Trends come and go in the fashion world, but there are some that seem to return season after season and the utility trend is one of them. The traditional styles are continually being updated and elevated, and this season, you’ll find utility pieces in an array of fresh colours and done in more refined fabrics and silhouettes.Stylist Erica Wark highlights some of her favourite ways to rock the utility trend this season.

LOOK 1: THE CARGO PANT

Although just as comfortable, this is a more tailored take on the traditional cargo pant that’s easily dressed up or down.GAP cargo pant | ZARA top | Aritzia cropped jacket | Opelle earrings | Massimo Dutti bag | L'intervalle sandal

LOOK 2: THE UTILITY SKIRT

On top of the amazing burnt orange colour, the tortoise shell detail on both the belt and buttons further elevate this skirt for the season.Banana Republic utility skirt | Topshop, Hudson's Bay top | ZARA sunglasses | Opelle earrings | ZARA mini bag | L'intervalle sandal

LOOK 3: THE UTILITY JUMPSUIT

The boiler suit is a super versatile utility trend staple. Wear with a casual canvas belt and sneakers for day, and simply swap out for a wide leather belt and heels for night.Topshop, Hudson's Bay jumpsuit | ZARA belt | Sunbalm necklace | Rok Cork bucket bag | ZARA square toe sandal

LOOK 4: THE ELEVATED CARGO PANT

To elevate your classic cargo pant, opt for a silk or silk-inspired fabric. The sheen and flow of the fabric both immediately take the pant up a notch.Marciano cargo pant | Guess top | Opelle earrings | Topshop, Hudson's Bay shoulder bag | ZARA mesh sandal[video_embed id='1974045']Chris Cuomo accidently bares it all on his wife’s Instagram live[/video_embed]
