Dressing Room Diaries Early Summer at Eileen Fisher

Dressing Room Diaries Early Summer at Eileen Fisher

I walked into a joyous riot of color at my local Eileen Fisher store. It was bustling with activity, and the dressing rooms were full. I’ve been shopping at Eileen Fisher for over 25 years, and the more things change, the more they stay the same. She still makes the same timeless shapes in fabulous fabrics…and now in increasingly gorgeous colors. This was a small try-on of the early summer collection, and I’ll head back for an update soon.

THE WEIRD COLORS YOU SEE ON THE FRONT OF THIS SWEATER IS ACTUALLY ON THE MIRROR

dressing room diary is when I go into a local store for a try-on session to show you what’s new and how it looks on a woman over 25. For reference, I am 5’4″ and weigh around 147 lbs. I have broad shoulders, straight hips, a long torso, and long arms. I often buy one size larger on top. I mention what size I’m wearing to help you understand how things run. Eileen Fisher designs are available online in a full range of sizes, from XXS to 3X, and most are now available in petite. Her pieces run large, so I always usually size down. I love that most of her fabrics are organic, and I have high regard for their sustainable practices and B-Corp rating.

PERUVIAN ORGANIC COTTON V-NECK LONG TOP size XS / COTTON BLEND WIDE-LEG PONTE PANT size PS

I’m a big fan of Eileen’s Bone shade because it seems to match my hair so well. I have this washed silk blouse in Bone, and love it’s soft appearance. It pairs well with white, gray, taupe, blue, black…just about any other color in my wardrobe. This long organic cotton sweater has high side slits that come almost to the waist, allowing you to get into those pockets I love :). I think this would be fabuous over their washable crepe pants.

I’m wearing it over these wide leg cotton blend pants that have a beautiful feel and are opaque. So many white pants have a sheer quality, so I like to call out the ones that don’t. They’re ponte fabric that feels substantial but wil be cool in the warm weather. They also come in black.

ORGANIC COTTON VOILE BAND COLLAR SHIRT size XS / ORGANIC COTTON POPLIN WIDE LEG PANTS size XS

These cotton poplin pants are sooo fun! These are slim through the hips then widen to a wide leg. They’re a pull-on style with slash pockets. These also come in soft pale gray. The poplin is airy any floaty which would be very cool in the summer. I also spotted this poplin skirt pant which is amazing!

The cotton voile shirt is buttery soft with a light puckery weave and a lovely drape. It’s a classic shape that fits close to the shoulders and is slightly wider at the hem. It also comes in white which is very pretty.

ORGANIC COTTON GAUZE STRAIGHT LEG PANT size PS / WASHED ORGANIC LINEN SHIRTDRESS size XS / LINEN TEE size S

Eileen is excelling at great fabrics this season, and her lofty cotton gauze is no exception. These gauze pants have a classic straight leg and pull-on style that are as comfy as your PJ’s. They also come in white and a pale, soft gray called Nimbus, which is lovely for summer. These have a full-length leg, YAY, so the petite is perfect for me with a 27.5″ inseam.

I’m wearing them with a simple linen tee, and this washed linen shirtdress. The shirtdress is fitted through the shoulders with high slits at the side. The slits may make this more open than some ladies like for a dress, so it’s perfect to layer. It also comes in Coriander green.

Are you wearing more color this summer?
