The Shacket (AKA Our New Favorite Trend)

Whatever you call it, shacket…shirt jacket…overshirt, we are here to tell you about one of the best growing trends of the season! Perfect for transitioning through fall and winter, this hot item is a must have in your closets. So, what exactly is a shacket, you might ask? A shacket is the perfect blend of a shirt and jacket. It incorporates a shirt style and midweight to heavyweight design of a jacket. This article of clothing could include a flannel/plaid print, denim, or corduroy constructions which we are seeing as the most popular. They might also feature a Sherpa or wool body that provide the warmth of a parka minus the bulkiness. What we love about shackets are the versatility and ease they bring to your every day wardrobe. Keeping you warm and stylish, you can dress them up or down with so many looks. And, women and men, alike, can get in on this trend, making it your go-to for 2020-2021 fashion!

Trend Alert: The Brami

One of our favorite current trends is the shift we've seen towards comfortable crop tops. Not only that, but today's crop tops are built for all different body types! With body positivity at the forefront of the fashion conversation, it's no longer in-style to make sure that you have abs before you reach for shorter shirts. Along with this trend, we've noticed that waistlines keep climbing with mom jeans and high wasted pants coming back in. If you're loving these trends, stick around to see why the brami has become everyone's go-to cropped top.
