Second Look: Laura Ashley

May 24, 2011


[I] am totally dating myself with this reference, but who remembers the iconic Laura Ashley jumpers? I practically lived in them in my younger years and I’m fairly certain that whole line contributed to a floral boycott from 1989-2000.

For those that are not familiar with the legendary english design house, here are the styles that are swept the country and eventually made us wonder if english women were completely insane.

Let us not speak of this again.

It’s been a long time since I’ve thought about Laura Ashley, but the other day I stumbled across some images that made me want to take a second look at their line. While all the 1980s ultra-conservative references are not gone, there are good reasons to take a second look.

A little fresher, a little crisper and a whole lot more flattering, wouldn’t you say? I still love me a good jumpsuit.
