We realise Boden’s ‘Nancy’ dress isn’t exactly appropriate for the current climate here in the frozen north, but that’s OK: this dress is part of the Boden summer preview, and although you CAN pre-order it now (And if you like it, you probably should, because we don’t see this one sticking around for long…), it’ll be at least eight weeks before you’ll actually own it. Will it be warm enough to wear it by then? Well, probably not, to be completely honest. But it’ll be warm enough ONE day, and that’s good enough for us.
The Boden ‘Nancy’ dress comes in three different prints, but this ‘Riviera’ version is the one everyone’s been talking about. Featuring a scenic summer seaside view, it’s pretty much the perfect sundress – oh, and there’s also a skirt version too, which is a little cheaper, but with the same pretty print.
Here are some other Fashion Police picks from the Boden spring preview:
A jersey blazer is one of the items on our list of summer essentials. Not only is a blazer handy to have around for chilly spring evenings (and OK, chilly spring DAYS…), a jersey version is also great to travel in, because it looks smart, but is also really comfortable and warm. This one has a cute, polka-dot pattern which is still subtle enough to allow you to wear it with just about anything.
Like the Boden ‘Nancy’ dress, these are available in a variety of different colours and prints. We never could resist a bit of gingham, though, so even although these will require a bit of careful styling to make sure they don’t look too much like pyjama pants, we reckon the effort will be worth it.
