When the Princess of Wales wants to do semi-casual dressing, she often turns to British retailer Boden. Founded in 1991 in West London, the chain (found in John Lewis department stores) specializes in colorful clothing with an emphasis on playful prints, bohemian styles and vacation ready resort wear.

Princess Kate embraces the modern whimsy of Boden — from scalloped sweaters to fun floral wrap dresses — she loves the retro charm and laidback luxe of this chic high street label.

Here are 10 of Kate Middleton’s Clothing Favorites from Boden:

1. Boden Aurora Blue Daisy Print Midi Wrap Dress

A lightweight and versatile dress, this boho luxe midi features an allover daisy print with a floaty tiered skirt, three-quarter sleeves and tie waist. The long sleeve dress has a functional front wrapover cross bodice, blouson sleeves and a hem length at mid-calf. Perfect for school runs, date nights or summer parties, the blue dress has been worn by the princess for the annual Wales family Christmas Card in 2019 and reappeared on Her Royal Highness for a Zoom call in May 2022.


2. Boden Viola Maxi Shirt Dress in Green 

Known for designing modern dresses with enchanting blossom and geo prints, this maxi fits right in with the regulars in the Boden catalog. A ditsy floral print gives this classic shirtdress character while a tie belt and tiered skirt plus a breezy button front offer easy elegance. The princess stepped out in this spring-ready dress for a Baby Bank visit in Norfolk in August 2020.


3. Boden Red Lena Coat

A reddish orange coat was Kate’s colorful Queen Elizabeth inspired choice for a visit to Great Ormond Street hospital in January 2018. The princess wore the strutuced coat made of pure cotton over a peach hued shift dress designed the palace’s private dressmaker. Princess Kate’s vibrant tangerine topper also has a ruffled collar detail, knee-length finish and oversized statement buttons. Originally retailing for $330, the princess’ mother Carole Middleton was seen in the exact same Lena coat for errands in the fall of 2018.


4. Boden Woven Waist Belt in Tan Suede

A soft woven belt finished with leather detailing and a round buckle, the princess has worn this waist cinching accessory once for a visit to Scarborough in November 2022.


5. Boden Lollipop Pink Skinny Suede Belt

Adding contemporary appeal to any outfit, this bright bubblegum pink belt features a sleek square buckle with a soft suede finish. Princess Kate wore this figure flattering belt paired with a blush colored ME+EM shirtdress for tea with Mila Sneddon in May 2021 in Scotland.


6. Boden Pointed Ballet Flats in Black Suede 

Deftly combining retro charm with modern magic, these pointed flats are adorned with a square statement buckle and are crafted from smooth responsibly sourced suede. Kate has donned the slip-on shoes for a baby bank visit in Windsor in April 2023 and a visit to the Orchards Centre in Kent in September 2023.


7. Boden Dora Tie Neck Blouse 

A lightweight shirt with a gentle drape, this pussy bow blouse features sophisticated shaped shoulders and fabric covered buttons. The airy 100% viscose design also has a pretty abstract pink and white print.


8. Boden Cashmere Crewneck Sweater in Black

Worn by the princess on three occasions, this classic 100% cashmere sweater is soft and semi-fitted. Perfect as a layering piece and undershirt for blazers and wool coats, this warm but breathable sweater is perfect for fall days and crisp winter nights. Kate has paired the classic crew with an L.K. Bennett Mya blazer in yellow and an L.K. Bennett Spencer recycled wool red coat


9. Boden Hambleden Scallop Jumper in Azalea Pink

A sherbet pink sweater, this pullover boasts a delicate scalloped trim neckline and is knitted from a soft yarn and merino wool blend. Worn by the princess for a school visit during the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2021, she paired this Barbie-esque sweater with a Max & Company pink wrap belted runaway coat.


10. Boden Cashmere Knit Top in Smoky Quartz

In the fall of 2021, Princess Kate visited North West England (Cumbria) in this short sleeve sweater top in an oatmeal shade called ‘smoky quartz.’ Featuring ribbed detailing at the neck and cuffs, this pullover cashmere top has an ultra soft feel thanks to its cozy construction.
