In the Commandress feature Class It Up, contributor Amy (Bergsma) Schwarzenbach shares ideas for taking your wardrobe to the next level.
When it’s time to add easy wear, high-quality, and timeless pieces to your wardrobe, Eileen Fisher should be a contender as your brand of choice. Few designers equal Eileen Fisher’s understated sophistication and ability to flatter the feminine figure.
The icing on the cake is the brand’s pretty palette of colors – some bright, some neutral – from which to choose. Here’s a sample of denim, sea breeze, pale aqua and white.
The fastest and easiest way to freshen up your wardrobe is a new top. This spring, there are a number of Eileen Fisher Tops, Cardigans, and Shells that should appeal to women who eschew fads and love versatility. These tops will take you from the office to a weekend lunch to a neighborhood meeting,
My personal favorite is this Eileen Fisher Organic Linen Drape-Neck Top shown in Dewberry. The detail around the neckline is delicious. The top’s long sleeves will keep you warm, but the fine gauge knit is light enough to remain comfortable as the temperature warms up ($158.00 in multiple colors from Neiman Marcus; also available in petite).
Another flattering look is the scoop neck Eileen Fisher Organic Linen Flutter Top shown in Denim and Handloomed Color Fade Scarf shown in Darkest Seabreeze ($218 and $98 from Neiman Marcus; additional colors available).
Layering a cardigan and shell is an excellent look that goes far. I love the drapey silhouette of the ribbed knit Eileen Fisher Long Angled Linen-Blend Cardigan paired with the Sleeveless Linen-Blend Shell – both shown in Black and Dewberry below ($268 and $158 in multiple colors from Neiman Marcus; also available in plus and petite).
Finally, the knit fabric of Eileen Fisher’s 3/4 – Sleeve Organic Linen/Cotton Box Top shown in Gingerpink is just deliciously soft like your favorite pajamas – only better because you can wear it all day long ($158 from Neiman Marcus; additional colors available).
