The many advantages of Eileen Fisher clothing

One of the wonderful things about Eileen Fisher is the flexibility of the collection. Every item mixes and matches together to create a truly effortless wardrobe.

And since the clothing is so well made, you’ll keep these essentials in your wardrobe for years to come. 

Eileen Fisher truly is a capsule wardrobe dream come true!

This season features textured silky tops which would look great dressed up, or worn with jeans, along with easy-to-wear tunic dresses, asymmetrical tops and whimsical, sheer organza jackets.

Here are some of my favorite picks from the new Eileen Fisher collection. Don’t forget to let me know in the comments below which your favorites are!

Add instant drama with this silk top. The length works well with either leggings or cropped ankle pants or paired with a slim pencil skirt. Add a lightweight stripe silk blouse to add subtle pattern to a monochromatic look.

The linen blend boxy top with a jewel 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 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 the silk top over the tank top with any light-colored linen 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.

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 dress is a wonderful way to add touches to your wardrobe. This dress works well layered over trousers or skirt. Try layering it over these stretch leggings.

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.

The collection has so many pants to choose from.

Select one of the basic ponte knit skinny pants to layer underneath any of their dresses, or opt for one of the new relaxed silhouette in a lantern twill ankle pants and pair with a long cardigan.

Eileen Fisher jeans

As well as a good range of seasonless pants, you will find quality jeans options at Eileen Fisher which can be staples of your closet for years to come.

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.

Choose a slingback pump for casual sophistication. A bootie with a crossover detail in black works well with either dresses or pants. Choose a dramatic, curvy bootie to add some edge. Add some on trend details with an exaggerated block heel pump in suede.

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!

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.

There are so many (too many) fantastic pieces. I can’t decide which is my “main” favourite – perhaps the angled white top and the grey kimono jacket.

I am a great fan of Eileen Fisher clothes after I bought two items in their Vancouver shop. Fortunately they are not in The Netherlands. And I don’t order from the USA. Soo good for my bank account…

Thank you for this posting. I recently discovered Eileen Fisher and her elegant outfits. It is important to know that size wise runs large and is good to order a size down. The quality is good and the outfits very versatile because of their classic style.

While Eileen Fisher does not really fit into my personal style, I am interested in their effort to recycle clothing. I think it is not advertised a lot in order to control volume, but they offer a $5 coupon for every Eileen Fisher garment returned, regardless of condition. Those are repaired and resold, or remade into other things when possible.

Being a savvy thrift shopper, occasionally I can find Eileen Fisher pieces at high end downsizing sales and thrift stores!

As a member of the 40 Plus Style Club I have commented several times on my lack of interest in the EF brand, especially because I am petite size and wide, loose, drapey clothing is not so flattering on me. I recently purchased a number of petite pieces at an Eileen Fisher outlet store that were deeply discounted. I was able to try things on and find some styles that worked. Sizing is inconsistent though so I will not order on line. Example a sweater and pants were xs/petite, denim jacket was xl/petite, a tee shirt and long sweater were M/petite. The denim jacket was originally $218 US but I bought if for $69 with an addition 40% off so if you like EF keep an eye out for an outlet store near you!

I live in Washington DC and have an Eileen Fisher store within walking distance. I love so many of their pieces, and luckily for me, am able to find everything I covet on eBay. I do buy the scarves and knit pieces new b/c I am picky about how these are cared for — but otherwise, eBay makes the clothing affordable for daily wear.
