The utility trend includes just about anything that is olive, khaki or a brown derivative. It’s a close cousin/ basically the same thing as the safari trend, and today I’m giving it another try! (See my first post about it here.) These richly-hued neutrals are seriously calling my name, like these tie-waist pants in a unique color and a snakeskin bodysuit that is a near-perfect match. My new button sweater (below) also pairs well with these pants, and I’m excited to try more combinations including longer sleeves and potentially work-appropriate options!
