Women's Fleece Jackets
It’s official…fleece season is here! From printed plaid zip-ups to cozy monochrome cowl necks, we love women’s fleece jackets in every style and color. Whether you’re heading out on a hike or working fleece into your everyday rotation, there’s a style and silhouette that always checks the right boxes. So, let’s unpack the many iterations of fleece and why it’s an essential wardrobe piece we love.
Pullover Fleece Top
So effortless and so cozy, a women’s fleece pullover can be worked into any look. So, swap your usual sweater for a cozy crewneck fleece paired with your fave women’s jeans and a sporty pair of sneakers or cute booties. On extra chilly days, layer on a women’s coat and a colorful cashmere scarf or opt for a turtleneck or cowlneck fleece for a little extra coverage. We can’t get enough of fleece tops that have thumbholes to keep your hands toasty, too. Dress up your pullover fleece top by selecting a lightweight fitted style that can be tucked into high-waisted pants and paired with a tailored blazer.
Full-Zip Fleece Top
Full-zip fleece tops (aka women’s fleece jackets) are excellent if you’re about to hit the slopes or hike some rugged trails. We’re partial to styles designed by top activewear brands like The North Face or Columbia that are known for their durability and high-tech features. They also come in bold prints and colors that stand out even in a snowstorm, so don’t be afraid to mix it up.
Keep in mind that fleece tops offer lots of warmth, but no protection from rain, sleet or snow, so you’ll want to layer a waterproof shell or jacket on top of your fleece as soon as there’s any sign of precipitation. Make sure your protective shell is big enough to fit over even your fluffiest fleece. On extra cold days, layer fleece leggings under waterproof pants and wear warm wool socks and waterproof boots, too.
Shopping Tip: If you prefer all-in-one styles, shop for cold-weather jackets that are designed with a waterproof shell and a cozy fleece lining.
Quarter-Zip Fleece Top
Women’s quarter-zip or quarter-snap fleeces are so in right now. They work well over a simple tee or tank top and offer extra neck warmth if you snap or zip them all the way up. Pick up a colorblocked style for a sporty look with an extra pop of color or keep it simple with an all-black or neutral-hued women’s fleece that goes with everything.
Women’s fleece vests are another way to corner the layering trend. They’re perfect for those in-between days when you just want a little extra to keep your core warm. For a rugged, off-duty look, layer a fleece vest over a bold plaid flannel and pair it with skinny jeans and lug-sole booties.
’Tis the season to get extra cozy. Shop women’s fleece jackets at Macy’s.
