There are days when you want to show off what your mama gave you, and there are days when you're feeling a bit more discreet. Eileen Fisher's Notch Box-Top is for the latter—but it's as chic as it is comfy. Generously cut with a hemline that's shorter in front and longer in back, this sweater is fashioned from soft merino jersey and features a flattering wide scoop neckline with fine rib trim at the sleeves and hem. You can dress it up with a pencil skirt or slim trousers for work, dress it down with beat-up boyfriend jeans on the weekend or—my favorite way to go—pair it with black leather pants and piled on jewelry for a rock and roll vibe. It comes in six pretty colors, from fire engine red to Aegean blue, and retails for $198. And if you're feeling especially flush, there's a cashmere version, as well. Say hello to your new best friend.
