The most popular shacket on Amazon is ‘super soft’ and only $25 (that's 50% off)

What is it?

Clothing mashups are nothing new. You’ve got skorts, jeggings, coatigans — and now, just in time for fall, you’ve got the brilliant "shacket" — a cross between a shirt and a jacket. To prove the relevance of the phenomenon, look no further than Amazon’s No. 1 bestselling Automet Plaid Shacket, a casual cross between your coziest plaid flannel and your fave throw-it-on-and-go fall outerwear.

FYI: This Apricot print is one of the most popular options (so autumnal!), but feel free to choose one of 26 other colors.

Why is it a good deal?

The Automet Plaid Shacket has skyrocketed up to bestseller status with thousands of perfect ratings, and right now it’s on sale, to boot. Many of the colors and prints cost as little as $25 (50% off), the all-time lowest price we've ever seen for this piece!

Why do I need this?

The steam coming off of your pumpkin spice latte and the breeze blowing golden leaves off the trees are just a few of the things that make us looking forward to fall. Another is sweater weather, and the Automet Plaid Shacket quenches that thirst for a blanket-y layer to wrap yourself up in — except this is a jacket you can wear every day if you please.

What kind of plaid shacket person are you? Whether you’re into lumberjack, tartan or checkered plaid — or whether you like bold, pastel or neutral palettes — you’ll find a scheme that suits your tastes. Blue, for instance, has casual denim appeal, Pink gives feminine flair and Apricot is the neutral choice for anyone who doesn’t want to commit to a bold look.

What reviewers say:

It appears the Automet Plaid Shacket is something of a fall MVP — you’re not going to see it benched! One reviewer called it their “most complimented jacket,” and wrote: “ Colors go well with so many different outfits and people always ask where I bought it. One of my favorite fall staple pieces."

This fan wrote: “The craftsmanship of the jacket is impeccable, and it boasts soft, high-quality materials that make wearing it an absolute pleasure. Not to mention, the fit is spot-on as I anticipated, and the length is just perfect.” Another called it “super soft and comfy.”

“This Apricot plaid shirt is flattering, even to a 74-year-old gal!” gushed one fan.

Heads up: "The sleeves are a little on the long side," this shopper wrote, but went on to say, “I’m a little obsessed with this piece ... I can’t give it less than five stars given how much I’ve worn it!"

“This shacket is the perfect length to be able to wear with leggings; not too long, but long enough to cover the butt,” another confirmed.

Even though it's only fall, there's nothing classier than winter whites.

Another fall layering essential? A classic crewneck, and we love this one from Hanes:

This perfect layering piece is made from cotton and polyester that was created using recycled plastic bottles!

"A great sweatshirt," raved a reviewer. "Perfect weight for the spring and fall weather. Ordered a size up so I could wear with leggings, and it’s perfect so [I] ordered another color."
