Stylish Leather Jackets From The ‘70s
Starting in the ‘70s, one of the most common styles around was the ‘Mod’ leather jacket. This unique style features a slightly oversized blazer design completed with a button-up front. This trendy jacket also includes a distinctive stand-up collar, long oversized sleeves, and a durable, shiny leather appearance. To this day this type of jacket can be worn for many occasions; we recommend pairing it with a pair of Dr. Martens, your favourite jeans, and a white t-shirt for a stylish, ‘70s look. Check out our range of Men’s Leather Blazers to complete your outfit today.
Biker Jacket For The ‘80s Rebel
Although popular in almost every decade, the leather biker jacket was a firm favourite throughout the ‘80s. Typically featuring a cropped design, a fitted structure, a stand-up collar, heavy-duty zips and many pockets, this unique and trendy jacket will transform any outfit! We recommend pairing this awesome jacket with some retro pumps, mom or dad jeans, and a graphic sweater for that classic ‘80s style. For the ladies, one of our favourite biker jackets available at Hidepark is the Britney!
Awesome Bomber Jackets From The ‘90s
The quirky bomber jacket took the ‘90s by storm! A staple piece in every wardrobe, this oversized jacket quickly became an essential piece of clothing throughout this decade. Famously featuring a slightly elasticated waistband and cuffs and a stand-up collar, this oversized jacket looks great with each and every outfit! We recommend pairing it with military-style boots, black jeans or chinos, and your favourite t-shirt. Check out this Men’s Brown Leather Blouson Jacket for some great inspiration.
Colourful Leather From The Noughties
Since the noughties started, colourful leather jackets have become a staple piece in many wardrobes. This decade was full of colourful, bold, and bright outfits, many of which included gorgeous shades of leather. People have started to dress in their own specific way to ensure they feel comfortable and confident, meaning there’s lots of customisation when it comes to colour, style, fit, and more! Our personal favourite at Hidepark is the gorgeous Penny in a beautiful shade of red. Pair with Chelsea boots, tights, a skirt, and a cropped sweater for the ultimate seasonal outfit.

Since the noughties, we’ve seen a whole range of wonderful leather jackets come back around in fashion time and time again. One of the trendiest leather jackets on the market is the trusty leather flying jacket. Remaining a staple piece for decades, this beautiful jacket typically features a leather or sheepskin exterior with a wool lining, heavy-duty zips, a distinctive collar, and wool-lined cuffs. Pair with Chelsea boots, skinny jeans, and your favourite jumper for a stylish outfit! Our favourite option for the gents is the Men’s Antique Shearling Sheepskin Leather Pilot Jacket.
