What to wear right now – just don’t call it a shacket!

What to wear right now – just don’t call it a shacket!

There is a beauty in utility and something comforting about layering up in sturdy workwear pieces and stompy shoes. In this gentlewomanly, utiltarian jacket I feel ready for action. Whether that’s navigating the local supermarket or dodging pedestrians with no spatial awareness, on the London streets. The Kin donkey jacket (and I am delighted that John Lewis has called it by that name), is my cover-up du jour. Having lots of pockets makes it a superb modern-day aid to personal organisation; plenty of room for the face mask and hand sanitiser. And it’s great for slipping on over my old coated, black jeans, lockdown jumpsuit or joggers.
