When the uniform-like trouser meets a feminine silhouette, we get one of summer’s hottest trouser trend — utility trousers. It is interesting to note that utility trousers have been inspired by the prevailing global political scenario. Cargos are definitely pretty last decade and we think that’s what gave way to a dressier and more fashionable utility trousers. If you haven’t had the time to hit the salon lately, want to take a break from summer dresses or even shorts, or just need to bring your conservative side up for travel or unusual meetups, we recommend you try a pair of these trousers STAT.
Did you really think that utility trousers cannot get any boho? Well, let’s change that for you. All you need is a pair of comfortable utility trousers in a muted hue, a cami or a strappy top in a hue that blends in instead of standing out, and a boho shrug. This is also a great way to camouflage, in case you feel that you’re not in your best shape (though, we suggest you stop caring what others think of you). For this time of the year when the weather is playing some wreckless games to get you tanned, this look makes a lot of sense. Make it interesting with beaded jewellery, cane bags, and a pair of embellished or embroidered sandals.
A Grungy Vibe
Too much denim is never a bad thing. But if you’re looking to take a comfortable break from denims and want something relaxed without losing that appeal, we suggest you go for a pair of utility trousers and a denim jacket. Denim jackets are back in fashion and don’t seem to be leaving the sartorial scene anytime soon. This makes for a great outfit for travel. A cool slogan tee and funky shoes is perfect to bring your teenage years back. Make sure your utility trousers are not too bright or too light in colour. Hues of brown, coffee, ochre, khaki, and olive are perfect.
That Chic Twist
Whoever thought utility trousers can’t be sexy and dressy, clearly didn’t see the complete picture. Don a racerback or a leotard in a deep hue, with woven utility trousers, add a pair of heels, and you’re all set to hit the club or get to brunch. Hues such as navy, wine or mustard make for good coordinates.
