This Fall is bringing with it a cozy cold-weather trend that your dad would totally approve of. And yes, that's a good thing, at least when it comes to this retro outerwear push. That's right, we're talking about the classic polar fleece jacket. Be it half-zip, full-zip, mock-neck, collared, or the like, it's a nostalgic style that can't help but bring a smile to your face. Especially as you look back on that first triple-snap fleece in bright red that you wore into the ground as a kid. At least I did . . .
Though your dad might still be patching holes in his very well-loved vintage Patagonia fleece stitched by Yvon Chouinard himself (one can only dream . . . ), we're going shopping. After all, from Sandy Liang to Tory Sport and - yes - new versions of that OG Patagonia, there are just so many styles to choose from, we can't possibly watch this trend from the sidelines.
Whether you dress down a midi skirt or keep it casual in denim, you're definitely going to need at least once fleece jacket in rotation this Fall. Ahead, shop our current favorites for every budget.
