Best New Colors and Shapes at Eileen Fisher

One of my favorite stores to visit while here in Vancouver is Eileen Fisher because I love their designs and don’t have one near me in California. It’s also one of my best sellers here on the blog because their sizing is extensive, the styles are timeless, and they create sustainable fashion that stands the test of time. I stopped in for a try-on session to check out the best new colors and shapes at Eileen Fisher.

If you’re new here, welcome. A dressing room diary is when I go into a local store for a try-on session so that you can see what’s new and how it looks on a woman over 25. For reference, I am 5’4″ and weigh around 145 lbs. I have broad shoulders with straight hips, a long torso, and long arms. I often buy one size larger on top. You’ll see me try on clothes in colors and shapes that may or may not flatter me because I want you to see what’s in the stores and get some styling ideas. I tell you what sizes I am wearing to help you understand how things run. All Eileen Fisher designs are available online in a full range of sizes, from XXS to 3X, and many come in petite.

I wore my favorite knit ankle booties into the store, which wouldn’t be what I would choose to style most of these with, so take that into account.


Their washable flex ponte fabric is the stuff dreams are made of for both travel and comfy clothes that look polished. It’s a Tencel blend with plenty of spandex, so it retains its shape. This high collar open front jacket has front patch pockets and is easy to pop over so many things. It comes in 3 colors; I’m wearing the Grove.

I’m wearing it over their customer-favorite, washable flex pintuck pant that comes in 4 colors. I am a huge fan of their washable crepe pants and can say that these ones would give them a run for their money. The pintuck seam down the front gives them nice definition.

I added a slim-fitting top in one of their new bright colors for spring called Rapsody. This long-sleeved top is soft, stretchy, and a perfect layering piece to wear on its own or under many things. I’m wearing a medium, but I could have easily worn a small.


This skirt and sweater came home with me. I adore the unique shape of this skirt, and the machine-washable fabric makes it a dream to travel with and care for. It doesn’t come in petite, so I will simply fold the elastic waistband over one time, which will shorten it just enough. This is the same washable crepe as my favorite pants, which have been on constant rotation in my wardrobe for longer than I can remember and go into every suitcase I pack.

I spotted this sweater on the sale rack and could not resist it. It appears red on me, but it’s actually a raspberry/azalea color. It’s a super soft regenerative wool in a very cropped shape so I plan to simply wear a tank under it so nothing is exposed when I raise my arms. I prefer neutrals in quiet colors on me and don’t own anything red, but I think it could be time for me to experiment a bit.
