In the material world, silk, cashmere, and cotton are the popular girls. And they’ve been picking on fleece for years.
But like most ugly ducklings, the outcast fabric grew up into a beautiful swan in the form of Plush Legwear.
Designer Jennifer Kim found a way to make fleece’s main strength (warmth) shine while keeping its mocked aesthetic under wraps. Tights, leggings, knee- and thigh-highs, hats, and arm warmers are all made of fleece-lined cotton, poly, or spandex, which means they are cozy, comfy, and stylish.
No, the fleece does not add inches to your thighs, miraculously, and they even braved a recent snowstorm brilliantly.
Scratchy wool tights be damned. Expensive pilling cashmere numbers? Enjoy the outcast.
A new queen has been crowned.
