The Utility Fashion Trend

Part of my daily routine is to sift through all of the new arrivals for major fashion websites. I had been noticing a rise in “mechanic jumpsuity” looking items and I was thinking to myself… I like this trend. I always loved wearing dickies pants to my roller hockey practices. They were comfortable and practical; and there was definitely a look to it – a tight tank top with baggy dickies pants and skates. It looked cool. Anyhoo, I was glad to stumble upon ASOS’ newsletter announcing the Utility trend (that definitely sounds more chic that mechanic jumpsuity). Below is a round up of my top picks from the latest Utility trend.

Retro Nautical Swimsuits

This summer retro swimsuits with a nautical air are in! I absolutely love these swimsuits with navy stripes. If you are looking for the perfect gift for a friend – with a summer birthday – these are a great option. On the other hand, summer has arrived and you might be looking for a cute swimsuit for yourself. I know I am. This year I plan to keep my promise to go to the beach at least every couple of weeks. It’s a shame to live in Miami and never enjoy the amazing beaches we have. How about you? Any plans to leave the bat cave this summer? 1. Contrast Panel Belted Bandeau Swimsuit by ASOS, 2. Colorblock Short-sleeve Tank Swimsuit by J.Crew, 3. Mouille Santorini One Piece Swimsuit
