Absolutely Nothing. “Utility” has its purpose.
Mostly if something is considered worthy of the word “utility” I am not enchanted.
Except when it comes to “utility” jackets. This particular coat answers to a variety of names but today I’m calling mine “utility”.
They must be my favourite style of jacket since, well; it is so far back I cannot even remember when I bought my first. It’s March and I am tired of the puffers, parkas and woollen numbers, I need a change of coat this weekend. Seriously, I’m so over my heavier jackets it must mean spring is on the way.
I’m partial to khaki – it’s a great neutral and works well on most colourings – and it is flattering. If black were superseded then khaki would be the new black. It’s that utilitarian and practical. Yes, it works with black, with denim and beautifully with pastels.
But how good does it look with white?
I’m thinking white jeans, a white cashmere sweater and this utility jacket are working well; wear sneakers, flats or booties even a kitten heel would work.
It’s my kind of outfit. xv
