With the number of military-inspired pieces we’ve seen on celebrities and bloggers, the utilitarian trend shows no signs of slowing down in 2017! One of the best things about the utilitarian trend is how easy it is to wear; while it’s known for its signature masculine pieces, you can effortlessly juxtapose them with more feminine details.
