Long associated with outdoorsy types, women's fleece jackets are now a mainstream outerwear staple. On-trend styles made from the performance-wear fabric—like teddy coats or teddy bear coats, as they're also known—are popping up on fashion runways and street-style stars with increasing frequency. The material's rich, nubby texture makes it an easy stand-in for fur, and its sportswear origins make it a natural fixture of the popular athleisure aesthetic. Fleece jackets haven't lost their original fan base, though. Hikers, skiers and other outdoor athletes still count on fleece vests and jackets to combat the cold while they chase adventure. The iconic jackets are also great for keeping warm on the way to and from a workout—the lightweight Better Sweater jacket from Patagonia and Shelbe Raschel jacket from The North Face are perfect for this—especially during those frigid winter months when leaving the house for the gym seems daunting.
