Eileen Fisher sweaters

The linen blend sweater with a v-neck is a great addition to a fall or winter wardrobe.

The fabric is not too thick so it can be worn layered over one of the dresses for a casual update. The merino wool tunic sweater has a subtle ribbing which enhances a vertical line and visually lengthens the body.

Seasonless and multi-occasion Eileen Fisher dresses

One of the most versatile pieces you can have in your capsule wardrobe is a dress in neutral or flattering bold hue that does wonders for your body shape.

This is the case with these two Eileen Fisher dresses that can go from day to evening and colder to warmer temperatures with ease.

The great thing about Eileen Fisher dresses is not only are they very well made, but they are a blank canvas. You can wear the same dress in so many different ways either for day or night, for summer or for winter.

You could add a belt, a scarf, some statement jewelry, sneakers or heels and create a huge variety of different outfits.

Eileen Fisher dresses work for any body shape and they also be a fantastic option if you are looking to hide a belly.

Eileen Fisher clothing that is flattering and elongating

As mentioned above, Eileen Fisher pieces coordinate quite well with one another, especially when it comes to layering pieces for an elongating effect.

You could layer the asymmetrical top over a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, and it’s hard to think of an outfit that you couldn’t wear with the linen cardigan.

Multiple looks from a few pieces

In the pictures below you see how to get different looks with the sheer silk top and black tank top. The silk tank top can be worn alone over a pair of jeans, which gives it more of a classic and relaxed look.

You can also layer this sheer boxy top over the silk tank top with any light-colored ankle pants. The varying lengths and contrasts in color give the minimalist look more of an edge.

Texture in Eileen Fisher coats

Eileen Fisher’s pieces are very much inspired by natural textures and elements.

As you can see below, both style of jackets have a very earthy and raw appearance that is very much in line with the ethos of the Eileen Fisher brand.

The texture of both jackets adds an extra depth to the looks and takes what could be very basic looks to a new level.

Eileen Fisher tunic

A cornerstone of Eileen Fisher are the dresses.

These dresses can be worn in so many ways. Wear them casual, dressy, alone or as a tunic over a pair of fitted or wide legged pants.

This slim stretch dress is a great option to build a capsule wardrobe around. The fabric works for any season, wear alone or layer it underneath a long jacket.

A tunic shirt is a wonderful way to add touches to your wardrobe. This tunic works well layered over trousers or skirt. Try layering it over these ankle pants.

A jumpsuit can be worn a hundred different ways, and is a great option if you don’t want to think about putting separates together to create an outfit.

You could wear casually with sneakers or sandals. Or, you could dress up these pieces with heels and a jacket.

Eileen Fisher jackets

Eileen Fisher is a master at the kimono or duster jacket.

Add a long jacquard jacket in a neutral shade or select a notched collar textured jacket in a rich cassis tone to add a pop of color to a capsule wardrobe.

Eileen Fisher shoes and Eileen Fisher boots

Just like the rest of the brand, Eileen Fisher’s shoes and boots are crafted from the highest quality materials.

You can opt for a slingback pump for casual sophistication. A bootie in classic black works well with either dresses or pants.

Eileen Fisher scarves

A scarf is always a good way to add some nonchalant style to your outfits.

You could wear a lightweight linen wrap as a vacation cover-up, or add a scarf to a moto jacket and jeans to add some pizzazz to an otherwise simple outfit.

Eileen Fisher petites and Eileen Fisher plus size

One of the things I love about Eileen Fisher, as well as the quality and design, of course, is the inclusiveness.

Not only is there a range of Eileen Fisher petites, and of Eileen Fisher plus size pieces, but because many of the pieces are draped, loose-fitting or tunic styles, they are flattering for so many women of all sizes.

Eileen Fisher has so many great options to really add drama and sophistication to your wardrobe. I had a hard time selecting just a few items to feature because the line has so many gorgeous pieces!
