My A/W ladylike capsule collection

October 4, 2012

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.

DISCLAIMER: The women in these photos are not actually me, nor do they bear a resemblance to me. But most of the clothes they’re wearing are indeed the ones I’ve been sent. It was my make-up artist’s day off *cough*.

    Love the dress and the hat. I am thinking of getting a hat like that but always feel a bit self conscious in millinery.
    I am a big time cape wearer – love them – they always look extra gorgeous with a brooch (also very ladylike).
    Enjoy wearing them . (Style Guile is also showing off some of her Boden wears today too!)

    Love your choices Liz – especially the dress and hat! I think the Boden for AW12 has been superb and am still in love with my Breton from spring. xx
