There are so many cool fleeces on the internet right now

There are so many cool fleeces on the internet right now

It’s official, fleeces are cool. Once reserved for mountaineers, your dad and teachers on school trips, you’re now just as likely to see winter fleeces worn with a Dior satchel as you are on the slopes.

I’ve only recently developed an extraordinary desire to own one myself. Unlike ridiculously high-heels and ultra-thin duster jackets, I’ve been welcoming practical fleeces into my wardrobe with open arms as temperatures continue to dip. Layer yours under a cashmere turtleneck and an oversized coat, or make it brunch-appropriate by wearing it with chic tailored pants and snakeskin boots like Gigi Hadid.

You can find a wide-range of colours, styles and silhouettes from high-street retailers and high-fashion designers. Splurge on Sandy Liang’s blue denim-inspired version, which you’ll own forever – it might be expensive for a fleece, but the material is so plush and the details are so thoughtful. If you’re looking to keep things cheap and cheerful, try the pink button-down from Zara or go gaga on leopard print at Topshop. Regardless of your style (or price-point), there’s plenty of options to keep you comfortable. Plus, wearing one feels like you’re being hugged by a cloud. What more could you want?
