A great-shaped knit dress is very, very friendly to the over-40 woman. It skims over the body and is seamed to help define curves where you want them. The fabric is heavy enough to not cling, just glide. Its clean statement doesn't need much help in the accessories department, because it's so sure of itself. But it is fun to accessorize too, with jackets, boleros, scarves, cardis, and of course, any jewelry piece you fancy.
This charcoal dress is actually my first Eileen Fisher piece, and I'm in love. I bought it in NYC at Buffalo Exchange for only $25, so that is part of the love story. I can't say enough about the quality and fit of this dress, so I'll be hunting for Eileens in the future. I added only pale grey footless tights and Sofft booties, and some subtle jewelry. I like the simple lines of the dress as they outline, but don't hug, my shape.

|Simple accessories: just a chunky watch, cuff, earrings, and ankle boots.|
|This shapely Eileen Fisher pencil skirt would love to be in my closet.|
I can't wait to see what you are wearing today!
