Often synonymous with vintage apres ski attire, fleece — which also goes by the names of teddy and sherpa — jackets continue to have their moment in the spotlight thanks to new twists on colours and texture.

Once considered just a sporty and outdoorsy layering piece, fleece jackets are now getting approval from bloggers and stylists for how they mix and match with basics and statement pieces to create all different kinds of looks, thanks to dimension-adding plush. Talk about functional fashion. Perfect for pairing with jeans, dresses, joggers, turtlenecks and blouses, this essential fall layering piece can be worn season after season.
