After all, even though there are no official restrictions on this side of the new year, festive New Year’s Eve plans still look as fuzzy and far away as they did last year for those of us dodging or recovering from coronavirus. Which means one thing: dialling up on comfort-first clothes to ensure that at least something nourishes the soul this winter, and there’s no better item to do that than a fleece.
Some are big and boxy, some are high-neck (even better for sartorial insulation), and some are statement-making and entirely worthy of attention, but whatever your style there is a new-gen fleece to suit you and your style for the upcoming festive season.
