The utility look is huge right now, and celebs have taken it to a new level by mixing it with a glam look for night time chic. Who hasn’t seen those pictures of Victoria Beckham rocking this look?! I’ve been searching for the perfect items to steal her style, and here are my ten ways to rock utility glam...

The key to utility glam is to have shorts or trousers which embody the utility trend without too much detail. These cargo shorts are perfect! The khaki colours are stunning and very identifiable, but there isn’t too much detail. A glitzy or leather black jacket, up do and jewellery will transform the look into something much more elegant and sexy. And it’s so easy! Don’t forget matching heels and a glitzy belt, too.
