Rails Britt Button Down08/29/2015 | Written by Sara Schreiber
A Pretty Plaid for Anywhere
This shirt reminds me of a confident “city girl” who always keeps her country roots close to her heart. She’s full of life, living it up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and riding the L Train into Manhattan every morning with her fellow stylists, bloggers, researchers, call center mavens and marketers. A carload of folks doing the daily grind and, every now and then, making dreams come true. The daytime is all business and street style. But when she returns home in the evening the laptop hits the floor. This girl rolls up her sleeves and goes to town making a London Broil and a batch of Guinness cupcakes for her roommates. She strategizes which weekend, exactly, she’ll pack up her pickup with pup Nigel and head back to her chestnut Appaloosa and chicken coop on a little patch of land in Somewhere, Virginia.
When you spy this extra sweet Rails Britt Button Down Shirt, in a myriad of pretty color combinations (we’re partial to the Pink/Marine) and 100% Rayon, your first instinct may be “toss it on over cutoffs and grab the hobo bag”. That works. Of course it does. But now look a little closer: this easygoing button-up with double chest pockets will go almost anywhere you go. The tender, rolled short-sleeve adds panache (and we love what a good cap sleeve does to our arms!) while the semi-relaxed fit paints a sophisticated silhouette for an ensemble that can traverse urban boulevards or down-home country lanes.
Lifestyle brand Rails Clothing has made the radar of fashion bloggers and celebrities for years now. Mila Kunis wore the Rails Britt Shirt when she had little Wyatt Isabelle in utero. And Kourtney K. (a devoted fan of Los Angeles native Jeff Abrams and his tailored designs) sported the Britt while filming on Keeping Up.
Fashion bloggers seem to be in love with the easy wearability of Rails and this sinfully soft topper in particular. Throw on an A-line skirt over the top of the Britt, step into some short suede booties, and don your aviators and fave fall bag ala Arielle Nachmani of the haute blog Something Navy.
This is one of those pieces that manages to be classic and comfortable. A timeless top that feels good to put on over and over … and over again. Once again, wearable proof that a little simplicity can feel so rich.
