I never had a utility jacket in my wardrobe until about three years ago, and now I can’t imagine how I got by without one. It’s become one of my casual Wardrobe Workhorses, and just the thing to throw on when it’s too warm for a sweater, but too cool for a tee alone. I have two actually: one that I purchased in London that’s wind and (somewhat) water-resistant, and a second lightweight cotton version from Gap, purchased a couple of years ago on sale. (Similar from Banana Republic.) I find that olive is such a plays-well-with-others option, though navy or khaki would also be versatile in most wardrobes.
And though I’ve been wearing mine casually, I’m intrigued by the idea of mixing it up with dressier pieces (inspired by the J.Crew image above) and will be experimenting.
