5 Days, 5 Ways: Fleece Pullover Outfits for Guys

when the weather calls for cozy layers

By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Jan 23 2024 | 4 min read


Here at SG HQ, we’re fully onboard the fleece pullover renaissance (the fleecaissance?). This light yet cozy layer feels like pajamas, adds some color to your outfit, and can be layered both over and under for maximum versatility.

If you haven’t seen one of these since the 7th grade, it’s definitely time to reinvest in one, a few sizes up (this style runs large though, so maybe one size down from your usual size).

What makes fleece pullovers perfect for right now?

If you’re working from home, a fleece pullover outfit is perfect for trying just a little bit harder, even if you don’t have any Zoom calls on your schedule. Don’t get me wrong; we’re all for a cozy hoodie on a cold day. Sometimes, though, you want to reach for something similarly cozy but not so casual.

Much like the cargo pant, the fleece pullover is a middle school staple you can proudly rock today.

Below, check out five fleece pullover outfits to wear this fall and winter:
