Re/Done cargo pants
Madewell woven flats
If there’s one trend winning over fashion girls everywhere this season, myself included, it’s unquestionably the utility trend. First of all, you may have noticed that your Insta feed has been flooded with patch pockets, shades of khaki, and boiler suits, and that’s all thanks to the abundance of utilitarian pieces that were all over the runways, utility dressing is a perennial favorite. It’s easy to wear, almost universally flattering, and cool without looking like you gave it too much thought. For example, they are comfortable, and easy to substitute these with the denim in your wardrobe. Additionally, boiler suits, are still having their moment.
Not sure how to wear cargo pants? I like to pair them with a simple tee shirt and woven shoes. Throw on a leather or denim jacket to polish off the look. Take a look down below to find out how to embrace the utility trend in 2019.
If you’re eager to hop on the bandwagon, may I suggest you start with a cool pair of cargo pants as your first foray into the world of functional fashion? They may conjure up images of ’90s girl bands, and the queen of combat pants—Jennifer Aniston. Additionally, they’re a welcome alternative to tired old jeans. And, with so many extra pockets, we can now rock that teeny tiny mini bag we can’t fit a thing in. Also, based upon the current mood in fashion right now, these neutrals aren’t going anywhere. So get shopping!

Embrace the Utility Trend in 2019
For the weekend, wearing utilitarian clothing it’s a no-brainer – simply soften the masculine undertones by adding tactile fabrics, such as a silk shirt or a simple cotton tank. I plan on wearing mine all the time! For the office, give your utility garb a sophisticated spin courtesy of leather accents and tailored shapes.
