What EXACTLY is the new “Utility Chic” look trending this spring and how am I going to pull it off?!?! The nerd in me went straight to the Dictionary for better understanding, and I came up with my own version.
1. Utility is something useful, so think Functional clothing rather then Attractive!
2. Chic means elegantly and very stylishly fashionable.
Put 1 and 2 together and you have some combination of functional fashion that IS attractive and stylish! You can also imagine a variety of greens, and beige tones, large pockets, and paperback waists. Are you getting a vision?
To make this look work you don’t have to buy a whole new wardrobe, just pick out a few staples! Try adding a military jacket over a chic floral for a fresh look!
I love the classic Utility jacket which feels just like an old favorite. It has large pockets, a draw string waist, and an amazing stand collar that looks great flat, or buttoned up!
This is one trend that has lots of room for creativity! Don’t be afraid to play with different colors and textures to to sizzle this spring in runway style.
