We’ve spent the better part of the past few years streamlining our wardrobes. Sure, we still love a statement top and head-turning heel, but with a pair of vintage jeans, a clean white T-shirt, and a tailored blazer, we’re good to go. While on-duty and after-hours occasions might be times for a little black dress, tailored trousers, or a pleated miniskirt, our casual go-tos have been pretty much denim-centric for the better part of this past year. While remaining just as casual, though, it’s time to consider utility pants.
Just as classic as denim, this army-inspired bottom brings a little more dimension to a look, turning up the wow factor on that aforementioned simple white tee or even a more elegant silk blouse. Dress them up or dress them down, choose an ultra-wide-leg flare or a super-skinny style, but one thing’s for certain: This fall is going to be the season of utility pants. Shop our favorite styles out there right now, before the season officially begins.
