Timberland Style: New Utility

How to Wear the New Utility trend with Timberland Boots

Timberland Whomen's Wheelwright Waterproof Hiking Boot

Trendstop first identified New Utility as a fashion trend in 2014, and has announced it as it’s Fashion Trend of the Year for 2016 .  We’re thrilled with this practical trend, which reimagines classic, rugged utility style into modern silhouettes without compromising on functionality.

New Utility is something that Timberland boots have always done well.  Their iconic yellow boot is now omnipresent, spotted on the feet of construction workers and fashion gurus alike.  Today, Timberland has taken that iconic functionality and style to the next level with heritage styles like the Women’s Wheelwright Hiker and the Men’s Willoughby boot.

Timberland Women's Wheelwright Waterproof Hiker

The Timberland Women’s Wheelwright Waterproof Hiker is one of our favorite takes on this year’s trend. Created with the same rugged construction as the original Timberland boot, the Wheelwright is luxed up for the #ModernTrail.

Timberland Whomen's Wheelwright Waterproof Hiking Boot

Feminine enough to wear with a dress and rugged enough to hit the trails, this boot is ready for anything.  Reversed suede adds a distressed aesthetic that works from countryside to city street. Waterproof construction makes this boot down for whatever.  Pair it with your favorite tench coat or military jacket.

Need some outfit inspiration? Head on over to Polyvore to see how you can wear this boot with jeans, dresses, and skirts.

Dansko Clog Materials

The Dansko Professional clog is well known for its comfort and use in the workplace.  It comes in many different styles so that you can find the perfect pair to fit your everyday lifestyle.  There are so many different leathers that it can be confusing if you’re not familiar with them!
