In the 1930s, leather jackets made their debut for military pilots. Since then, they have become much more than an army outfit and become a cool, trendy fashion statement for many people. Many celebrities wear leather jackets in movies, and some even wear them daily. Our list will look at the top stars who always wear leather jackets and do so with style.
From his days as a WWE wrestler to his movie and TV roles, Dwayne Johnson stands out as one of the coolest people in the world.
Although he’s known for his impressive build, he also has a stylish look that complements his physique, which doesn’t get enough attention. Most of the time, his attire consists of a bomber leather jacket or, his favourite look, a round collared racer-style leather jacket.
Typically, he wears a black leather jacket, jeans, and a pair of black sunglasses in his movies and never fails to look amazing!
Whether on the screen or in real life, Tom Cruise rocks a classic leather jacket with a sense of style. Since his entry into the film industry at 19, he has always been well dressed and extremely handsome.
His role in the film Top Gun saw him wear a classic black army leather jacket paired with aviator sunglasses and slim jeans, which became a signature look. He has worn racer styles, flight jackets, and bomber jackets, and he looks great in them all.
Leonardo di Caprio
Leather jackets are one of Leonardo di Caprio’s most recognisable looks in movies dealing with crime, like The Departed.
Leather jackets are not just a fashion statement he wears on the screen; he wears them almost daily. There is a similarity between his style and that of Rich Wilde from the book of dead slot, as both are vintage in style and feature warm orange and brown shades to create a classic aesthetic. Aside from this, his style offers detailed stitching and cowhide leather, enhancing the vintage look.
Another movie star, Chris Evans, rocks a leather look on and off the screen. He has been in many movies over the years, but his role in Captain America saw him wear a vintage leather army jacket giving him an appearance of a WWII veteran.
When Evans is not on the screen, he usually wears a brown-toned jacket with jeans and a plain white t-shirt that suits him perfectly.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is 75 years old and still looks as incredible as he did back when he played Conan and the Barbarian, wearing nothing but leather pants and boots.
He has since worn classic leather jackets in many films, combining his love for leather with his passion for fashion. In the iconic Terminator franchise, Schwarzenegger stars as the robot sent from the future to save the world with his Harley Davidson leather biker jacket. Combined with his black aviators, this outfit is one of cinema’s most iconic looks.
In the almost hundred years that leather jackets have been around, they have become a fashion statement and a staple piece for any wardrobe. It is hard to imagine them not being around for another hundred years, as their vintage vibe means they will never go out of style.
