Spring Trend: Chic Utility Style


One of the noticeable trends this spring is the chic utility trend style. The chic utility/military-inspired trend is evident in all spring collections now including White House Black Market (WHBM) spring arrivals and my chic utility pieces in post is no exception. Yes, I know it is hard to think about shorts or any spring or summer clothing when it’s been 30-40-something degrees the past few days. For me, thinking and shopping for spring and summer is helping console me as I anticipate warmer temperatures. Adding to that is the enormous spring new arrivals everywhere. I have been stocking up on spring items including these shorts, sweater jacket and pleated ruffle blouse for work as seen on my Instagram. White House Black Market has a lot of pieces that I can’t wait to start incorporating into my work style and beyond.

If you haven’t started planning your spring and summer wardrobe, this is a great time to start. You can start with the utility trend. Whether it is the military inspired white jacket or this gray cropped military jacket, you can be sure to transition smoothly from winter to spring. As we await steady warmer temperatures, the button up shorts are a classic take on the utilitarian trend. I love the button details. It’s feminine and classic elements are what caught my attention. It can be dressed up with a bow blouse or casual with a tee as I did. By embracing these feminine elements of utility pieces, it helps refine my spring look. 

In the coming weeks as we head into a transitional period when the temperatures begin to warm up. While mornings will be warmer and evenings are cooler, this military inspired jacket will get me through the day. Not only is it perfect for chilling spring evenings, its unique details and military inspired style adds a statement to an overall look. Great way to stay stylish and on trend for the season.
