This Retro Fleece Trend Is Making Its Cozy Comeback

This Retro Fleece Trend Is Making Its Cozy Comeback

When we envision the trends of yesteryear, we conjure up images of our favorite supermodels clad in low-rise leather trousers, baggy jeans, and cozy packable jackets designed for camping trips. Like with slip dresses and combat boots, lately, we’ve been looking to the ’90s for retro-style inspiration — and this season’s newest trend resurgence is further evidence of just that: fleece fashion.

The sporty-snug-style hybrid is no longer exclusive to hikers, rock climbers, or your middle-school self. Considering the lasting effects of Patagonia, L.L Bean, and The North Face, the fleece’s nostalgic appeal isn’t going to fade off the fashion scene any time soon — especially when cabincore is all the rage. Fall is here with winter following in its footsteps, so we’re all about finding cozy loungewear-adjacent pieces to bundle ourselves up in. We hunted down a number of classic to reimagined fleece styles ahead — from buttery iterations to retro jackets lined with the stuff and even a pair of stretch pants (plus a bucket hat) in fleecey form.
