Earlier this year I told you how much I was loving my new spring wardrobe from Boden, so I was thrilled when they invited me to choose some items from their Autumn/Winter collection.
A big trend this season is ‘ladylike’ – I’m guessing it’s the Mad Men influence. So here’s what I went for when I as choosing my own ladylike capsule collection:
Lou Lou dress in navy (£69). This is made from Ponte de Roma, which is basically a stretchy knit, ideal for travelling because it doesn’t crease. The dress is waisted with a full skirt, and it’s incredibly flattering.
Fab felt hat (£39). Oh I love this so much – it’s very Annie Hall/Sienna Miller, depending how you’re feeling. The blackberry colour looks gorgeous with the orange band.
Trapeze jacket (£169). I’ve always loved the shape of capes but for some reason they seem to envelop me and I get a bit lost in them. This has more structure and the bracelet-length sleeves make it ideal for throwing it on over a jumper. LOVE.
All items available from Boden.
