Styling Celebrity Leather Jackets

Posted: 1st December 2016 in , , ,

We have compiled your favourite celebrity’s leather jackets and where to find an identical piece. This transitional weather can go from fairly mild to frosty overnight. This is what we call leather weather. Now is the perfect time to get out your leather jacket or find the perfect one to invest in.

Where else to look for inspiration than iconic celebrities in leather jackets? We have scouted your favourite celebrities styling a variety of range of different leather jackets and styling recommendations with leather jackets from Hidepark.

Tom Hardy’s Shearling Jacket

Tom Hardy
Tom Hardy has become one of the most recognised and prolific actors of our time, working on everything from Academy Award nominated movies to reading bedtime stories on CBeebies.

His looks and charm have turned him into a style icon, and we really can’t argue with that. Remember the Esquire photoshoot with his effortlessly cool shearling jacket?

If you want to achieve the same style at a fraction of the price, go for our B4 Sheepskin Flying Jacket. Crafted from 100% soft and supple sheepskin, this classic design features a sumptuous dark brown outer with camel thick wool pile lining.

You can wear it open, like the nonchalant Hardy, but it looks just as good fastened up when the weather is colder. Wear Tom Hardy’s shearling jacket with your favourite t-shirt and jeans to elevate your day-to-day outfits and be snug whilst doing so.

Idris Elba’s Fitted Jacket

Idris Elba
Idris Elba is another actor that just oozes style and charisma. We think nobody looks as good in a suit as Idris does, and the same can be said when he’s rocking a leather jacket.

And there’s plenty of reasons you might want to look like Idris. His titles include GQ Magazine’s 50 Best Dressed British Men, People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People in the World and Essence Magazine’s Sexiest Man of the Year. These are not to be sniffed at, and just cement how much of a style icon he’s become.

Here, he’s seen wearing his very own IdrisTM Biker Jacket made in collaboration with Superdry, which was limited edition and now sold out.

To recreate his look with a classic investment piece that will last you through the years, opt for our Budd Mens’ Leather Jacket. Our Budd Mens’ jacket features the same ribbed shoulder and panelling but raises the bar past what you expect on the high street. It is handcrafted from luxury sheep nappa and hand waxed to create a two-tone finish that brings out the natural graining and shade variations in the leather.

Though this jacket is part of our Men’s collection, it makes a fantastic unisex piece too. Throw our Budd jacket over your go-to jeans and t-shirt or floaty dress to toughen it up. It’s also the perfect jacket for night’s out too, as any spilled drinks can be wiped away without stains.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s Flying Jacket

Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker, also known as Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, has established herself as a fashion icon. Similarly to Carrie on the show, Sarah has always had her finger on the pulse when it comes to what looks good and has been the face of many brands because of this.

When not on the red carpet, Sarah is regularly caught wearing one of her many leather jackets, cementing it as a necessity within any person’s wardrobe.

If you want to recreate her look here, you can’t go wrong with the Laura Leather Flying Jacket. With its removable fur collar, you can instantly transform it from a chic leather jacket to stroll around the city in or cosied up on a countryside walk.

The Laura is hand waxed to give it a more “lived in” two-tone look. This leather jacket looks great thrown over your work or casual wear and can create an elegant silhouette with the sturdy buckle to tie you in at the waist.

Jeremy Piven’s Leather Jacket


Jeremy Piven, well known for his role in the TV series Mr Selfridge, has been seen sporting a classic deep brown leather jacket, paired with navy jeans and a plain t-shirt to create a relaxed rustic look.

To recreate this look, we recommend our Mac or BuddBrown Leather Jackets. Both stylish yet classic pieces fit the bill perfectly, and thanks to their warm tones, look great paired with blue jeans for a more casual look. As it’s such a classic style, it’s easy enough to dress up or down for whatever occasion you’re heading out to.

Helen Mirran’s Biker Jacket


Blonde bombshell, Helen Mirren, rocks her feminine cut leather jacket with a bright bold lip and simple black dress, for a simple but strong statement.

If you want to go for this classic look, we would recommend wearing our Lisa black leather jacket that has been hand waxed to give a matt satin finish. Almost identical to what Helen is wearing here, and guaranteed to see you through the years. Leather biker jackets are an essential piece in any woman’s wardrobe and can be worn to the office straight to the bar without a thought.

Bradley Cooper’s Antique Leather Jacket


You can’t go wrong with a classic black leather jacket. Bradley Cooper has opted for a casual look, pairing his jacket with dark grey trousers and a lighter grey t-shirt. Want to rock this look? Our Budd black antique leather jacket is a great match. Similar to Idris’ leather jacket but with a classic antique two-tone finish and hand-waxed seams that looks like it has been on every adventure with you.

Pierce Brosnan’s Long Leather Coat


If you prefer the country style, Pierce Brosnan has been seen wearing a long dark brown leather coat, paired with blue jeans and a fleece jumper for an extra layer of warmth.

Our Brett men’s dark brown leather jacket is a great all-rounder that can be thrown on for a long country walk or supporting your team from the sidelines at the weekend.

Jennifer Aniston’s Biker Jacket


Friends star, Jennifer Aniston, can be seen wearing her leather jacket when dodging the paparazzi. To keep herself extra warm and add more colours to the look, she paired it with a purple and taupe scarf, brown buckle belt and blue jeans.

Our Wendy black biker jacket is identical to Anniston’s jacket, with its flattering feminine cut, stitch detailing and gold hardware. Grab your favourite scarf and you’re ready to go.

Barack Obama

Barack Obama is well known for being one of the most stylish men in politics and that is highlighted by his love for leather jackets. He is often seen wearing a formal leather jacket, showing that leather jackets don’t have to be casual. In fact, they’re often the perfect accompaniment to an event outfit. For all your smart and formal occasions, why not choose our 728 Men’s Black Leather Blazer?

Our smart Leather Blazers are perfectly paired with your normal workwear. Throw this on over your button-up shirt and smart trousers to look effortlessly cool at your next meeting.

Denzel Washington

If you want to channel your inner Denzel Washington in Training Day, it sounds like you need a longline leather coat. Most people initially think leather jackets should be short or cropped, but a long leather coat can look even suaver. For a leather coat identical to Denzel’s, opt for our Edward Leather Brown Coat.

Longline leather coats are best worn in the colder months. Pair this with your favourite flannel skirt and jeans for the ideal outfit on a frosty morning.

Take it from the stars. Leather jackets are essential in anyone’s wardrobe. Unless you are going to a strictly formal occasion, they can be worn with practically anything and anywhere. Because they are so versatile, it is important to choose an investment piece that is hard-wearing and will stand the test of time.
