My favorite jacket in my closet has to be my army green utility jacket. The utility jacket is made of lightweight cotton, often confused with the anorak which are made of water-resistant fabrics. Cute cargo pockets makes the utility jacket the perfect casual spring jacket. Comfy like a zip-up hoodie yet trendy and very stylish, the utility jacket can be worn in so many styles. Here are some utility-jacket outfits from Pinterest. Puh-puh-pinteresting!
1. Casual Tee & Jeans
Style the casual tee and jeans with a stylish utility jacket. Rachel Bilson does it with a pair of boyfriend jeans and short boots. (Petite tip: roll the ends to keep the oversized jeans from overpowering your frame.)
2. Striped Dress
Layer on a casual jacket to make a cutesy striped dress casual. Keep the jacket open to show off those fun stripes! Pair rich colors like turquoise, magenta, and mustard with army green for the best color combination.
3. Cool Vest
Or try a vest and striped tee instead for a bit of a different look. Still casual but a nice option to keep your arms free and for those warm, sunny days.
4. Soft Taupe
A soft shade of taupe is a great color to wear with warmer colors like ivory and plum. Look for darker shades of taupe versus lighter shades which can wash you out.
Bold color blocking is another trend for this season that’s very cute with the utility jacket. Go for two bold colors like blue and orange, then kick it up with yellow wedge sneaks.
The utility jacket is a stylish, lightweight jacket to wear for this spring and coming summer season. The casual jacket works with many outfits like a casual tee and jeans or over a striped dress. For a different look, try the trend in a vest or different colors like taupe. What outfits will you be wearing with your utility jacket?
