Every well-rounded closet has a few throw-on-and-go pieces (read: lazy-girl style staples) that you can turn to time and again when wardrobe conundrums start to rear their ugly heads. Classic white shirts, leather jackets and everyday essential denim count themselves as part of this closet MVP crew, but there’s one piece in particular we think deserves a bit more style cred: the tried-and-true shacket (shirt + jacket, duh). As versatile as your go-to denim jacket, but with a bit of tough-girl edge thrown in, the timeless topper boasts some serious sartorial power, bringing balance and cool contrast to ensembles centered around closet basics and statement pieces alike. This week, Style Resolutions is showing you three easy ways to re-spark that love affair with this military-inspired number, taking it from the office to off-duty with effortless ease.
