Happy Friday, and cheers to the weekend! 🥂 Today I’m styling utility jogger pants for a casual spring travel outfit or an off-duty weekend look.
Level 99 utility pants // ATM tee (option) // Kut from the Kloth utility shirt jacket (also at Zappo’s) // P448 sneakers (option) // sunglasses (option) // silver hoops // cuff bracelet // similar pendant
When I put this look together, my first thought was, this would be perfect for wearing on the plane to Florida! I like to be comfortable when I travel, but I still want to look polished and put-together.
These utility jogger pants from Evereve are the perfect solution. The fabric is 53% cotton, 38% viscose, 7% elasterell, 2% spandex; so they feel like you’re wearing joggers, but they look like pants.
They have a 27″ inseam, which hits me about an inch above the ankle bone, and they have an elasticized banded hem with the side zip. I didn’t feel the need to unzip them — they’re not super tight — but you could if you want a straighter silhouette.
The have rear patch pockets, which I always find more flattering than the flap pockets that often come on utility pants, or traditional welt pockets that tend to bunch up inside and look bulky.
And the front patch pockets give a nod to the utility trend, but I appreciate that there are no flap pockets lower on the thighs. All of these features work together to give these jogger pants a sleek, streamlined silhouette.
Size-wise, these pants run a bit large. I have the 28, but I’ve ordered the 27 to compare. I don’t really want them to be any tighter in the legs, but the waist is kind of loose, and they seem like they could stretch out a bit with wear. I may need to wear a belt.
There are so many options for styling these pants. Olive green is such a versatile color. It pairs well with denim as well as neutrals like grey, white, navy, and black; and it also works well with blush pink, coral, and rust.

This is the ATM Schoolboy v-neck tee that I’ve been wearing so much lately. I sized up to a medium in this tee.
It has such a flattering shape to the v-neckline, and I love the slub cotton fabric. It’s not thin enough to be see-through, but it has that lightweight linen look for spring/summer.
I almost wore my denim jacket, but at the last minute, I decided to add a black jacket on top.
You may remember this Kut from the Kloth utility shirt jacket from this post. I love it with the denim and grey, but I think the combination of black jacket with the crisp white tee and olive pants keeps this casual look elevated and chic.
This jacket is made of a lightweight tencel fabric, so it’s perfect for spring, and it has such nice details. I love the silver accents and the toggle waist.
And I did the “editor’s cuff” with my sleeves, which makes them look a little more intentional than a simple roll cuff. To do that, you just fold the sleeve halfway up the arm so the cuff is right above the elbow.
Then roll the bottom of the sleeve up the arm one or two times (I just do one) and gently pull the cuff so it peeks out on on top the way you want it. Push the sleeve up to the place you want it to stay, and you’re good to go! The idea is to look slightly undone, so don’t overthink it.
I’m always asked about zipping a jacket and if it’s necessary for a jacket to zip if you don’t intend to wear it that way. It doesn’t really matter, but this one does zip up comfortably in my usual size small. You can always loosen the toggle drawstring at the hem for a little more wiggle room.
My P448 low-top sneakers are definitely a splurge, but they’re made in Italy of premium materials, and the comfort is out of this world. They are so cushy and soft inside, and even have padding on the tongue.
Plus, I love the details. The suede vamp and the laces are a light grey, which creates a subtle contrast against the white leather, and the leopard print tab at the back and the perforated P448 logo in the side add interest while keeping them neutral.
I’m usually and 8 or 8.5 in sneakers, and I went with the size 39 in these. That’s the equivalent of a U.S. 8.5 – 9, so if in doubt, I recommend sizing up.
Lots of sneaker brands make a similar look for less — I really like these Vintage Havanas in the Gold Snake, and the Sam Edelman Aubrie sneaker is a popular dupe for the popular Golden Goose (be warned — it looks dirtier on top than it might appear in the picture).
Flip flops or sandals will also work well with this outfit when it warms up, or a canvas sneaker would also be a good choice. And I can swap out the black utility jacket for my denim jacket, and sub a graphic tee for the white v-neck to get a totally different look.
So yeah, in my opinion, this is the perfect casual travel outfit. It’s also a great look for running errands or going to appointments, and whatever else you might have going on during the day.
