How To Wear Utility Trend

I love it when fashion fuses with functionality – anyone else agree? This easy-to-wear, perfect-for-every-event look is definitely something I’m into and I can already tell you that the few utility pieces I’ve picked up so far are going down a treat in my wardrobe.

It’s a big step, especially if you’re a girl who’s into her florals, tulle skirts and sequins; it’s a little more stripped back than all of that. But there’s definitely a way for all of you guys to nail the neutral-hued, pocket-laden trend that’s going on here and here’s how:

All In One

If you love the utility trend, a trusty boiler suit may be for you. Grab it in beige or khaki and pair with chunky trainers for the day, switching to black or neutral heels if you’re going out later. If you’re want, add some clips or a hair scarf to put some personality into the look and add a feminine touch to the outfit. 

Cover Up

Maybe utility isn’t really your thing but that shouldn’t stop you from having a go! Take it one piece at a time and maybe start off with a combat jacket so your whole outfit isn’t a trend you’re just trying out. Wear exactly what you’d wear normally – jeans or fun-textured dress – and throw the jacket on top as a simultaneous staple and afterthought for your look.

Head To Toe

If you’re a die-hard working girl, you need to go all out. I’m talking button-down shirts, chinos and pockets – lots of pockets. I’d vote mixing and matching your neutral shades here – perhaps a light beige mixed with a copper and throw some khaki in there for good luck too. Wear with some colour-popping mules for a fun twist or stay true with a pair of loafers


Maybe you want your clothes to stay exactly so – that’s cool! Join the utilitarian army via your bags, shoes, belts – this is even more fun to play around with. Think khaki belts with lots of pouches and key rings, boxy bags and all the patent loafers and flat mules (think perfect Private who shines their shoes relentlessly) with that all-important buckle or bar.
