We have discussed several times about outfits and accessories that you might need for different occasions and it is only fitting that we discuss softshell jackets.
Whether you are an active person or not, it doesn’t matter! Softshell jackets are designed for functionality, comfort and practicality.
If you are not familiar with softshells, what sets them apart from other jackets, is the material and design. They are made of Polyester and lined with fleece on the inside. This makes them breathable and insulated, as well as water-resistant. They make the perfect outdoors jacket!
Softshells are typically used as sportive jackets because they are functional and make movement easy, therefore they do not affect performance, like a heavier jacket would.
These jackets are lightweight, too and suitable for layering, which means that you can wear them underneath a heavier jacket, usually a hardshell.
We have selected nine gorgeous jackets for women, by one of the most renown brands when it comes to sports clothes and winter clothing, Geographical Norway. You are sure to fall in love with them!
