Utility style is a fashion trend that emphasizes functionality, comfort, and durability.
It can be a great way to create a casual and cool look, but there are some common mistakes or faux pas to avoid when dressing utility style.
Here are some tips to help you pull off the trend without looking like you're going to war:
  • Don't wear too many utility pieces at once.
    A utility vest, jacket, or pants can be a statement piece, but wearing them all together can make you look overloaded and bulky.
    Choose one or two utility items and balance them with simpler pieces.
  • Don't mix too many colors or prints.
    Utility style usually features earthy tones like khaki, olive, beige, or brown, or darker tones like black, navy, or grey.
    These colors can create a cohesive and understated look, but adding too many bright colors or patterns can clash and distract from the utility vibe.
    If you want to add some color or print, opt for subtle accents like accessories or details.
  • Don't wear utility pieces that are too tight or too loose.
    Utility style is meant to be comfortable and practical, but that doesn't mean you should sacrifice fit.
    Utility pieces that are too tight can restrict your movement and look uncomfortable, while utility pieces that are too loose can make you look sloppy and shapeless.
    Look for utility pieces that fit well and flatter your body type.
  • Don't forget to accessorize.
    Utility style can be minimalist and functional, but that doesn't mean you have to be boring.
    Accessories can add some personality and flair to your utility look, as well as enhance the functionality.
    For example, you can wear a crossbody bag, a belt bag, a backpack, or a utility pouch to store your essentials.
    You can also wear a hat, sunglasses, gloves, or a scarf to protect yourself from the elements.
    Just make sure your accessories match the utility theme and don't overpower your outfit.
  • Don't wear the wrong shoes.
    Shoes can make or break your utility look, so choose wisely.
    Utility style works well with boots or chunky trainers that are sturdy and comfortable.
    Avoid shoes that are too formal, delicate, or flashy, as they can clash with the utility vibe.
    Also, make sure your shoes are clean and well-maintained, as dirty or worn-out shoes can ruin your whole look.
