People love fleece wear’s cozy feel and casual-cool look – whether it’s a pullover hoodie, zip-up jacket, vest or even joggers. This season, you’ll find fleece pieces in fun, colorful hues, as well as earthy neutrals. Wondering how to create stylish outfits with some of the freshest fleece basics around? We’ve got of-the-moment fleece looks you must rock this fall and winter.
Why Is Fleece the Bees’ Knees?
Why are people flocking to fleece this season? For one, we can point to the revival of ’90s and 2000s nostalgia and passion for its fashion, including fleece. Today, we still love fleece for the same reasons: These easy-care styles go with a wide range of outfits, for a variety of events and occasions.
The uptick of remote work arrangements in the last few years and more casual workplaces also opened the door for a flurry of business-appropriate looks that include casual fleece basics. The rise of streetwear, and street fleece, as a go-to style aesthetic across many demographics also added to fleece’s appeal.
Textured, fleece looks are at home in your living room, on the streets, on the trails and at business meetings.
Look #1: Black Fleece Jacket Over a Cerulean Blue T-Shirt
This is your head-turning outfit for this season! Layer a sleek black fleece full-zip jacket over a cerulean blue t-shirt. Jewel and sky tones in cerulean and royal blue are having a moment in the sun again. These shades flatter most skin tones, and work for men and women.
To get this look, start with the lightweight Next Level Apparel Ladies' Ideal T-Shirt in Turquoise or Tahiti Blue. We love this classic, relaxed-fit scoop-neck style that maximizes comfort and value. (You’ll like wearing this tee so much, it’ll easily become a closet staple.) For him, try on the modern-classic fit Gildan Adult Softstyle® T-Shirt in sky shades of either Royal or Carolina Blue. This favorite t-shirt is made from super-soft 100% ringspun cotton.
Layer the textured Core 365 Ladies' Journey Fleece Jacket in black or Harriton Men's 8 oz. Full-Zip Fleece, also in black, over your sky-shade t-shirt for a fresh look. Pair your look with dark blue leggings or jeans.
Look #2: Grey ‘Teddy’ Fleece Over a Denim Shirt
We’re all still obsessed with “teddy” coats, or textured fleece or sherpa fleece coats. They’re showing up in neutrals this season, like grey and cream. You can layer your grey fleece over a denim shirt for contrast, or go for a tonal look with a gray t-shirt.
For her, we like the cozy Harriton Ladies' 8 oz. Full-Zip Fleece or Dri Duck Aspen Mélange Mountain Fleece Pullover, both in Charcoal. Layer one of these styles over the button-down Ultra Club Ladies' Cypress Denim shirt for a crisp, fresh look.
For a unisex style, for him and her, take a look at the Next Level Apparel Adult Pacifica Denim Fleece Full-Zip Hooded Sweatshirt in Black. The tonal color variations in the fleece fabric create a black-and-charcoal look. Layer this fashion-forward fleece over the equally on-trend Bella + Canvas Unisex Triblend T-Shirt in either Grey Triblend or Solid Dark Grey Triblend. By the way, Bella + Canvas Triblends are knit with a 40 single needle, so the fabric is extra fine with a very silky hand for maximum comfort.
For a total head-to-toe tonal look, check out the comfortable Burnside Adult Fleece Jogger Pant in Charcoal or Heather Gray.
Look #3: Plaid Polar Fleece
Patterns are another long-lasting favorite for fall and winter – this season, specifically plaid and checks. If you caught Ralph Lauren’s offerings, you’d have seen bid, bold, modern checks. Burberry showed off a more traditional check plaid. Whatever your plaid pleasure, it’s even better when you can pair it with fleece.
Try on our Burnside Unisex Pullover Hooded Polar Fleece in Black and Red Plaid, wih a hood and handy kangaroo pocket. Polar fleece is sumptuously warm and comes in different thicknesses. We love that polar fleece repels water and dries quickly. If you’re wearing this plaid fleece pullover in a sudden downpour or snow shower, it’ll dry more quickly than other types of fleece while keeping you warm.
You can also wear your plaid on your pants! Burnside offers a unique Unisex Flannel Jogger in two plaid patterns: Ecru/Black and Blue/Black.
