Not so long ago, fleece jackets were merely seen as a necessary item for hiking, camping, and lounging around the house. They all looked very similar and could not be described as stylish. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for the humble fleece and my love for them intensified when I turned 30 and realized I preferred warmth and comfort over style. I love exploring cold climates on holiday and going for long walks in the middle of winter so I need a jacket that will stop me from turning into a human icicle.
Thankfully, Amazon has plenty of options for this season’s essential outdoorsy item and it turns out fleeces are cooler than ever. Brands are serving up figure-flattering fits, exciting color options, innovative water-resistant finishes, and lightweight, breathable fabrics. And thanks to Amazon Prime Wardrobe, you can try out some of these cute and cozy jackets before you buy.
Amazon Essentials Women's Full-Zip Polar Fleece Jacket: This Amazon jacket features a midweight fleece and a full-zip front, and it'll cost you less than a few takeaway coffees. There are 18 different colorways to choose from, so it feels rude to only buy one. Proving that bundling up doesn't have to be bulky—this fleece is figure-flattering with its contoured side seams.

The North Face Women's TKA Glacier Full Zip Hoodie: North Face fleeces are synonymous with quality – they’re impeccably designed and last for years (I have a North Face fleece that’s a decade old and still looks new). The Glacier is thin enough to ensure that you don’t overheat yet it’s warm enough to keep you toasty on a freezing day. It’s made with recycled polyester too, which is a nice touch.
