Why the Name Field Trip?
I love the sense of wonderment that these two words conjure up. Remember those field trips as a kid—the anticipation of the unknown, an openness to receive and experience whatever the day will hold, and the camaraderie of a shared experience was magical. For me and for many women I know, it still is. That is who I am making clothes for. Women who are curious, engaged with, and excited about life, who want to approach every day as a field trip whether they are going to Portugal or the pharmacy.
So what is the proper clothing for the field trip of busy adulthood?
As a kid, we received a list of "recommended clothing" for these field trips. This list was my first insight into how my attire could embolden my confidence for the day’s adventure. With the proper clothing, I felt I could handle anything a field trip could throw at me.
Back then, this clothing simply needed to stand up to the elements and keep you comfortable. But as a grown woman, I need more than comfort and functionality (i.e. athleisure wear) to feel confident. I want to look appropriate—and feelbeautiful—throughout a day that might alternate between being a carpool driver, business owner, last-minute lunch date, community volunteer, evening meal chef, amateur therapist, sports fan, and bedtime story reader.
Our shirts are just this—a beautiful, grown-up version of those confidence-inspiring childhood field trip uniforms. I want curious, engaged women “going farther into the world” to have clothing that supports all the adventures of their day.
Clothing that goes further so women can go farther.
Every style is born from a real-life need in our own closets. But we don't stop there—it has to meet five criteria before it passes the test to become a Field Trip shirt.
Who has time for multiple outfit changes? We focus on five points of fit so you can stretch, bend, and reach all day with ease.
We've become known for our fabric. That's because we start with the most renowned mills in Europe, then really get picky.
Each of our shirts is made in the U.S. by craftspeople experienced in high-end ready to wear lines. Their skills ensure every garment fits well and is made to last.
