This Uniqlo Fleece Is Being Hyped Up By Fashion Girls Across the World

Fleeces make me think of the Gap hoodies I wore in year six (geography field trips and garden centre uniforms, anyone?). However, in February, prepare to see the humble fleece in many street style pictures. Ganni included fleece gilets (the type you'd find at Snow and Rock or Decathalon) in its spring/summer 2019 collection and they have already been doing the rounds on Instagram.

Uniqlo's simple zip-up fleece jacket has been selling out in every single colour, while styles from House of Sunny, Urban Outfitters and Donni are also becoming cult buys. So how do you wear a fleece and not look like you're on a walking holiday in the Peak District? Keep scrolling for how Instagrammers are wearing fleeces right now, and then shop our edit of the best styles around.
