The belted cargo jacket will be one of spring’s hottest trends
With spring right around the corner, the weather is beginning to slowly warm up. The change in temperature means it’s time to start looking at light weight, yet stylish jackets. Jackets that serve has great windbreakers, and/or can be worn as indoor-wear to a variety of events including work.
If you want to know what will be on-trend for the new season, look to the fashions that were featured during the previous fashion week. Fashion week showcases the trends for the upcoming season. When approaching the new seasons, magazines start to feature these looks. The looks featured in these publications are then translated into everyday wear. A look/trend that caught my attention, and that I continue to notice on the pages of every major magazine is the utility trend. Safari or cargo belted jackets are major features of this trend, and are everywhere.
Scrolling through a number of online retail websites, I noticed quite a few brands have already started introducing the utility trend to their assortment. There are quite a number of fashionista’s that also agree with my style prediction. Style stars and fashion editors alike are already sporting cargo jackets. The great thing about this style of jacket is that, not only is it on trend for the new season, but it is also a classic silhouette. Safari jackets are quite classic, and tend to make an appearance every spring season.
From Casual to chic
To give your Safari jacket a stylish upgrade, simply pair the jacket with a polished, and detailed bottom. By simply pairing my jacket with a snakeskin leather skirt, I instantly transform the appeal of the jacket, making it ultra chic. To elevate, and complement the Safari vibe of the jacket I paired my snakeskin skirt with snakeskin boots. This outfit is an indicator that you can pair snakeskin on snakeskin.

What to pair your belted cargo jacket
You don’t have to pair your cargo belted jacket with a leather skirt to look chic. You just have to pair it with bottoms that are already classic. I could pair the same jacket with a pair of wide leg dress-pants to achieve the same effect. I could also pair the jacket with a pair of jeans, and introduce a classic pair of pumps to also create a chic appeal. As long as one item of your bottoms are classic, your look will become chic.
