Trend: Utility

The utilitarian trend has been around for decades, by incorporating tough work wear into everyday wardrobes. This trend is still super relevant, because it is so easy to wear. Adding a structured piece like a camouflage jacket will make a feminine look instantly cooler. As an added plus, you can wear this trend in any season because of its variety. Now designers are fueling the trend with quilted bomber jackets, studs, combat boots and so much more. - Maddie

BDG Quilted Bomber Jacket
Instead of going for another camouflage jacket, try olive army green by itself in the form of this silky bomber jacket. Also really into that lime green zipper—it's all about the little things when it comes to my clothes.
