The Fleece Fashion Trend Is 2019’s Version of “Dad” Sneakers

Fleeces make me think of the Gap hoodies I wore in sixth grade (geography field trips and garden center uniforms, anyone?). However, in February, prepare to see the humble fleece in many street style pictures. Ganni included fleece gilets (the type you’d find at Snow and Rock or Decathalon) in its S/S 19 collection, and they have already been doing the rounds on Instagram. Uniqlo’s simple zip-up fleece jacket has been selling out in every single color while styles from House of Sunny, Urban Outfitters, and Donni are also becoming cult buys.

So how do you wear a fleece and not look like you’re on a walking holiday in mountains? Keep scrolling for how Instagrammers are wearing fleeces right now, and then shop our edit of the best styles around.
