Cozy and Chic: How to Style Sherpa Fleece Sweatshirts and Pullovers for Women Over 50

As we all know, age is but a number. While it’s true that bodies change over time, this is no reason to give up your sharp fashion sense or personal style. Even if you prioritize comfort these days, you can still be style-savvy and chic.

A Sherpa-style women’s fleece is the perfect example of a trendy and stylish item that is comfortable and cozy. These sweatshirts and pullovers and warm and cozy without being too hot or constricting and they can be styled for virtually any occasion. Here are the best ways to style your Sherpa fleece sweatshirts, pullovers, and jackets.

Seasonable Style

No matter what season it is, having a go-to comfy hoodie is always a good idea to keep around. A zip-up Sherpa sweatshirt is a fantastic layer, even in summer. Even when the weather is warm, you can bring it on your beach vacation for those evening walks when the warm sun goes down and the ocean breeze picks up.

This piece also makes for a great seasonal transition layer. Dressing in layers is the only way to go for those unpredictable fall and spring days when the weather changes hour by hour. And Sherpa fleeces are an incredibly useful and versatile layer. A Sherpa hoodie can be worn over long sleeves like a jacket or a light layer like a cardigan sweater. It can also be worn as an insulating layer under your outerwear jacket.

Where to Wear Your Sherpa Fleece?

Depending on the exact cut and style, Sherpa fleeces can be styled to compliment almost any outfit, in any situation. A Sherpa fleece-lined denim jacket is an enduring favorite that works with any casual setting or outing. Pairing your Sherpa fleece jacket with a pair of black pants and a dark-colored shirt will give this casual outfit a sophisticated flair and a flattering and slimming effect.

A lighter Sherpa fleece or hoodie can be dressed up for a casually ultra-modern or business casual look by pairing it with wide-legged slacks and a blazer. On the other hand, an extra fluffy all-black Sherpa jacket can be paired with a little black dress and heels for an ultra-sophisticated evening look. The possibilities are truly endless.

Trendy Yet Timeless

They say history repeats itself and this is especially true in the world of fashion. As micro-trends come and go, we see many styles reappear over the decades again and again. This is especially true of Sherpa fleeces and fluffy, puffy oversized jackets. Sherpa fleece-lined jackets were all the rage in the late 1960s and ‘70s. This style resurfaced in the 1990s and now it's back again– or did it ever really go away?

The oversized look in particular is back in a big way and we love this for anyone who wants to prioritize comfort while still looking fashionable and chic. Pair your big comfy cozy Sherpa fleece with leggings and boots for a super comfortable outfit that you can wear almost anywhere. You can easily elevate this casual look with dress boots and minimal but elegant jewelry.

Looks in Leather

Another style trend that pairs well with Sherpa fleece is leather, faux, or suede. You can really pull your look together and take your fleece to another level when pairing it with a contrasting texture such as leather.

A leather midi-length skirt paired with a Sherpa-style women’s lightweight jacket and ankle boots add a certain timeless but modern look to your wardrobe. You can wear these pieces with a simple fitted t-shirt tucked into your skirt, add some tights or leggings, or go bare-legged, depending on the weather.

Travel Tips

A cozy fuzzy Sherpa fleece is the ultimate travel companion. No matter the time of year or the season, airports and airplanes can be absolutely freezing, so why not bring your biggest and comfiest layer that can easily double as a blanket or be folded and tucked into a travel neck pillow?

Pair your sherpa jacket or hoodie with a simple black t-shirt, dark-colored but lightweight pants or leggings, and a pair of stylish women’s ankle boots. Chelsea boots are a great choice for traveling as they tend to be a bit heavier, so wearing them is smarter than packing them. Plus the stretchy ankle window makes them incredibly simple to take on and off when going through airport security. Add a pair of dark sunglasses to this look and you might need to prepare to be mistaken for a celebrity.

Regardless of your age or personal style, it’s easy to look great and feel great in a comfy and cozy Sherpa fleece.
