The Tiny Heart: Utility Trend: Summer to Fall Outfit


Utility Trend: Summer to Fall Outfit

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle, Vogue and Elle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirefallfashion

Now that it's September, everyone has fall fashion on their minds! I love reading up on the latest fall trends to get inspiration for the new season. So, I headed to Target for the September ELLE and InStyle magazines. I was pleased to see in ELLE that the Utility trend will still be going strong for fall (seen on the runways of Alexander Wang and Balmain). Think pockets on everything that are both stylish and functional. 

The weather might still be warm, but you can incorporate the fall trends into your outfits right now. I paired my utility jacket with a summer dress for a summer to fall transition outfit. Bonus, I already had the utility jacket in my closet. It's nice when a trend lasts more than one season!

Jacket-Old Navy (similar Pink Envelope Utility Jacket for $28), Dress-Target (similar Charlotte Russe Striped Dress for $15), Bag-Target (similar Nine West Crossbody Bag), Flats-KensieGirl (similar Report Diana Flat)

Now through September 13, buy any two fall fashion magazines (Elle, InStyle, and/or Vogue) at Target and get a $5 Target gift card!
