If you’re looking for a truly hard-working addition to your closet, you’ll find it difficult to beat a utility shirt. On the FW19 catwalks, several designers gave a fresh spin to this workwear classic while retaining its practicality and functionality. Isabel Marant’s brushed-wool number guarantees warmth, while its puffed sleeves add an ’80s power-dressing vibe. Stella McCartney has created a slim-fit version in slate gray that will look great in the office teamed with heels and matching tailored pants. Ganni’s tri-colored, slightly distressed denim shirt (from its collection inspired by the fearless American photojournalist Ami Vitale) and Sacai’s half-and-half style, with toggles that cinch the waist, are chic statement pieces for off-duty dressing – with absolutely zero hard work involved.
