With the weather being so unpredictable of late, sometimes we don’t know if we’re coming or going. But there are some perks to the sudden change of weather, we get to run around kicking leaves in autumnal shades, plus it’s another opportunity to update our wardrobe.
Boden’s new winter collection is the perfect antidote to the Britain’s ever-changing weather. Clean silhouettes in gorgeous floral prints and this season’s essentials in luxe fabrics injected with mouth-watering pops of colour are perfect for brightening grey days.
With versatile pieces, you can mix and match items that are perfect for the office or weekend cool. Pair mismatched prints and patterns for a quirky statement look, or add a pop of colour to heritage pieces like the versatile Bistro Crop for easy, laid back chic. For a more subtle take on the heritage trend, team denim with a heritage knit like the Chevron Yoke jumper.
Here, six fashion bloggers show us how they wear their Boden pieces.
I’m ecstatic to finally welcome some colour into my AW wardrobe and dressing like a giant popsicle is the order of the day. Pink was the colour cued to be everywhere and yet it has proven a little more elusive than we might first have thought. Bold colours do wonders for brightening grey days and lifting spirits (I’m a girl!) and I look forward to layering this knit with, dare I say it, more pink. Maybe a contrasting bobble hat when it gets colder as it is bound to.

The item I have chosen is the sumptuous British Tweed Blazer in blue stripe herringbone. With its cute cut, traditional tweed and quirky details (especially the pink button hole and floral lining) it's a funky twist on a British classic. It looks good with polka dots, fabulous with jeans, and equally as good over a delicate vintage dress. I'm looking forward to pinning some of my favourite antique brooches to the lapels - it's the simple things.

When the weather turns, there’s nothing I love more than cuddling up in a cardigan. This classic navy style in the softest cashmere is perfect for pairing with skinny jeans and statement heels for an off-duty look… just add a chunky scarf to keep out the chill. No coat required.

These trousers are a great ‘dress-up-dress-down’ workhorse, they are made from lovely Italian wool, which is lightweight yet warm, cosy without adding bulk and in a brown check that was made for Autumn days. I also went for the longer, ankle-skimming length that doesn’t let in a sneaky draught but still affords a good peek of geeky sock/shoe. What more could you really ask of a pair of winter trousers?

There's no denying that the weather has dropped of late and so there's no better time to stock up on cosy coats and invest in something that not only keeps you warm and comfortable but that also looks fabulous and vibrant. This orange moleskin duffle coat from Boden has to be one of the comfiest coats I’ve ever worn, fur lined and seriously good quality. From the moment I put it on I felt like I was cuddled up at home on my sofa, fire on, hot water bottle on lap & cuppa tea in hand. I styled it very simply with a jacquard shift dress and chunky ankle boots for a lazy Sunday stroll along the Thames. Perfection.

The Off-Duty Merino in a neutral shade is simply the best winter staple. Perfect with skinny jeans and leggings, all you need to do is add a great scarf to change the look each time you wear.
The flattering modern shape updates your look so easily and makes it super comfortable to wear. But for me, it's the quality of the merino wool that seals the deal as it wears and washes so well. Good quality, knitwear is well worth investing in - I know this jumper won't just be a 2013 winter staple - it's going to be a favourite for many years to come.
