Utility finds its inner polish this season, upgrading the shacket from blue-collar basic to tailored cover-up. Add a sleek midi skirt and glossy accessories, and you’ve nailed fall’s new 9-5.
Meet your new denim jacket. Long, lean and belted at the waist, the indigo shacket reflects this season’s elevated approach to the ultimate functional fabric, introducing deluxe denim into your wardrobe.
Sailing staples bring a breezy nautical flourish to utility style. Pair a sturdy canvas shacket with a Breton top and flared trousers; add deck shoes and a fishing-net bag, and you’ll look shipshape and new-season ready.
