Utility Jacket 2022

The utility jacket is characterized by its neutral colors, its pockets and its functional fit. It’s often associated with a more practical fashion and even a countryside style. It often has a petite collar, prominent buttons and at least 2-3 pockets visible. The jacket often hits the hip-length, and sometimes come with a drawstring function by the waist. As already stated, it’s common in neutral colors. Green is perhaps the most popular color, but beige and navy blue are also popular choices.

How To Style It

As the utility jacket is a casual clothing pieces, quite anchored in its practical context, I do think it’s favorable to keep it casual chic. Pair it with jeans and boots for a comfy look. Layer it up with a hoodie for a street style outfit, or go for a shacket under, if it’s a chilly day. I would also include stylish statement materials such as leather and patent leather for a fun contrast. Also, knitted sweaters are a perfect match with utility jackets. If you want to create a more formal look, add a buttoned shirt under your sweater and finalize the look with the utility jacket. As for the color scale, I’d keep it neutral and focus on the one shade of the utility jacket. If it’s a dark green, try some orange, cerise or beige for a contrasting effect.

Street Style Inspiration

And here’s some street style inspiration folks! I love the green utility jacket with the OTK boots in the first picture, such a fierce combination. The matchy purple in the second look is also a gem, love a crispy white with a lavender for spring. As for the third look, the monochromatic beige is a great idea. The beige/yellow shoes contrasts the subtle beige perfectly. Also love the blue hues in the fourth slide. Superb idea to match your shoes and jacket. Fashion is truly as simple as that. And finally, the fifth look is very chic with the matching jacket and pants. The belt creates a more dynamic look, love it!
