Fashion meets function in spring’s most practical trend as utility takes over the season ahead. Championed by Stella McCartney, Fendi, Isabel Marant, and Alberta Ferretti, the allure of this softly tailored trend is hard to ignore.
Stemming from normcore, spring/summer 2019’s take on utilitarian fashion is more elevated and luxurious than before. Cargo pants are teamed with silky camis, safari shirts are tucked into pleated midi (and mini) skirts, and boiler suits — this season’s must-have — are paired with stiletto heels (or even sandals for summer).
Expect to see utility details such as D-ring belts, drawstrings, zips and pockets galore adorning feminine shapes in muted shades of beige, navy, cream, and khaki up and down the high street in the coming weeks and months as utility dressing is in. Shop the maven46 edit below.
