This Outfit Convinced Us to Try the Utility Trend

For the first season in recent memory, fashion's top Spring trends are heavily favoring function before fashion, and we for one could not be more excited. Take for example the utilitarian trend, featuring everything from updated trench coats to chunky boots, all in earthy hues. While some of the standout pieces from the trend (hello, boiler suits) might be a bit difficult to pull off, ShopStyle Contributing Editor Marcy Callahan has convinced us that we can attempt the trend with a chic pair of cargo pants.

Just as classic as denim, these army-inspired bottoms bring an exciting change to your usual wardrobe. This assortment of chic cargo pants can dressed down with a simple white tee or dressed up with an elegant silk blouse. From wide leg flares to skinny pant styles, Spring is going to be the season of cargo pants.
