Every fall, a new color or two looks exciting but leaves you wondering if or how you can wear it. Today I’m pleased to be partnering with Nordstrom to talk about an unusual new hue in their Eileen Fisher Collection and how it can work for you.
Nordstrom has one of Eileen Fisher’s best collections this season. Not only are there some gorgeous, casually chic pieces, but the colors are very fashion-forward.
This is what I’m talking about. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a color like this!
The golden green tones in my pretty Herringbone scarf are right on trend. Pantone (the world leader in color) has identified a couple of shades within this color family: Golden Curry – an exotic, spicy yellow, and Golden Olive- a sturdy, yellow-green solid. Looking at their color chips, this scarf is a little more curry than Olive, but it’s close. See here…
I’ve always enjoyed Eileen Fisher scarves because they can magically transform an outfit. When I first spotted this vibrant Eileen Fisher scarf at Nordstrom, I was excited to try it.
I always find that one of the best ways to test out a new color you’re unsure of is with a scarf. Sometimes it takes a while to get used to painting, and an accessory like a scarf is an excellent way to build up your color confidence.
You may also like a specific color, but wearing too much of it doesn’t work well for you. For example, it may wash you out or be too overpowering. Often, if you mix it with another color (like this gorgeous Spruce Green sweater), it can look even better than wearing the paint alone.
This combo of the luxurious, dark green Eileen Fisher cashmere sweater and the Curry Wool Scarf is cozy but exciting. The scarf gives the dark top a great burst of energy.
I’m wearing my sweater and scarf with a pair of the most fantastic Eileen Fisher Ponte Pants. The cut is superb, and they are so soft, stretchy, and comfy! Some of you have told me you like slim pants but don’t want them tight at the ankles. This pull-on style lies close to your body but is a straight cut, not skinny at the ankle, which is lovely and often hard to find.
I’ve become a sneaker’s gal. Every day, in real life,e I find myself wearing cute statement sneakers more and more. They’re easy to slip on when you go to the mall or do a few errands. I’m into comfort these days, but I want my shoes to be cute and sporty. These Halogen black suede statement sneakers Nordstrom’s house brand) are perfect for that.
O.k., let’s get back to that scarf for a moment. Here’s a close-up look at this beautiful plaid scarf and all the subtle texture, pattern, and color play.
You also get a better view of the exciting crisscross ribbing on my cashmere sweater. You can tell this whole outfit is QUALITY – which is what Eileen Fisher is all about. I appreciate that Nordstrom always has such a good selection in stock. Eileen Fisher’s clothing looks beautiful and always feels so soft and luxurious.
Little details like the slits at the sides of my sweater kick the outfit up a notch too!
I just wanted to mention my bag, in case you were wondering about it. It’s from Tory Burch at Nordstrom. It’s another simple, understated piece of this fabulous ensemble. Scrolling back a few photos, you will see how easy and elegant it looks.
So here’s the recipe for trying a new color. First, visit Eileen Fisher at Nordstrom and check out all the fantastic new pieces in many beautiful, fashion-forward hues. If you don’t want to go crazy with an untested new color ( like curry), try it in small doses combined with a quieter, darker color (like spruce green).
Stay tuned for those who say the heck with that, and you’re ready to dive right in and wear this color full-out. On Tuesday, I will show you another Eileen Fisher greeny-gold piece from Nordstrom that is much more of a statement-maker. See you then!
