I am always geared up for the utility trend. In fact, I don’t consider it a new trend at all since I’ve been wearing some version of a uniform since I discovered its magical utility. In college, I shopped at the Army Navy Surplus store where you could buy the most amazing industrial workwear shirts and army cargo pants and all things camo! I’m certain it wasn’t considered a preferred look back then but it is now! And the good news for you and me is we don’t have to shop at the Army Navy Surplus store to find utility wear because it’s a bona fide trend for Spring/Summer 2019. I’ve always used camo/army green as a neutral and the outfit above highlights this. The shirt is a simple blue striped button up paired with army green cargo pants. Pretty basic. But add the blue suede heels and the vintage Chanel vanity case and you have a legit outfit. Scroll down for some of the best chic utility inspired pieces for Spring/Summer.
