Is it just me, or do Eileen Fisher designs seem to be getting better with each season? I'd been won over a couple years ago by the knit jersey tops, but found many of the other pieces to be a bit drab or boxy and not really office appropriate. But lately I've been finding more basics and accent pieces like cardigans and knit jackets that are flattering, comfortable, and and fit readily into a business casual ensemble. The current collection offers many items in lovely shades of grey, including a steel grey called "graphite" that's a fabulous neutral and softer alternative to black.
To my eye, some of these looks channel a bit of that Left Bank vibe...
There's one jacket in particular in this month's collection that has piqued my interest. It's a knit tuxedo-style jacket with a sheer silk collar which might be a great travel piece to dress up a pair of knit pants or pencil skirt.
Eileen Fisher washable knit jacket in stretch crepe, $228. It wasn't available in my local store, but I have one on order and will report back.
You can see the entire Eileen Fisher Spring preview here. And check out Sal's (Already Pretty) preview of the Fall Collection in their New York showroom. Some of those colors have me drooling!
Edited to add: Those of you looking for a tall length pant, I did find one on the website, here.
