The battle between form and function is one that we have wrestled with constantly this year. Since the temperature has plummeted and the weather has made a resolute decision to take no prisoners, now more than ever we are seeking pieces that can deliver warmth with a capital 'W'.

Much as the situation tempts us to ransack our winter wardrobe and layer with wild abandon, there is no reason to compromise on style – as evidenced by Hailey Bieber's latest service to fashion.

So far this season the supermodel's outerwear game has been nothing short of extraordinary. Between serving 'Old money' in a luscious £12k Saint Laurent faux fur and rocking an ultra-broad chocolate brown tailoring piece on her coffee run, the 26-year-old has set the bar sky high.

However, never one to shy away from a challenge, Hailey outdid herself on Monday when she stepped out on the streets of California in a piece that felt long overdue a revival. Giving the retro-style fleece a stylish update, the Rhode founder looked toasty, and utterly unfazed by the cold, in a colourful oversized piece by Conner Ives.

The half-zip sweater, crafted from a plush fleece, depicted a fiery mountain scene, and had an unmistakably retro feel about it on account of its warm, autumnal hues.

Despite its 1970s-inspired colour palette, a pop of vibrancy delivered via contrasting piping provided a certain freshness. But it was clear that the 'Dad vibes' were out in full force – Hailey styled her multi-coloured fleece with a pair of chunky sneakers, created by her beloved New Balance, alongside an emerald-green sports cap.

The supermodel topped off her look with a pair of rectangular tortoise shades and a neutral pair of cycling shorts – nodding to the gym looks often sported by Princess Diana, Hailey's personal style icon, in the 1980s.

Who could have guessed that the humble fleece possessed so much sartorial potential? Thanks for the tip-off Hailey.
