Fashionable Thursday: Utilitarian is What You Might Need
Directly from the fashion shows of Fendi and Chanel, the utilitarian fashion made it to the fashion trends this spring-summer season. Perfection for the potentially more experimental woman; she who loves the earth tones, a little bit of a more masculine touch and structured pieces. Pockets and buttons are for the most part the fact that will offer more of a tough overall look when you have a utilitarian look on. No other than the influence of military, menswear and street style in colors, prints, shapes and silhouettes; the utilitarian movement in fashion is here to stay. Meaning that functionality and a little bit of edge takes over clothing pieces and the shoe department as well, offering a different type of vibe when women get dressed with it. If you haven’t yet, you will notice that cargo pants, cargo skirts, utility jackets, bum bags, button down shirts, boiler suits, earthy hues, patch pockets and even chunky boots are just everywhere. If you love these types of pieces or even if you would like to start experimenting with it, you can always go all the way utilitarian or mix it up with some other more tailored pieces that will complement your look for a more feminine appearance. You can’t go wrong whenever you decide to add extra touches that automatically upgrade an outfit from basic, to the next level. This is the specific case with utility pieces, is not as subtle like other trends, but it will always offer a fashion forward and avant-garde aspect.
Utilitarian is not for certain ages or specific body types, you just need the appropriate amount of bravery and the right attitude. Without hesitations, just dare to implement it in your wardrobe!
