Wardrobe Hero: The Dress

Wardrobe Hero: The Dress

This month we’re celebrating a true wardrobe icon that needs no introduction: the dress. For work or play, come rain or shine, the dress is your wardrobe’s BFF that can always be relied upon to take the drama out of getting dressed. Minimum effort, maximum impact – it’s our fashion rule of thumb.

Here at Boden, we put our dresses on a pedestal because we’re so proud of how they’ve turned out and, to prove it, we’re dedicating the entire month of February to their greatness. Over the next four weeks we’ll be showcasing some of our best-loved styles on some of our favourite, real-life customers and friends. Think of it as an exercise in inspiration.

We tasked one of our favourite blogger-photographers Candy Pop (AKA the supremely talented Natasha Denness) to lay out a few of our personal favourites in the feature below, complete with their made-to-match accessories. Something for everyone? But, of course.

Boden Fleur fitted dress in black with flowers and a red clutch and heels to match

The Fleur Fitted Dress

Petal power doesn’t get much better (or more beautiful) than the figure-flattering Fleur Dress. Take it out to play with the Vita Clutch and the delicate Joanna slingbacks and wait for the compliments to roll in.

Boden posy shirt dress in pink with red accessories

The Posy Shirt Dress

Featuring our in-house designed Glasshouse print, the Posy Shirt Dress is a statement style for work and play. Highlight the red tones of the exclusive print by teaming it with the Mini Tassel Pouch Bag and the Two-Part Court Shoe in, you guessed it, red.

Boden stripe Martha pencil dress and yellow heels

The Martha Dress

Dress for impact. Take the stripes of The Martha Dress to new heights with some punchy-in-a-good-way accessories. We’ve chosen the power of mimosa yellow in the form of the Two-Part Court Shoe and the figure-flattering Skinny Belt. More is more, after all.

Boden Romilly Dress

The Romilly Dress

Meet Romilly, otherwise known as ‘the one for special occasions’. Be it a wedding, party or dinner for two, this dress is anything but a wallflower. Our advice? Keep your accessories simple and co-ordinated to let the print stand out. The Angelica T-bar heel (in Meadow Green) paired with the Rowena Crossbody bag (in navy) should round off the look nicely.

Boden isabelle dress with maritime bag

The Isabelle Dress

Not all florals were created equal. The Isabelle Dress is in a class of its own, thanks to its oh-so bold tendencies. Play matchmaker with the Cecelia slingback flats, the statement Carina necklace and our best-selling Maritime bag.
