Always a perennial favourite for me, it’s as if a magnetic force draws me to those horizontal lines. And this has always been where my connection with Boden began – a brand that shamelessly heralds stripes? That’s something I can get on board with.
But this season they’ve added a few twists. I tried, for the first time, a stripe rollneck – which will look equally good with skinny black jeans and under a black mac (I’m thinking PVC a la Alexa during fashion Week). And then the classic breton? Try one with a paint stripe of pink down the front, or with velvet lace ties on the shoulders…because this season, it’s all in the details.

And I really don’t think we need to talk about the leopard shoes. Dreamy.

And from work to weekend, my look goes a little more (okay, a lot more) relaxed…my favourite weekend breton top feels fresh with a splash of pink – I have this style breton in a few colour ways now: classic, with spots etc – it washes so nicely and is a real outfit maker.
