The utility jacket, which we recently spotted on The City star Samantha Swetra, model Joy Bryant, and actress Rachel Bilson, is jockeying for position as the most versatile topper (over the jean jacket and blazer), and it just might earn that title. Sure, the practical piece is slouchy and super-casual, but it has the rare ability to anchor everything from ripped jeans and boots to floral dresses and Jimmy Choo pumps—just like a blazer!
