We have seen Bradley Cooper portray many different characters throughout his time on screen, but we're not here to tell you how to dress up as a sniper. Instead, this style guide will take you through his best outfit moments, and show you how to get these looks yourself.
Bradley Cooper has been a huge name in the film industry for many years now. Fun fact: He was one of the world's highest paid actors for three years- that's impressive.
Cooper has had its fair share of style ups and downs. His style is one of those 'when it rains, it pours' types, you know what we mean? He either really misses the mark or steps into the light in an exquisite three-piece suit. In this style guide we have touched on both, suggesting how to improve his misses and join him on his victories.
Bradley Cooper 2016
In 2016, Bradley Cooper starred and produced the film War Dog alongside actors Jonah Hill and Miles Teller. We're all into the whole rough and ready look, although we're not sure if this is a little hard on the rough? Either way, this look definitely has potential (and creases).
We suggest if you're going for the less formal suit look, you should do it properly. This means getting your iron out. A white t-shirt looks good tucked into a pair of skinny chinos. Layer this look with a blazer to add the smart element, and finish the look with a nice pair of shoes- no trainers. This way, you can get away with the rogue smart casual outfit without looking a bit... hmm.
We don't actually mind the excessive facial hair. True, it's not what you'd expect for a premiere, but it's not that bad, really. If you, like Bradley here, have all the hair but no idea, let us help you. Keeping your beard in check isn't as hard as it may seem, all it takes is some simple grooming. Once you find the right products that work for you, stick to them!
Bradley Cooper Suit
We want to prove to you that Cooper can, in fact, wear a suit, and wear it well. We're throwing it back to the 2015 premier of Joy where Cooper pulls off an immaculate three-piece grey suit. A grey suit is a must-have in every man's formal wear wardrobe. If the event you're going to doesn't require a full suit then you can always break the pieces down. Wear the blazer with a pair of jeans, or wear a t-shirt tucked into the trousers for a smart casual style.
Bradley Cooper The Hangover
Unless you've been hiding under a rock since 2009, you will be familiar with The Hangover films. Set in Las Vegas, the story follows 4 men after a stag-do goes wrong, very wrong. Either way, if this hangover-gone-very-wrong look is one that you desire, we're here to help.
This look is easy and casual. Cooper wears a blue shirt with the sleeves rolled up- a great way to dress down a shirt. He pairs the shirt with a pair of grey wash jeans. Obviously, this look was supposed to look ragged for the film's sake, however, this style is easily transformed but altering the fit and mixing up the shoes.
To dress this look down for a casual style wear a pair of trainers. A pair of court trainers will look smarter than a pair of vans, but both will work. To dress this look up, get yourself a pair of loafers. Loafers are a must-have shoe. To get extra 'cool' points, roll up the jeans and get your ankles out!
Leather Jacket Style
This look is definitely one of Bradley Cooper's hits. He styles a leather jacket so effortlessly, teaming it with a plain white t-shirt and some blue jeans. There are a lot of different leather jacket styles on the market, so figure out which one would compliment your style the most. When buying a leather jacket, we recommend you go for real leather, as the quality and wear will be much better. Obviously, they'll cost more, but a leather jacket is a wardrobe staple. This look is so easy to re-create.
Cooper is no stranger to a strong pair of shades. He is most often spotted wearing a pair of aviator sunglasses. Aviators are a timeless accessory, ready to compliment most styles. There are currently so many aviators on the market, so check out this guide before buying yours.
If you're one of those who likes to mix up your sunnies depending on your outfit, that's ok, too. There is no need to break the bank on one pair- there are plenty of cheaper options on the market that don't compromise quality for cost.
How to Dress Like Bradley Cooper
- Invest in a decent suit. Even if you don't wear the suit in its entirety, you can break it down and incorporate the blazer or trousers in a smart casual look.
- A t-shirt is a must have when turning to Cooper's style. You'll be surprised how far a decent white, grey and black t-shirt will take you.
- Get yourself a leather jacket. You can dress it up or down, and a quality one will last you years to come.
- Bradley Cooper loves to accessorise with sunglasses. Grab a pair of aviators to really nail his style.
On That Note
Bradley Cooper either likes to keep his style casual or go all out in a three-piece suit. His style is generally relaxed, with a lot of t-shirts and jeans as his go-to pieces. Even if you're not all that into his style, you can still extract elements of his wardrobe and make it your own. Stock up on sunnies, grab a leather jacket and go for it. In the words of Mr Chow, "So long, gay boys!"
