It’s been a while since I bought from Boden – I think I had too much of a good thing for a while. The last items I bought were a couple of shirts (last seen here), which I have to say are amazing quality and the detailing is far superior to any other brand at the equivalent price point. I have the seaspray and lemon curd gingham – gorgeous summer colors.
Well it’s now that time of year, now summer has well and truly arrived, that I start lusting over the amazing Boden tunics. I am a sucker for a great Boden tunic. The ease of wearing them in the heat can’t be beaten. The jersey ones are my favorite – they can be worn poolside, out for dinner or for travel. They wash and pack super easily. So as I have only 3 weeks before packing for England and N. Cyprus I thought I’d have a little peek.
Boden have switched up their product launches this year. Instead of only the main Spring range, with Summer items added at a later date, they seem to be drip feeding more items throughout the season. It makes sense – it keeps the consumer going back more often. At the start of Spring there were only 3 tunics to choose from. Now there are many more – and they are gorgeous!
The Breton this year is lovely – personally I prefer the traditional blue and white, but I have a soft spot for the charcoal and soft red too.
The Biarritz is just fabulous – I will wear this for cocktails. I LOVE the guava print – it’s got such a glamorous vintage feel to it.
The knitted kaftan is this year’s version of the Florence tunic that I have a couple of (here and here). I love the pattern this year – again it gives it a great vintage feel.
Finally I’ve just ordered all 3 colors in this one – I just couldn’t choose – the plait detail tunic. It will be perfect for traveling and I can wear it day and night – I love the fact it is sleeveless too.
I prefer a tunic to a maxi as I like to show my legs. Do you like tunics? Which are your picks for the summer? If you decide to try don’t forget that Boden have a great discount right now – get 20% off with free shipping and returns using this link before Thursday!
