I don’t know about you but I am always eager to receive the new Boden catalogue. It’s not so much that it is completely filled with stylish on trend pieces for the season, (although there are some – more about those another time) but it provides one of the first glimpses into the world of winter clothes at a time when the prospect of not having to have a permanent pedicure seems quite appealing. Turning down the corners of those pages – although now the handy stickers do the job for you – returning at a later date to see whether you still like what you have chosen, waiting for a better discount to appear in the Sunday Times….it is the start of a new chapter in our winter wardrobes. This is of course only the start and the glossy magazines are now talking about the new trends non stop. What will you opt for? Camel colour, a cape, minimalism, lace, the perfect trouser, colour block? The list is endless. I will soon be back to give you my lowdown on the top buys from the Boden catalogue and if you live in the Birmingham area, put Friday 26th November in your diary as the date for my next Style Event – Style in the Second City (2) where I will show you how to wear the trends for the season, whatever your figure, your lifestyle or your budget.
