You may not want to admit it, but you're starting to think about the holidays. You've begun planning out which days you're taking off from work, whose house you're going to for Thanksgiving, and most importantly, what you're going to wear to the inevitable crush of holiday parties that will start before you know it. Boden's velvet flats, which are trimmed with a grosgrain ribbon and gemstones, add a cheery, festive touch to even the most basic winter outfit. They can also be tucked conveniently into a handbag when you need to wear snow boots to your destination.
