Oxford american writer's thesaurus:
she traded in her sporty little coupe for a utilitarian station wagon:
practical, functional, pragmatic, serviceable, useful, sensible, efficient, utility, workaday, no-frills; plain, unadorned, undecorative. ANTONYMS decorative."
So are you saying, Oxford American Writer's Thesaurus, that I should wear utilitarian-type clothing to feel very useful, practical, and efficient? Well, okay then. I believe I can work with that. I've always quite liked the worker-man look, actually. It's cool. It's spiffy. And now, it's also trending.
Now is the time to flaunt the raincoat you've had in your closet for six years. Or the Timberland boots you bought but were a little hesitant to wear. Or that camo patterned jacket that you thought was super fly but your sister passionately disagreed. Or anything in your closet that's army green or has lots of pockets. Yes - wear all these things and you'll not only look useful and practical, but also fashionable and chic!
The collage above features a very efficient, practical, serviceable jacket. It's really everything a utilitarian garment should be. Just like Thesaurus dictates. The collage below presents a no-frills, undecorative, functional green romper. It's also really everything a utilitarian item should be. And it's also just like Thesaurus describes.
Pick either of the two styles and start feeling useful today!
