In the past few years, we’ve all gained a newfound appreciation for comfort. While most of us have started to reincorporate movement and style back into our lives, that inner desire for nurturing and coziness still remains. That’s why, as fall rolls in, the fleeces from the FP Movement collection are at the top of our list.
In case you haven’t heard of it, FP Movement is a line of activewear, beyond-the-gym staples and supplements from Free People. It’s designed to honor self and spirit from the inside out, no matter how you prefer to move. But it’s not solely about the individual; this line also believes in the power of community, which is why 1% of all FP Movement purchases goes to its partner Girls Inc., a nonprofit that, through advocacy, inspires young girls to be strong, smart and bold.
When it comes to its activewear, all pieces are designed using signature technical fabrics that are performance-ready, designed for movement and undeniably comfortable. And while you can definitely find sweat-wicking basics for summer (like some cult-favorite FP Movement leggings), these fleece jackets are an absolute must-have as the weather turns cold.
