Review: Boden Sophia Shirt Dress

October 03, 2017

The Boden Sophia Shirt Dress had been one of my favorite work pieces over the summer, and it recently went on sale so I thought a more detailed review is now in order.

The dress is made from a machine-washable cotton blend--97% cotton and 3% elastane--that is fairly wrinkle resistant. The style is simple but well-executed: the slimming rounded sleeves are just long enough to cover armpits, the modest flare from the waist is flirty but not childish, and the side pockets are deep enough to hide your entire hand in if you are someone who is prone to gesticulate wildly when unchecked. 

But the detail that I found most valuable is the row of hidden buttons that prevent gaping, which should be standard for all button-down shirts for women.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Boden sizing, Boden's 2P translates roughly to a 0P/00P in J. Crew/Ann Taylor. This dress in 2P measures 16.5" from underarm to underarm, 36.5" in length, and 13" across the waist.

Below I show three ways I've worn this dress. As the weather cools, I also plan to top it with a cropped sweater.
Boden Sophia Shirt Dress in Saffron Regatta Leaf (size 2P) || J. Crew Schoolboy Blazer (past season; size 00) || Salvatore Ferragamo Medium Ginny Leather Shoulder Bag (also here and here) || Hermes Reversible Belt || Ann Taylor Mila Leather Pumps
Boden Sophia Shirt Dress in Saffron Regatta Leaf (size 2P) || J. Crew Martie Pant in Bi-Stretch Wool in Navy (past season; size 00) || Salvatore Ferragamo Medium Ginny Leather Shoulder Bag (also here and here) || Ann Taylor Mila Leather Pumps
Boden Sophia Shirt Dress in Saffron Regatta Leaf (size 2P) || J. Crew Schoolboy Blazer (past season; size 00) || J. Crew Sailor Skirt In Double-Serge Wool in Heather Honey (past season; size 00) || Prada Medium Saffiano Double-Zip Tote || Ann Taylor Mila Leather Pumps
Hundreds of new styles have recently been discounted up to 70% off at Boden. My sale picks: Twist Front Jersey Maxi Dress, Isadora Broderie Dress, Riviera Dress, Alannah Jersey Dress, Althea Lace Dress, Rita Ruched Jersey Dress, Julia Knitted Dress, and Printed Cotton A-Line Skirt.

In other sale news, select full-price styles and most sale styles at J.Crew are 40% off with code YAYCLOTHES. My picks: Wrap Bodysuit, Tippi Turtleneck Sweater with Ruffles, Merino Wool Sweater-Blazer, Oversized Cardigan in Wool-Blend, Dover Blazer in Italian Wool, and Sweater with Ruffle Sleeves.

Happy shopping!
