Fleece is a warm and inexpensive fabric that keeps you warm and comfortable on even the coldest days. Invented in the late 1970's as a synthetic alternative to wool, fleece fabric is used for any number of items from sheets and blankets to slippers and pajamas. But the best use for fleece is in a coat. Fleece does not absorb moisture, so it can keep you warm no matter what the weather. Fleece coats are far more lightweight than wool and can keep you just as warm. It is also a great vegan choice and can be earth-friendly if you choose a fabric made using recycled plastic. The only trick is figuring out what kind of coat to buy!
A light fleece jacket is great for a chilly fall day. You can throw on the coat and be on your way in no time. Plus, most fleece coats are made in stylish and sporty styles so you can wear them both indoors and out. If sporty isn't your style, try a fleece pea coat instead. Where wool pea coats can be heavy and bulky, a fleece version will keep you just as warm without all the added weight on your shoulders. Other girls fleece coat options include flirty details like rosettes, cute buttons and matching belts. For men, fall fleece jackets range from simple and sporty to dressy enough for your work clothes. The important thing is that these coats usually only contain a single layer of thick fleece, which offers superior breathability and helps you adapt from fall days that shift rapidly from warm to cold and back again.
