Have you considered tucking a jacket over your shoulders like a movie star would on the red carpet? If you are concerned about looking a little too unnatural or even weird, I would recommend doing this for cocktail parties, semi-formal events, and on vacation first. This is the best time to try new outfit styles. The more you do it, the more you can do naturally and casually. To help you, I’ve put together a list of nice ways to put a jacket over your shoulders. Now let’s look at these outfit ideas.
Wear a black sheath dress and a black leather jacket over your shoulders
There are three types of jackets that you can hang over your shoulders that look all natural. The black leather jacket is one of them. The other two are the denim jacket and wool coat, which I’ll talk about later. For this outfit, simply wear a black sheath dress and a black leather jacket over the shoulders. Completing the outfit with a high-top black and white Converse underlines the stylish character of this outfit.
Black wool coat with white sweatshirt and gray mini skirt
As mentioned in the previous idea, the wool coat is another type of jacket that looks nice and natural when you put it over your shoulders. For example, wear a white sweatshirt and a gray mini skirt. Wear a black wool coat over your shoulder. Wear a pair of black leather boots to make the outfit current.
White maxi blazer over a black shirt and suit trousers
This outfit is a more noticeable outfit that you may want to reserve for formal events. To achieve this stylish and chic look, you can wear a black button down shirt and black dress pants with black heels. Drape a white maxi blazer over these black pieces for a stunning black and white look.
Black leather jacket over white silk top and pleaded skirt
A black leather jacket is so versatile. In fact, I think that’s an understatement, as you can really combine a black leather jacket with almost anything and expect it to look at least decent. However, this outfit is much more than just decent. The combination of the black leather jacket with a white silk top, a light pink pleading skirt and sandals creates a feminine look with a touch of coolness.
Camel wool coat over white top and black leather skirt
This is an elegant and casual outfit that is easy to take off. Just wear a white top and a black knee length leather skirt. Wear ballerinas or ballerinas for the shoes and pull a camel wool coat over your shoulders.
Drape the denim jacket over your shoulders
When it comes to the type of jackets that look most natural when draped over the shoulders, my voice goes to the denim jacket. And you pretty much can’t go wrong wearing a white top with it. For example, you can wear a white printed t-shirt, ripped jeans and low-cut sneakers, then pull a denim jacket over your shoulders for a stylish street look.
Gray wool coat over black sweater & skater skirt
The color combination of black and gray very often creates an elegant and comfortable looking outfit. As an example of this, you can wear a black high neck sweater and a black skater skirt for this outfit. Combine them with stockings and black ankle boots. Light up the black parts by placing a light gray wool coat over your shoulders.
Black blazer over white crop top & wide leg pants
This outfit is an elegant outfit that is especially suitable for managers to wear for corporate events like an annual dinner. To achieve this look, wear a white crop top with white wide leg dress pants and black heels. Drape a black blazer over your shoulders for an extra touch of power and charisma.
Denim jacket over the shoulders with a white crop top & pencil skirt
As mentioned before, it looks natural and beautiful to put a denim jacket over your shoulders. That seems like a natural way to wear a denim jacket when the weather is just a little chilly, like autumn and spring. This outfit is an example of a casual and feminine outfit that is perfect for meeting friends. It consists of a long-cut white, cropped T-shirt and a black, knee-length pencil skirt. The strappy sandals add a boho style to the entire look. Drape the denim jacket over your shoulders for extra breeze.

Black leather jacket over a yellow dress with long sleeves
Wearing black over yellow simply requires people’s attention. Of course, you want to look good, otherwise there is no need for attention. This outfit is a great way to style black and yellow. It consists of a bright yellow long-sleeved dress and a black leather jacket over the shoulders. For the shoes, you can either wear heels in the exact same color as the dress or just white heels.
Leather jacket over a black and white striped T-shirt
For a stylish and casual street look, you can wear the black leather jacket with a black and white striped t-shirt, short jeans and white low-cut sneakers.
Jeans blazer with matching high waisted flare jeans
This is a very wise and professional looking outfit that I imagine a professor or teacher could wear and look great on. Just wear an unwashed denim blazer with matching high-waisted, wide-leg jeans.
Flowery chiffon mini dress with black leather jacket
An interesting way to style a black leather jacket is to wear it with something feminine. For example, you can wear it with a floral chiffon mini dress to create this contrasting yet beautiful look.

Pair a black leather jacket with a white lace top and black chinos by taking the theme of the previous idea.
