Fleece jackets are ideal for the fall, winter and spring because you can wear them on their own or layer them under a heavier coat when it’s frigid outside. A good one should feel soft against the skin, deliver optimal warmth without overheating and contain pockets for storing things like your phone, chapstick or money. So, if you’re looking for a fleece jacket for your little or big girl, you’re in luck, because we curated a list of our favorite styles on the market. Our selection includes picks from well-respected brands like The North Face and Columbia and covers a range of price points.
