The utilitarian trend was a definite must try as seen on the Spring/Summer runways of Stella McCartney, Chloe, and Givenchy. Army inspired garbs in a spectrum of shades and a variety of silhouettes provide endless opportunities to incorporate this look into your warm season wardrobe.

Take a cue from Gigi Hadid and try switching up the styling of these closet staples for an easy outfit refresh. We recommend breaking up a full khaki look with a plain colored crop top that hints at a bit of midriff. Roll up your pant leg to show off an of the moment mule slide that really hits on that cool downtown girl feel.
