One of the trends that I've seem come into fruition from Fall 2013's fashion week is the utility jacket. With summer, and warmer weather, taking it's sweet time this jacket is the perfect in between piece. What I love most about this jacket is that it truly looks like it's a part of your outfit and not just something you've thrown on as a last minute thought. It's also one of the most versatile jacket's I've seen as it can convey completely different look depending on how you wear it. I'm personally loving the unexpected chic look with a printed dress or super casual with a white blouse and skinny jeans. Have you embraced the utility jacket trend? I'm hesitant to keep calling it a trend and consider the jacket a staple wardrobe piece!
