So do Boden. You may not have noticed (because you don’t usually shop there for you. I mean, the kids’ stuff is fab but the women’s line isn’t really me? Sound familiar?) but with their spring-summer season, they have really stepped it up. And show me a girl who professes to hate a makeover and I’ll refuse to believe her. Deep down, we all love a sport of makeover magic.
There are fab printed trousers (the Bistro Crop (above in ‘pink tile’) comes in a dizzying array of colours and patterns, from £59. At the recent press day, one of the lovely PR team was rocking the polka dot Bistro Crop with a contrasting shirt, and very natty she looked,too). The Shirt (top picture), £39, is a button up classic (team with a contrasting jumper – personally, I am in love with striped (of course) fine knit cashmere jumper, £135 (but it is the loveliest fine knit which you could chuck on over a t-shirt on a British day at the beach or wear to the office with cropped trousers and an over-sized, possibly a little bonkers necklace – something like this, perhaps?)
Check it out. Boden, you’ve come over all J Crew on us, and we love it.
