Boden is one of those staple high street brands you can always rely on for a cute dress, jersey basic or warm cosy knit. And perhaps surprisingly, the brand is currently celebrating its 30th birthday — oh how time flies!
To mark the special occasion, the high street label (which is loved by Kate Middleton, no less) has decided to take a look into its history in order to create a gorgeous collection that honours where it has come from and how it has got to where it is now.
The Boden ‘best of’ capsule collection features some of the brand’s bestselling designs from over the years, re-imagined for 2021, and across womenswear, children’s wear and menswear. The line couldn’t have come at a better time if you ask us, as it’s packed full to the brim with excellent autumn/winter buys that will become wardrobe staples for the coming cooler season and for years to come.
For example, they’ve brought back the Charlotte Cardigan, which was a bestseller for ten straight seasons after launching and becoming incredibly popular. The gorgeous knit has been re-designed in a chic navy colour, which will flatter everyone. It also features bold white round buttons, and a super cute collar detail that we can’t stop looking at.
‘A cardigan that’s ready for anything? Look no further,’ the product page reads. ‘Thanks to its blend of cotton and wool, it has a substantial feel. Better still, the relaxed fit has comfortable drop shoulders, so layering is easy when there’s a nip in the air. For a sophisticated look, we’ve given it a statement collar and contrasting buttons. Large patch pockets offer the perfect refuge for chilly hands.’ It comes in sizes 6-22 and is £130.
In addition to the gorgeous knit, there’s the Sophie Long Sleeve Breton top at £55, the Mariam dress at £240 and the Rachael skirt, to name but a few designs from the Boden ‘best of’ collection.
