Boden Fall Preview!!

Oooh it’s a while since I’ve been SO excited about Boden’s preview!  They are really changing things over in West London.  The first thing I noticed on the preview were the colors – lots of fabulous pinks, oranges and greens, along with some beautiful neutral tones.  Classic Boden is still there for the loyal followers, but there is definitely a younger, contemporary vibe to appeal to those more ‘on trend’ shoppers.

Here are some of my top picks that are sitting in my shopping cart – don’t bother adding it up – it’s a lot!  There is however 20% off the preview right now (code PRV3) and it’s always nice to get items you REALLY want before anyone else has tried them and returned them, though you will have to wait till the end of July if you can!

You all know how much I’ve loved this season’s folded clutch – well next season’s version is a dream too, in some amazing colors.  It’s quite large as you can see from the above photo.  I have the following colors in my cart:)  Again it can also be worn cross body – I love the versatility for day to evening.

Next up are these amazing Chelsea boots – look at the details and trim!  The pewter would be amazing with some black wool trousers – if only I still worked in the City I’d wear them every day!

These fuchsia desert boots are fabulous – just imagine them with a grey cashmere jumper and boyfriend jeans!

The Chic ankle boot is a dead ringer for the Sam Edelman Petty boot – so it’s not in my cart as I have the leopard print version sitting in my closet – but you know Boden’s quality will be amazing.

There is plenty of cashmere again this season.  I have J.Crew and Boden cashmere – and Boden’s is far superior – so much softer and better quality – in my eyes anyway.  This year I want a simple black crew neck.

This cashmere sweater is gorgeous – more expensive because of the pattern, but for a statement jumper it can’t be beaten.

Finally (for now) I adore this short sleeved sweater – again perfect with boyfriend jeans, which it looks like I’ll be wearing through to Christmas this year!

My only critique is PLEASE don’t become just another J.Crew – there are a couple of items that are completely J.Crew – stop it Boden and stick with your own creativity please.

This necklace is a smaller version of the ubiquitous J.Crew bubble necklace:

…and this sweater is either J.Crew or Joules…not keen I’m afraid.

What are your favorite picks for next season?  Just try and save some pennies as I expect there will be a lot more added throughout the season again as they have done this summer!

  1. I’ve got to get the pink bag, I just wish I didn’t have to wait until late July! I actually put a bunch of the children’s things in my basket. Or rather, my girls did. There’s a great owl print and adorable appliqued sweatshirts. Kindergarten outfits here we come!

    • Ha I haven’t even looked at the kids stuff yet! Not in a hurry though as they are in shorts and tees here till the end of October usually! That pink bag is divine isn’t it?!

  2. Oh lots of temptations, and I’ve a discount voucher, must have a look! Love love the Chelsea boots. The necklace also reminds me of the beautiful one I will be ordering on Avenue 57! And i think I love the little bird print jumper – thinking a new addition for my favourite jeans of the moment (boyfriend of course!!)

  3. I am so excited by the autumn preview, I used to buy everything from Boden and follow their Facebook page religiously (that’s where I first saw you posting your daily boden outfits) , but then everything got too samey and so I haven’t shopped there much in a while but the new season and the preview is boden at its best and the quality is always fab, my credit card is about to get a hammering.
    Take care

  4. I love a lot of the preview, but wish it would ship in September/October when we actually wear it – but retail is always a season in advance. I love the cashmere crewneck in the pink/navy stripe and the elbow sleeve merino jumper. Love the pink clutch, patent wallet in cobalt, the chic ankle boot, and the wedge ankle boot in navy, the Boulevard Dress in coral/sixties spot, the Carnaby Tunic in imperial blue, the Brompton Jacket, the Alice Lace Top and I love the colors of berry, blackberry, pink and iris (I think it will really brighten up the winter months). I don’t like, however, the replacement of silk with viscose. I have several of Boden’s tops in viscose, and they wear well, but they don’t have the same look/feel as silk; it just feels a bit “off”.

I love hearing your thoughts and I will reply as soon as I can if you have a specific question! If you prefer email you can contact me at Joanna@Poppys-Style.com. Thanks for taking the time to comment xx
