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!
