The utilitarian trend for summer combines comfort and street-chic style to create a universally flattering and easy summer look. The key to styling this trend without looking safari ready is all in the details, like the fabrics, the silhouettes, and the accessories that add a feminine touch to the typically masculine characteristics of utilitarian looks. Take a look at 3 ways bloggers are wearing the utility trend this summer.
A waist-cinching belt creates a flattering silhouette for a comfortable, cool and stylish utility style shirtdress. I love how Emma paired her dress with contrasting neutral accessories.
Try a Jumpsuit
A linen or cotton jumpsuit is the perfect throw-on-and-go piece for beating the summer heat. Keep this one piece look simple and lightweight with neutral slide sandals and minimal accessories, like Natasha.
Switch Up Your Shorts
Trade your denim shorts this summer for a pair of high-waisted, belted khaki shorts for a comfortable and casual look. Julie created the perfect vacation ready look by tying an embroidered button-down top with her shorts and completing her outfit with lace-up sandals.
