28th September 2017

Leather biker jackets have no limits. The ultimate wardrobe staple, perfect for every age, figure, occasion and season! Forget about not being able to wear something due to your age. Biker Jackets are no longer sole preserve for the die-hard motorcycle enthusiast, they have taken over the fashion world. And we take some celebrity inspiration to show you how to wear a leather biker jacket.

How the celebs do it

Sometimes convincing yourself you can pull off a look you like can be the most difficult thing. We’ve selected some celebrities, wearing bikers not too different from our own styles, to show how good you can look.


Here she is, national treasure Carol Vorderman rocking a leather biker, casually styled with black jeans and a neutral knit. This is the perfect, effortless way to wear a biker. Our new Terri leather biker jacket is a close match to the one Carol is wearing. And as the autumnal months grow closer and cooler, this is a great way to add another layer over your knits. Choosing a vertical, asymmetrical zip gives edge, but also flatters.


The ever stylish Alex Jones wraps up effortlessly during rehearsals with a subtle stitched detail leather jacket. Again, the wardrobe staple has been casually styled with some denim jeans for a smart casual appearance. The Naomi leather biker jacket helps carry off the casual look. Stitched side panels and vertical zips echo Alex’s biker choice, with a contemporary twist.


Super Model chic. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley keeps warm in luxe style with a quilted shoulder jacket much like our Carmel design. Admittedly, it’s difficult for her not to look great, but Rosie illustrates how leather bikers are the ideal layer for every season. Every new season comes a new design. From quilted shoulders, to subtly stitched details, the iconic design is constantly evolving.

Stop the Press

Prince Harry’s love interest, Meghan Markle, was spotted at the Invictus Games in Toronto wearing a burgundy biker. You have to agree, it’s extremely similar to our Toni leather biker jacket in berry. Donning an appropriately autumnal rich red hue from head to toe, this tran-seasonal look is an elegant way to style a leather biker. As a result of Meghan's impact, we think the Toni is the perfect way to replicate this sophisticated look.

What are the rules for styling your biker jacket?

When it comes to styling this versatile staple, there are simply no rules! For its unmatched ability to add dimension to any look, the leather biker jacket should be seen as a wear-over-everything jacket. The sophisticated, yet stylish appeal of leather jackets can be a great blend to almost any occasion, as proven by Meghan Markle. Once again, we've hand selected some celebrities who've styled their biker jacket for various occasions.


Myleene Klass means business. Teamed with a bright pop of turquoise, Myleene has rolled the sleeves up of her biker jacket and in addition with her aviator glasses this outfit is perfect for the warmer months.


Scottish weather presenter turned fashion icon, knows exactly how to style a leather biker jacket! Carol Kirkwood perfectly illustrates how to look great at fifty-five with her casual off duty look. She's teamed her navy leather jacket (similar to our Jess jacket) with black jeans, a plain t-shirt and finally a contrasting tote bag.


The lady we all know and love, Lorraine Kelly wears the perfect Autumnal outfit. We all know how temperamental the weather can be during these transitional months and Lorraine has styled her layered look to perfection. Start with a lightweight knit, layered with a biker jacket and a printed scarf. No matter your age or figure, anyone can replicate this classic look.


Unsurprisingly, former model Diane Kruger knows exactly how to dress for every occasion. This outfit is perfect for heading out with your girl friends. Drape your leather biker over the shoulders, just like Meghan Markle. Add detailed accessories, such as a belt and embellished clutch bag, to complete the look.


Amongst Amanda Holden's many talents, she sure knows how to wear a leather biker jacket. Worn over a sophisticated lace dress, the jacket adds edge to the look. Simply style yours over a autumnal floaty dress for an elegant appearance.

What can celebrities teach us on how to wear a leather biker jacket?

If there’s anything we can learn from these celebrities wearing leather biker jackets is that: age is just a number and everyone can rock a timeless biker jacket! Whether it is layered over a lightweight knit, or with your favourite skirt for a night out, this staple should be an essential in your wardrobe. The variation in colour and subtleties in style means there is a design for every age, figure, season and occasion.
