As I sort through my closet clutter this spring making my piles of “keep” and “donate”, it is remarkably apparent that Eileen Fisher is a closet-keeper-winner year after year.

I know the Eileen Fisher fans out there already appreciate this…her pieces truly are the ultimate timeless closet staple.

Beautifully made, Eileen Fisher pieces hold up well, add a classic elegance to any outfit, and survive my closet decluttering cuts over and over again.

For those of you shopping specifically for bold fashion forward finds for spring, I recognize you aren’t necessarily going to gravitate toward Eileen Fisher. She definitely doesn’t play in the same arena as the fast fashion brands that churn out trend-setting styles every single week.

That is precisely one of the primary reasons, however, her pieces stick around so long in my closet! Her high quality sweaters and tops are forever-closet “gold!”


Eileen Fisher For Spring: An Easy Modern Outfit Formula

Okay…I’ll admit there’s one caveat. I’ve found the key, for me, is not wearing head-to-toe Eileen Fisher. Some people can pull it off, but I usually can’t. So instead, I choose just one or maybe two of Eileen Fisher’s minimalist pieces and then mix them up with modern on-trend jeans and cool accessories.

This spring, I’ve been playing around a ton with how to wear light wash wide leg denim. This style is everywhere. And since I’m a huge fan of wide leg denim, I’m an easy sell on wearing a light wash variety.

I’ve found that pairing this type of denim with an Eileen Fisher high quality top, and then adding in your favorite on-trend black shoes and an interesting bag is ridiculously easy and feels fresh for spring.

I knew I had to have this sweater in my closet as soon as I saw it. Oversized with lots of movement, it works beautifully over a swim top for vacation or over any cami or tank for everyday wear. Because of the more conservative shape and length, I’m also comfortable wearing it over a crop cami (or even a pretty bralette for evening).

I’ve tried other sweaters that are similar in style, but Eileen Fisher’s is definitely a step above (or even two or three steps above) the others in terms of feel of the fabric, quality, and design. It definitely feels like a piece that will happily take its place next to my other Eileen Fisher gems in my forever-closet.

When it comes to a classic Eileen Fisher top or sweater, this one is pretty fabulous. It comes in black, but I love this particular shade of bone for spring. It reads white, but not stark white (which I find sometimes hard to wear).

The cotton/cashmere blend is ultra soft, which makes it a pleasure to wear. And the texture is interesting and luxe, but can be styled just like any easy white tank.

Add in a fabulous denim bag (this one is SO fun!) and your favorite black sandals, sneaks, or ballet flats, and you’re set.
