Laura Ashley is best recognised for being a well-known British fashion designer, who made waves in the 1960’s and is still as popular to this day.
Her brand is known for being very aesthetically pleasing, expanding into homeware as well as women’s clothing.
Dainty floral prints and muted colours are a key part of what the brand is all about.
Seeing as the brand was extremely popular several decades ago, it was decided that the high-end empire needed to be brought into the 21st century.
What better way to do that than to get the trendy American high-street retailer, Urban Outfitters on the case!
It was announced in the last few weeks that they have done just that and collaborated with Laura Ashley on a brand new capsule collection.
The collection was available worldwide on the 3rd May, with reports that some lines are already sold out on the Urban Outfitters website.
We absolutely adore this collab, with cutesy headbands and feminine bodysuits left, right and centre!
Check out some of the adorable pieces from this collection down below!
This is one of the dresses on offer within the collection, which is just absolutely stunning!
We adore the subtle pale blue and white colour palette.
This is a dress which is totally ideal for the (hopefully!) warm summer months to come.
The cute slight ruffle detailing on the hemline adds a really sweet, romantic feel.
A pair of specs that would be great with this piece are these sweet Hygge Denmark 5018 examples from our online eyewear store.
This is another stunning dress from the collection!
The squared neckline definitely helps to make this piece stand out – we love this trendy touch.
The print is so dreamy – it seems to be somewhat inspired by Dutch landscapes due to the prominence of the windmills featured.
The puffed sleeves also help to add a cool 80’s twist to the proceedings, whilst still capturing that feminine feel.
This garment is perfect for a simple daytime look, featuring heaps of jewellery and of course, a bold pair of specs!
Take a look at this pair of #totallook DW043 examples from us here at SelectSpecs.
Simple and Sophisticated
This is one of the simpler designs from the collaboration.
The ruffled neckline is very vintage looking in style, which helps to add some interest to this piece.
We also love the subtle ruffle detail on the armholes – it really makes the design complete.
Additionally, the cream colour makes the dress so easy to style for practically any look – result!

We are totally obsessed with this timeless floral print!
In addition, the style of this dress is just so perfect – we adore the bardot style neckline, which is so on-trend right now.
The colour palette of this garment is so on point – the contrast between the light teal and the deep red shade is everything!
This dress can be worn for several different occasions too, which makes it such an incredibly versatile piece within the collection.

The detailing on this piece is so cute!
The bow in the centre and the ruffled neckline help to give a charming, cutesy look to the piece.
The ribbed style was also a good choice, as ribbing is continuing to be extremely popular this season.
The simple floral print is also so feminine and pretty.
A possible matching pair of specs are these #totallook DW158 options from us.
