Teddy coats have been all the rage over the past few winters, but we'd like to introduce you to the fuzzy outerwear's little sister, the fleece jacket. Less bulky and more casual than its popular predecessor, fleece jackets are blowing up right now, thanks in part to celebrities wearing them on repeat. Earlier this week, Jennifer Garner stepped out for a coffee walk in this cozy cream button down, and supermodels like Kaia Gerber and Hailey Bieber have been spotted wearing the same lightweight fleece in multiple colors.

But it's not just famous fans who are convincing us that we need our own everyday fleece jacket. The proof is in the pudding: The cozy coat is versatile for multiple temperatures, ideal for layering, and can be worn everywhere from the gym to the grocery store to a casual brunch. Oh, and did we mention that wearing one feels like wrapping yourself in a blanket? The verdict is in: We all need a wear-everywhere fleece jacket, stat.

Well, you can call off the search before you even begin, because we just found the perfect pick for winter in the Free People FP Movement Adventure Awaits Fleece. We can already see ourselves snuggling into it for chilly morning walks to yoga and throwing it on over sweats for late-night bodega runs. The oversized fit gives off an effortlessly cool look, and it's big enough to layer thick sweaters underneath, too.

Available in 10 pretty colors like soothing lavender, earthy myrrh, and lush pine (which is fitting for the holiday season), the jacket has us considering adding multiples to our cart. Two front pockets allow you to run errands without a purse, and a detachable hood will keep you toasty on even the coldest winter days. Plus, unlike typical fully-fleece jackets, this one features a mix of fuzzy fabric and nylon, giving off a slightly sportier vibe.

You know those pieces that you see and instantly realize that they're going to become one of the most heavily-worn items in your closet? The Free People FP Movement Adventure Awaits Fleece is totally one of those. Say hello to your new favorite jacket.
