Jackets and shorts are a trendy yet comfortable combination, you can wear them to almost any occasion. There are a lot of different ways you can wear jackets and shorts to create stylish outfits to suit your every mood. Today, I’m sharing how to wear a jacket with shorts from dressy to casual outfits.

I personally like to see the bottom of the shorts when pairing with a jacket.
Jacket and Short Ideas
Black Leather Jacket + Black Shorts Outfit
For a chic, street style look, pair a black leather jacket with a black v neck t shirt or a black crop top, and black floral shorts. Add a black handbag and black heels with gold accents to complete the look. Exchange your leather jacket with a black denim jacket for a unique change of texture. Wear this outfit anywhere from brunch with friends to exploring the city.
Brown Blazer + Short Set
A brown blazer and brown short set is a staple personal outfit in every fall wardrobe. It can be styled in many ways, and the shorts make it perfect for transitioning from summer to fall weather. Pair your brown blazer and short set with a white v neck t shirt, a pair of white sneakers, and a light brown handbag. Add gold jewelry and a brown pair of sunglasses to complete the look. Wear this everyday elevated look out to dinner with family, meeting with friends, or even to work.
Tan Jacket + Denim Shorts
Style your pre-fall personal outfit wardrobe with a classy tan jacket and floral shorts. This look is perfect for transitioning from summer to fall. The jacket adds extra warmth, while the floral shorts reminisce of summer. Style your tan jacket over a white v neck t shirt with a brown handbag and brown sunglasses. Pair these high-waisted shorts with a crop top for a more causal look. Wear this outfit out to brunch with friends catching the last bit of warmth from summer.
White Blazer + Crop Top + Linen Shorts
A white blazer paired with white linen shorts and a fall inspired crop top is an essential summer to fall transitional look. Styling this look with fall crop top, like this knit burnt orange piece, brings a pop of warm fall color into your personal outfit. Style with a pair of white sandals and tortoise shell sunglasses to complete the look.
Dressy Blazer + Short Set
For an elevated jacket and shorts look, style a dressy chocolate brown blazer with a pair of matching chocolate brown shorts. Add a white, v neck t shirt underneath. Complete the look with a nude shoulder bag and a pair of classy nude heels. This look is perfect to wear anywhere from the office, to a meeting, or even out to dinner with friends.
Plaid Blazer + Shorts Outfit
For a perfect pre-fall look, pair a white and brown plaid blazer with white linen shorts and white sneakers. Add a nude handbag and tortoise shell patterned sunglasses to complete the look. This look is elevated but simple. It can be worn anywhere from a parent-teacher conference to brunch with the girls.
Shop The Outfit
Blazer + Crew Neck T shirt + Biker Shorts Outfit
A monochrome white look is an essential pre-fall outfit. Style a white blazer over a crew neck t shirt, with white biker shorts, and a comfortable, but cute white sneaker. Add a white baseball cap and silver jewelry to complete the look. This look is elevated, but is still casual and comfortable to wear for everyday life. Replace the white blazer with a white denim jacket for a different texture. Wear it out to run errands, pick up the kids from school, or to a soccer game.
