Are you a Boden fan? This British brand is well known for its fun clothing in bright prints and stripes. I’ve been eyeing their dresses for a while now, and was happy to see they also make tops and other colorful pieces, like this colorful Boden top!
Their motto is fun, too:
“We’ll sort the clothes, you be you.”
Boden also makes a line called Mini Boden for babies and children for those of you with small children or grandchildren. I don’t have any of those yet as my son is determined to not marry until he is 30! So, we have three years to prepare! Lol!
Speaking of preparing, I’m busily setting things aside for our upcoming cruise to the British Isles. Since the weather is an unknown almost anywhere you go, we’re watching the weather reports and planning for anything from the 50s to the 80s. That means, shorts and long pants, sandals and closed shoes, sleeveless and long sleeves, and jackets and sweaters. In other words, layers. Can’t go wrong with those, right?
This pretty top and ankle pants will make a good base layer and provide some color and style regardless of the temperature. Besides, Boden is a British line so I should fit right in for our UK destination! Haha!
The Colorful Boden Top Outfit
This colorful Boden top came in my Trunk Club selection and it was a nice surprise. It’s the perfect summer top with the festive colors and slightly off-shoulder neckline.
Of course, I love the bright color for summer! The two-tiered ruffled neckline creates such a festive look, and the vivid red and palm print is what makes this colorful Boden top stand out.
The fabric is a crisp cotton, like many of Boden’s products. Here are a few additional pieces by this iconic brand:
The palms are in a sort of muted pink so I chose my pink Wit & Wisdom ankle pants to play that off. I love the combination of red and pink! And the fit of these pants is amazing. They advertise their “Ab-solution” feature that slims the waist with a higher rise. They are quite a slim fit with a lot of stretch, too.
Do you ever wonder what shoes could possibly “go” with an outfit like this? Of course, you could wear red shoes or even pink if you’ve got them for a “matchy-matchy” feel, but another good choice is to stick with a neutral shoe when you wear a colorful outfit. These tan suede wedge sandals don’t compete with the bright colors in the top and offer a neutral background.
To keep the contrast between red and pink, pale pink tasseled earrings complete the look.
