back to basics

Part of what inspired me to start Fashion Mews was to create this ideal capsule wardrobe with the most essential basics. The items that I could wear over and over again, and mix and match to create different looks.

A minimal capsule wardrobe means less time to worry about what to wear every day, less noise and more space. I was recently introduced to EILEEN FISHER’s System, eight essential pieces for my wardrobe, which is exactly answering all my questions! Made out of 97% organic cotton (you guys know that I’m a health freak!), and quality fabrics like silk and linen, I was completely in love.

EILEEN FISHER‘s System is exactly what I needed during pre fashion week when I’m running around town, don’t want to worry about what to wear every day, but look stylish. I styled the short shell top with the straight pants over a simple white turtleneck, and all you need is a statement bag and/or shoes to elevate the whole look for day or night. Clean, sleek and simple, my kinda outfit.

In collaboration with EILEEN FISHER, all opinions are my own.

  1. The chicest look with a beautiful location to match! The pieces are gorgeous and I absolutely love how you styled them. Oh, and the Gucci’s also never disappoint 🙂 Yes to basics all day, every day!!!! xoxo

  2. I love basic and classic investment pieces and this entire look is so timeless. I have always been a fan of Eileen Fisher and the clean lines of her pieces. This black and white look is just beautiful and the backdrop is perfect to showcase this look. I definitely need to check out the System and see what pieces I can add to my closet. Thanks for letting me know about this collection! xoxo, Christine

  3. I love what you’re wearing here and how you’ve styled this (as per usual!). You always style things so spot on. I really like the sound of that wardrobe system as well, it sounds like something I actually might like to implement myself- especially because currently I have no system in place!
