There’s the classic leather jacket, the sportier bomber jacket, and there’s also the evergreen motorcycle jacket – but the running jacket that makes the statement leaves them all in the dust.

With abundant bright colors, loud logos and eclectic patchwork, fast outerwear has been eembraced by Elsa Hosk, Bella Hadid, Kim Kardashian, Julia Fox, Dua Lipa and none other than professional racing driver Lewis Hamilton himself.

Seen on the podiums of Roberto Cavalli, Diesel of Glenn Martens, MM6 Maison Margiela, the racing jacket aims for gold. Whether you’re ready to hop on the back of a motorcycle or take part in a high-speed chase, the leather piece adds the perfect amount of extra edge to an ensemble.

Here, United States rounded up the latest A-listers to embrace the running jacket trend, from Elsa Hosk to Dua Lipa. By far the hottest trend of the summer, you can almost smell the burning rubber.
