How to Choose a Shacket for Women in the UK - Buying Guide

Choosing the right shacket is all about finding one that's the both cosy and lightweight, making it an easy and adaptable piece. In this section we'll take a look at the different materials, cuts and lengths you'll come across to guide you in your choice.

Choose the Material Depending on the Look You Want to Achieve

The material you choose for your shacket will determine the "look" you create, and how it fits your body. There are other concerns such as how natural the material is, and how soft and comfortable it feels. Here we will look at material options in a bit more detail.

Up the Style Stakes With a High-Fashion Leather Shacket

Up the Style Stakes With a High-Fashion Leather Shacket

Leather has a way of polishing up every outfit to make it seem that little bit more intentional (in a good way). Whether it is worn open like a jacket or as a super-stylish button-up, not only will a leather shacket turn heads but it'll keep you really warm, too.


You'll be surprised by just how much of your wardrobe a leather shacket will go with, so, though a higher priced material, it may well be worth it. Wipe-clean and extremely durable, a good leather item may even last you forever!

A Vegan Alternative to Shearling, Borg Is All the Rage

A Vegan Alternative to Shearling, Borg Is All the Rage

Sheepskin or shearling is a gorgeous idea at this time of year, but it seems to have been taken over by its more ethical and accessible cousin, borg. Borg isn't just an alien species in Star Trek – it also happens to be one of the best autumn to winter fabrics to cover yourself in.


A very thick and soft material with a faux sheepskin look, borg is super warm due to its heat retaining properties. Made from 100% polyester, it's another tough-wearing and highly-durable choice, which makes it a perfect casual go-to in the colder months.

Keep It Casual Yet Cute With Denim

Keep It Casual Yet Cute With Denim

If there's one material you can't go wrong with, it has to be denim. With the ability to be dressed up or dressed down depending on the cut and how you wear it, denim is a true autumn staple.


Made from cotton, denim is a natural material that is hypoallergenic and great for your skin. Its material means it can be structured and stiff, or totally relaxed. Whether worn as a jacket when it's milder or layered as a shirt in winter, there's a lot you can do with denim.

Cozy and Comfortable Yet Classy, Corduroy Is an Autumn Staple

Cozy and Comfortable Yet Classy, Corduroy Is an Autumn Staple

Corduroy is one of those magical materials that can look preppy, casual or formal depending on how you wear it, and that makes for a great purchase. Embrace the cosiness by opting for one of the muted or neutral hues like sage or oatmeal for a classic autumnal look.


The term corduroy doesn't actually refer to the material but to the certain recognisable structure of the fabric. Corduroy can actually be made from natural or synthetic fibres and is most often made from a mix of polyester, nylon or cotton.

Consider Cut and Length to Determine Your Perfect Fit

Consider Cut and Length to Determine Your Perfect Fit

Cut and length can determine whether your shacket will look spruced up or more casual, so it's worth considering before buying. For a comfy everyday look, you might choose an oversized pocketed shacket with a relaxed or loose fit, skimming the hip area. 


If you want something a little more formal or jacket-like, go for a regular fit which creates a more tailored feel. A longline shacket, particularly with a tie belt around the waist, is not only sophisticated-looking but will keep you warm, too!

Whether Check, Khaki, or Block Colours, Have Fun With Different Hues and Prints

Whether Check, Khaki, or Block Colours, Have Fun With Different Hues and Prints

Khaki or checked shackets are some of the most popular choices, but there's a vast array of options to create your own unique style. We're big fans of the muted hues in vogue at the moment, particularly browns, greys and greens, but black is a sure-fire winner for most occasions. 


Houndstooth or an extra-large check gives less of a lumberjack vibe and more of a city-chic aesthetic, so why not consider these if you're looking to dress to impress!

Not All Shackets Are Machine Washable, so Check for Easy-Care Options

Not All Shackets Are Machine Washable, so Check for Easy-Care Options

You'd be forgiven for assuming that all shackets are machine washable like their shirt counterparts, but we're afraid that's not always the case. Many of the options made from polyester need to be dry-cleaned, which is important to know before buying.


Dry cleaning can be an extra faff for sure, however, most shackets you'll come across don't actually need to be cleaned too often. Obviously, it depends how often you wear it and what you do whilst wearing it, but many materials can go a good, long old time before they need to be dry-cleaned.
