Hillary Clinton's jazzy fleece has become a celebrity in its own right

After her shock defeat to Donald Trump in the US election, the whole world wondered what Hillary Clinton would be doing. How would she be spending her newfound free time? What would she be thinking about? And importantly, what would she be wearing?

Now, a few of those questions are being answered. It turns out that Hills is clearing her head and taking some time out in a particularly ordinary fashion: by going on a hike through the mountains. A few lucky walkers have bumped into her on her wanders, sporting a cracking colourful fleece.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen her Patagonia fleece, which is actually an old favourite of Clinton’s.

Our overriding thought is: where can we get our hands on that jazzy fleece? Hillary is proving once again that she is nothing short of a style icon.

Many of us just hope and pray that next time we’re tramping round the woods we run into Clinton (and her fleece).

To be fair, if we’d been beaten to the White House by a reality TV star, all we’d want to do is pop on our oldest trusty fleece and go for a nice walk through the forest. Just keep being you, Hillary.
