minimalist shopping: eileen fisher

Eileen Fisher is a well executed minimalist clothing brand and store. The vision has been consistent in its desire to make dressing easy for women through establishing a system of basics that are easily mixed and matched. These foundation pieces, like a silky camisole, are offered each season with slight design variations and proportion play to keep items fresh and modern. I particularly enjoy their seasonal planners. These documents show you the entire season's offerings and release months for the individual pieces. I find it helpful in wardrobe planning, style direction, and budgeting.

Aside from the system dressing and wardrobe planning appeal for the minimalist, the clothing is minimal in its design. The pieces are simple, linear, in a (mostly) neutral color palette, and made from comfortable fabrics like silk and jersey. Here are some looks from a recent feature on the website.
