I have to start this blog post with a confession. I really have no idea what to name this little short cardigan or shrug my shoulders the first time I see it. The only thing that comes to mind is “what a cute jacket this is”. Now I know that the official name is the bolero jacket. It’s something that you can easily build a beautiful and unique outfit around. To make the styling process easier for you, I’ve rounded up some of the best bolero jacket outfit ideas for you. Let’s dive in.

Let’s start this outfit with a very casual yet stylish outfit. To achieve this look, you can wear a white bodycon tank top with a gray bolero jacket.
