I finally bought a Shacket, and better yet, she’s a sweater! One of the most versatile pieces I’ve bought all season, I’ve found this multi-functioning knit piece can be worn as a jacket, sweater, tunic or layering piece – how fab is that? And since today’s post is all about knits, I thought I’d show you a few ways I’ve styled this neutral-colored plaid wonder this past week.
This Shacket drapes like a sweater, making for a wonderful layering piece. This cozy looks consists of 4 layers on top; (1) knit layering tank, (2) long sleeve fitted tee, (3) knit Shacket (sleeves rolled up to bring up the black color from my leggings), (4) olive green long puffer vest. Leggings finish the look on the bottom – combat boots balance the heavy top layers, on the bottom half.
As much as I love black wardrobe staples, I think winter white looks fresh right now. For look #2, I belted the Shacket, added knit joggers and lug sole boots for an easy, everyday, winter white casual look.
Using the same elements as Look #2, I removed my belt, added a cross-body bag and beanie hat in winter white, for a totally different – more relaxed look.
Which look is your favorite?

Trend alert! Cable knits are having a moment, so I splurged on this neutral colored cable knit dress from Stitch Fix, and styled it with my tall suede boots. It’s a cozy look, and perfect for winter! Pop on over to the blog to see a few more knit pieces and for my style tips for knitwear for pear shapes.
Nancy – Nancy’s Fashion Style
Knit dresses! Can’t do without in winter, they are just so cozy and warm. This one is a bit older but I love to wear it, especially with sneakers. Can it get any more comfortable?
Julie – Fashion Trends and Friends and Instagram FashionTandF –
I’m loving all the knitwear sets that are totally on-trend for the winter! Think elevated sweatsuit – sweater material joggers and a cute matching sweater top! The sets are so comfy, cozy and easily split up to be styled with other pieces! Don’t you love having lots of styling options?! This is the perfect trend for winters in Illinois!
Amy – Amy’s Creative Pursuits
Living in a cold climate, I survive the winters in cozy knits like this thick cowl neck sweater and warm leggings.
Lucy – Lucy Bertoldi.com

Shelbee – Shelbee on the Edge
This leopard coatigan is one of my favorite knit pieces that I own. I wear it literally all fall and winter long with all sorts of different outfits. Stop by my blog to see what I have styled underneath…hint…it’s more knits!
Joy – Joyous Styling
Cozy knit are so yummy in the colder temperatures, this sweater knit skirt is on sLe under 23.00 dollars, I love it so much I have it in Ivory.
Michele – On Instagram as Seechele_styles
Kicking knits up a notch in my knit sustainable cream boots with a thrifted cream knit ribbed turtleneck.
Nicole – High Latitude Style
I have loved knit jumpers all my life. My late mom knitted many of them when I was a kid. I remember a bottle green one with white shoulder section and orange embellishments, a citrus A-line, and a matching skirt and cardigan ensemble in red with green and black stripes. She used acrylic yarn and created super soft, cozy pieces. Her girlfriend, however, knitted wool sweaters. They were so itchy.
Emma – The Style Splash
I probably spend half the year in knitwear of some kind so I have acquired quite a collection over the years. This bright orange sweater with frill detailing is hard to beat though – I love the colour, plus it’s super soft and cosy. It’s great to pair with another bright hue or team with neutrals.

Love the versatile styling options for your shacket!
Hi Gail! Thank you so much for stopping by and happy new year! I must admit, I am a bit obsessed with this shacked – it has definitely already exceeded my price-per-wear expectation! xx Suzanne
Amy Johnson says
I’ve never seen a shacket/sweater before. I imagine it would be very soft and cozy. So many cute ways you styled it too!
HI Amy! This was a first for me as well. But since I LOVE knits, this was the perfect solution to my Shacket search! And yes, it is sooo soft, not itchy and warm…Happy New Year! xx Suzanne
Shelbee on the Edge says
Oh wow, Suzanne, what a fabulous shacket! It looks like a completely different piece each way your have styled it! It’s difficult to choose a favorite outfit, they are all so great, but I am always partial to black bases so I think the first outfit is my favorite. But I also really love the brighter outfits with winter neutrals and it looks super cute belted! What a fun find!
Hi Shelbee! I’m with you, I tend to always begin with a black or denim base – so this was a bit outside of may comfort zone. That said, I did like how “fresh” the white looked with it – though I think the black is my favorite as well! Happy New Year! xx Suzanne
I like your look! Especially the belted look! It’s really cozy!
Thank you Nancy! I don’t usually belt my garments as I am. short waisted. But I am always inspired by looks like yours – where the belt really defines the figure, so I gave it a try. Glad to hear you liked it! xx Suzanne
Julie Augustyn says
Such a cute shacket Suzanne! I love all the ways you’ve styled it! Another fun monthly collaboraiton!
Hi Julie! Thank you for stopping by! Now that I have found my perfect Shacket – she and I are having a lot of fun together. She works with so much in my closet, and it’s a nice alternative to my puffer or wool coats! xx Suzanne
Cozy knits are my jam and a shacket that’s also a sweater … sign me up! You look fabulous in all three stylings.
Thank you Rena. The fact that the shacket is a sweater was such a win for me. I don’t like clothing that is constraining, which is why I live in knits. This piece goes with so much in my closet, I’ve been having lots of fun styling her with so many different looks. Don’t you love it when a piece extends your wardrobe? Happy New Year! xx Suzanne
Andrea Schwartz says
Seriously so obsessed with your knit shacket Suzanne! Something like that might actually make me want to hop on the bandwagon. I’ve been rather slow to adopt this trend. Thanks for collaborating! I sure enjoyed it!
