I picked up Eileen Fisher’s boxy cropped sweater a few weeks ago, and it’s already made its way onto my list of most-beloved. Like other Eileen Fisher pieces, it’s sustainably made (from a blend of organic cotton & linen yarns) and looks much better on than it does in stock photos. Unlike other Eileen Fisher pieces, it happens to be 40% off(!!) at Nordstrom, so if you are tempted…the time is now.
5 Outfit Ideas Featuring The Eileen Fisher Boxy Crop Sweater
The sweater is thick but airy, so it’s been comfortable even on those really warm fall days. That said, it has enough heft to transition effortlessly into colder weather, and I plan to layer it over long-sleeve tees or turtlenecks this winter. It also has — per usual — gorgeous drape, and looks seriously luxe in person. It’s the kind of piece I keep getting compliments on. (Linzi has already ordered it, but let’s just be clear that I WAS FIRST. LINZ.)
Here are a few of the ways I’ve been wearing this sweater over the last few weeks — it’s such a good one, you guys. I can’t recommend it enough.

1. My Usual Outfit: Levi’s 501s, Vans, Straw Bag
The first test of any top is whether or not it works with my most-worn pieces. And yes. Yes it does.

2. What I Wore To Coffee On That One Rainy Day
I had coffee with a friend last week, and — of course — it rained. Not a downpour, thank goodness, so we were still able to sit outside under an umbrella. I paired the EF sweater with another new favorite of mine, these nylon pants from NINOBrand. These pants have a genius zip-off bottom, making them the perfect cropped length with sneakers, or I can wear them with heeled boots. I plan to layer them over fuzzy leggings (and add winter boots) for jaunts to the playground this winter — they’re the ultimate playground pants. They’re pricey (but also sustainably-made, slow-fashion pants from a local designer). I’ve been wearing them a ton — one of my very fav purchase from NINOBrand (and more on styling them, later).

3. With Leggings…Because, Life
Truth be told, I don’t shower nearly as often (or as soon after a workout) as I’d like. Instead, I’ve just been popping this sweater on over top of my workout clothes and going about my day.

4. The Outfit I Planned To Wear Out To Dinner
It was a hot day, I swear. Fall is so weird.

5. The Outfit I Actually Wore Out To Dinner
After walking outside, turning around, and going back upstairs to change…this is what I ended up actually wearing. (That faux-fur is deliciously warm — so good for these outside dining nights.)

Highly recommend, Gang. It’s a good one.
This one’s for the pinners…
Honestly, you made your case with the first picture. That sweater is gorgeous! Already added to my bag! Thanks for the heads up! Love it!
I bought the cream one this summer after your rec, and it is true. Beautiful drape. I would never have thought it was so good based on stock photos. Now do I need the black???? You styled it so good!
You DO. The black sweater is actually different from the cream one – it’s more sweatery, less net-y. The cream one is more of a warm-weather piece, while this one is much more transitional. I love both. 🙂
What size are you wearing? The sizing options are different than XS/S. Nordstrom has sizes listed as XXS/XS or S/M? Thanks!
Sorry about that! I have the XXS/XS.
I have and love this one!! Best purchase this season.
Do you have a direct link for the NINO nylon pants? I am not finding them and *love*
