Dad Fashion Strikes Again: This High-Street Store Just Made Fleece Cool

Next to Crocs, fleece jackets are probably the least "fashion" clothing items They're for parents on walks in the Peak District, and they usually come with Patagonia or Berghaus branding. But what if I were to tell you that fleece jackets, much like Crocs, are being given a new, fashionable life this season? Thanks to Uniqlo U's new collection, I'm now desperate to get my hands on a fleece.

This is the third U collection from the high-street store, which is led by artistic director Christophe Lemaire. All the pieces, including the fleece jacket, come in mainly neutral colours, and are inspired by the "drive to make clothing an ideal expression of its wearer." Essentially, Uniqlo has reinvented wardrobe basics. Along with the fleece, I've picked eight other pieces I can't wait to get my hands on.
