Swackets. Just saying the word is fun. What is a swacket? It’s basically a jacket made out of sweater knit material and some form of shearling. The first time I spotted one of these mixed media toppers, I was shopping for a client and it totally caught my eye. I am always on the hunt for special statement pieces that my clients wouldn’t normally buy…so of course, I pulled it. When we had our try-on party, she fell in love with the swacket (and so did I.) It was versatile, comfortable and SO unbelievably cozy.
We played with adding the swacket to different looks. After styling and creating MULTIPLE looks with items already in her closet, it was a no brainer. She needed to add this stylish piece to her winter wardrobe. Weeks after her appointment, I was still thinking about it (the swacket that is.) Since that doesn’t happen very often, I decided to listen to my gut and went out to find my very own sweater jacket. I was so excited when I found this one at SCOOBIE.
It was just the thing to pep up a basic black and white striped dress for a workday. I paired it with black opaque tights, black booties and this fun ladylike hat. I love blazers and leather jackets for over my dresses, but I wanted another option. I am all about variety and this was just the ticket. The boho vibe of the jacket paired well with the flowy tunic style of my dress. Plus, since it is constructed of sweater knit and faux shearling, I now have style and comfort in one piece!
For a more casual vibe, I paired my beloved swacket with a buffalo plaid flannel and washed skinnies for a day of shopping with the hubs. The stark winter white color of the swacket was a fabulous contrast to the vibrant red plaid. It was one of those random December days when the temperature was around 50 degrees, so a coat wasn’t needed. But, since I am ALWAYS cold, this functioned as a statement piece and an outerwear piece.
Two very different looks, two very different functions and one VERY special Swacket.
