Thank goodness for breezy summer nights because we couldn't stand to wait for fall to have an excuse to wear LA-based denim brand Rails's personalizable jacket. Already beloved by bloggers like Something Navy's Arielle Noa Charnas and Walk in Wonderland's Sheryl Luke, the oversized, distressed style ($275) can be customized with your name, nickname, or any damned thing you please, so long as it's just 10 characters with no spaces or special characters.
The letterman-style text is available in both navy and white (as pictured in the 'gram above) and red and navy with star accents (like the lead photo here), and your own customized creation takes about three weeks from the time you order to when you can finally artfully drape it over your shoulders (as our spirit animal Dorothy Wang said on Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, you know you've made it when you can go an entire day without putting your arms through).
And considering that the example shown on Rails's site is emblazoned with the moniker "Chiara," we've got to wonder if we'll be seeing the Blonde Salad babe herself sporting one soon? The denim brand is at very least manifesting that decided made-it moment.
