I've been a fan of Boden's adorable childrens' line, Mini Boden, for years. The clothes are adorable, different, hip, use cool colors, and are such great quality that they last for two or more seasons. And for boys that is saying something. The girls stuff is super adorable, and I can't wait to start shopping Mini Boden for my new niece.
The line for women has been a different story for me. In past years it has seemed, well, kooky. I love bright colors but not in loud, large combinations. Boden has seemed to be a mix of loud prints, huge 80s buttons, poofy skirts and sizing that always looks like it will be way too long. (They do not offer petites.) Even with free shipping and returns, I never bit before. And with prices similar or more than J. Crew of old, there never seemed to be anything worth the investment.
Fast forward to the newest catalogue. As I leafed through, I found several things I like and I though could actually look good. A few straight skirts. Tops that don't have patterns a girl would wear. Cool color combinations. And the prices seem to be a bit lower. My purchases this spring will be limited, but I am seriously considering a few items.
Do you like Boden for you or for your kids? Do you favor brighter colors or do you like the nudes and neutrals in vogue as of late?
Thanks for visiting!
