Alongside PSLs and leggings, a fleece jacket used to be a key part of the Basic Student starter pack. Now, the fashion industry is claiming it as its own. Indie designer Sandy Liang was the first to adopt the look back in 2015 with her Insta-famous outerwear, but the trend is peaking. Philip Lim, Fendi, and other top designers elevated the jacket for the Fall ‘19 runway, literally putting the ‘camp’ in ‘campy.’

Expect to see shearling move beyond college campuses and hiking trails, thanks to reworked silhouettes and trims in leather, or just wear an OG Patagonia with a floral dress (like at Coach 1941).
