag in the first style inspo board )#6) doesn’t look like the bag it’s linked to. xox

  2. Hi Susie,
    Please can i ask you advice! I bought the Stina Fjallraven jacket in the green exactly the same one Kate Middleton wore for an amazing price and i LOVE IT. I wondered can I get the same effect as your green jacket on your board? I want to use it as much as possible for a classy round town look as well as active wear.How would you style it? Thank you for listening, Francesca:)
