“Stretchy and forgiving”, “really good length” and a “nice fit” – just some of the praise accorded to Boden’s ever-popular Richmond ⅞ trousers. Their flattering shape seems to suit just about everyone: “I have a flat bum, love handles and a thick middle and they suit me,” preaches one convert.

Breton Top, £28

<h3><a href="http://tidd.ly/106299b5">Breton Top, £28</a></h3>

A casual wardrobe staple, Boden's Breton comes in a myriad of stripy styles. Whether you're devoted to the traditional French colour combo or fancy a twist on the classic, it's a comfy yet hard-wearing top which will “last for ages”. We're told they can run a little roomy though, so consider sizing down “unless your norks need more room”.

Ruching flatters all body shapes and this jersey wrap style has been hailed “classic and wearable”. The new season Rita comes in timeless black or with colourful spot details, and is a “longer length – a winner for me”. Easy to wear for work or a fancy dinner (or both).

The “fab” Ravello top comes in bright colours and classy prints with a simple v-neck and flattering pleats. It's no wonder this is a bestselling style – but even more importantly, it's minimal fuss: “they don't need ironing if you hang them to dry” and they “wash beautifully”. Win-win.
