We’ve seen it all from trench coats to cargo pants to boiler suits to a whole lot of khaki. The utilitarian trend has been taking over the runway and high street, and these silhouettes don’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon! With zips, buckles, lace-ups, drawstrings and oversized pockets, designers have added a sophisticated edge on what previously bordered on the side of grunge.
A favourite member of the utilitarian family is the chunky boot where fashion meets functionality. Apart from being a stylish standout in any outfit, chunky soled boots are comfortable and practical with their durable appeal. These Alexander McQueen beauties will toughen up any outfit with their lace-up look and silver buckles that can be worn with anything from skirts to tailored trousers, making them a versatile wardrobe staple.
