The Men at London Fashion Week Have Already Found the Perfect Spring Jacket

Vogue.com

The fall 2020 menswear shows have now kicked off, and Europeโ€™s most stylish men are already providing ample inspiration with their street style. While the women of New York are still bundling up in ankle-length faux furs and mountaintop-ready puffers to combat the final months of winter, the boys of London are dressing comfortably for Britainโ€™s more moderate climes. The result? A strong case for the ultimate menswear-inspired spring outerwear piece: the utility jacket.

For those who remain unconvinced, utilitarian dressing for women has been slowly cropping up on the runways for the past few seasons, whether itโ€™s cargo-pocketed jumpsuits and trousers, or military-inspired tailoring in neutrals. From Copenhagen favorites Baum Und Pferdgarten and Ganni to New Yorkโ€™s own PSWL, plenty of these menswear-inspired pieces are now appearing in the womenโ€™s section too.

Part of the trendโ€™s appeal lies in its practicality. The larger the pockets, the less need for a purseโ€”meaning our ever-growing iPhones can sit comfortably in those jacket pockets for seasons to come. Looking ahead to the much-anticipated warmer days of spring, a London street-style-inspired utility jacket could be just what you need.
