I vacillated over this order for some time. Unusual for me. Of course I ended up placing the order as previously when I have been on the fence and not ordered, hoping to try them in the clearance, the items have promptly received rave reviews and sold out – the Border print tunic for instance (though more stock was recently added so I swooped!).
It was initially the print of the Fab jersey tunic that I couldn’t decide on – I loved the colors and have a current obsession with green – so knowing how often fabrics look better in real life than online, I ordered both the prune and the moss. I am thrilled I did! I like the pebble colorway too but think it’s a bit too pale for me. As always the jersey is super soft and stretchy and to me the cut feels as if it does nip in a little at the waist making it less straight up and down. I ordered the US 6 which seems to be my regular size for Boden tunics – especially jersey. I’m 5’6″, 140lbs, 36C with no waist so I definitely think a Boden US 6/UK 10 is more generous than other brands. The prune is gorgeous – a lovely brown background and the lilac flowers are gorgeous, so even though it is brown the colors feel very summery – it’s going to be stunning with a golden tan (spf everyone!!).
The moss is lovely too. I think moss is a bad color name – for me it conjures up dirty greens on a damp day – not good! This green is actually much fresher and vibrant – though not lurid and fluorescent – a good balance and again perfect for summer. The navy flowers mean it can be worn easily with navy shoes too – but nude flats would look great with both colorways.
The Fab jersey tunic comes heartily recommended!
