Cop It, Then Rock It

As the warmer months trundle along, naturally, the seasonal changes bring seasonal trends. Whether you love it or hate it, recent capsules have seen a resurgence of travel-friendly pieces such as the side bag. While helpful, we at Highsnobiety also have our eyes on something a little more locked and loaded — the utility vest.

In the past, brands like The North Face’s Urban Exploration line and Carhartt have long shown us that workwear is both fashionable and functional. Now, with the vest trend well on its way, the likes of A-COLD-WALL*, Rothco, and Rick Owens have all released their own takes on the pocket-filled vest.

More recently, the one-and-only Virgil Abloh showed a tactical vest on the Louis Vuitton runway, which will debut in the upcoming collection and surely catapult the trend from one adored by fashion’s most in the know into the mainstream.

Below, we’ve selected our favorite utility vests currently available, coming in all cuts, sizes, and neutral hues. Starting at $59 and going up to the notably more designer price of $1481, there’s something in there for everyone. Check out all our picks and cop below.

Utility vests too low-key for you, take it up a gear with our seven favorite chest rigs.
