Fashionable fleece jackets that will keep you cozy through spring

Last fall, I was gifted a robust, weighty, camouflage-patterned pullover fleece. Because I mostly work from my home, and spend a lot of time doing intermittent errands and fitness activities, I realized the moment I first tried it on that it was going to be my winter go-to layering piece. Then I started getting a flurry compliments — from friends at coffee ("what a cute pattern!"), from the receptionist at the gym ("fleece — very on trend!"), from other customers at the pharmacy and grocery store — and it quickly elevated from outdoorsy activewear to urban necessity. At this point, I can't imagine enduring any chilly days without it.

I'm certainly not alone in my love of fleece jackets, with countless styles on Amazon going viral, as well as new fleece options launching at all our favorite sites on what feels like a weekly basis. Especially since it's nearing spring, when a light jacket is optimal, we thought it'd be the perfect time to round up our favorite stylish fleeces from across the internet. Start getting ready for that flurry of compliments now.

This is the fleece jacket that started it all. With a thick outer layer, side slits and high neckline, the fact that it's on sale is making me consider buying another.
