Taking A Look At Boden's New In For AW16 & WIWT - Day 5

Morning ladies, today I thought it would be fun to start looking at all the new season clothing heading into store & where better to start than with Boden, who have recently just launched their first drop for AW16.

Needless to say there's lots of temptation & again this season all of their shoes are to die for, with of course the obligatory splashes of 'Bet' thrown in for all us leopard print lovers :-)

What I love most about Boden is you just know you're going to be guaranteed great quality, well made pieces that will last you a lifetime & of course if you 'click that button' at the right time i.e. during a discount week you can buy at great prices too :-)

I've selected a few of my key pieces below that would make great staples on which to build a capsule wardrobe & have created 3 different looks just to give you an idea of how I'd see them working for the coming season.

Starting with this first outfit, which I think you'll all agree are items that could be mixed up in so many different ways.  I just love the soft grey of the coat & of course the saddle bag & boots are definitely 'must haves', which if past seasons are to go by, are sure to sell out fast!

AW16 Inspiration, My Midlife Fashion, Shop My Style, Boden V Neck Ravello top, Boden Richmond ⅞ trousers, Boden sally coat, boden pony saddle bag, boden zip low heel boot, animal print boots, animal print saddle bag

Trousers - Boden £59.50
Coat - Boden £139
Bag - Boden £109
Boots - Boden £129

For the second look I've again stuck with timeless items that are bought up to date with the addition of the wave ballet pump & the crop flare trousers (which would also look perfect with a statement court shoe or block heel ankle boot).  I just love cropped trousers all year round, as they bring such a stylish elegance to an outfit.  Imagine the trousers below with a high block heel ankle boot & loose fit cashmere polo neck jumper.  Layer up some statement bracelets & clutch & you've got a stylish look that would be so easy to wear & could so easily take you from day to night.

Shirt - Boden £54.50
Jacket - Boden £89
Crop Flare Trousers - Boden £59.50

And for my third outfit I've gone for an everyday look by teaming a relaxed fit cashmere 'V' neck jumper with girlfriend fit turn up jeans, leopard print slip on trainers & finished the look off with a double breasted blazer to tie the outfit together & bring a tailored more structured feel to the casual pieces.

So ladies what are your thoughts on Boden's first AW16 drop?  Have you seen anything to tempt you?  Maybe you've already 'clicked that button' - if so what have you ordered & is it a keeper or are you undecided/returning it?  Perhaps you've still yet to order from Boden having been put off in the past with all the bright coloured patterned items they were well known for?  As always I love hearing your thoughts & reading your comments.

Back tomorrow & for anyone missing my daily outfit pictures, while I'm away I'm uploading them  herehere & here.
