5 Ways To Do Utility Dressing With A Summer Twist




Back to Trends



Like it practical? Utility dressing is back in a big way this summer, but made more easy and breezy with lighter colours, softer fabrics and fresh details. Keep reading to discover our five favourite trends…

1. Paperbag shorts


Stick to the trusted silhouette and exposed-button detail with the paperbag short but go for colours like dusty pink, rust or sand instead of khaki and black.

2. Boilersuits


The boilersuit comes in softer fabrics and shapes that give it a new lease of life for warmer weather. Add a belt to switch things up even more.

3. Shackets


When it comes to shackets, pick pieces with multiple pockets and a slightly longer silhouette. A faded camo print or a soft pink wash will give extra interest.

4. Shirt dresses


New to the utility line-up are shirt dresses. Go for classic shades and styles updated with practical belt details and Retro buttons.

5. Mini skirts



Keep it muted with a mini skirt and pick from black washes or shades of dark green. The A-line silhouette is key, whereas hardware details and contrast stitching is optional.
