The check blazer
If you’re looking for an easy way to update your wardrobe this season, look no further than our brilliant stand-out blazer. With a dog print lining and pops of yellow, this check blazer is our style hero. Wear with jeans and a shirt for a casual weekend look, or elevate with black courts when headed to work. The fit is just perfect — and it will look just as good worn out for a Sunday lunch as it will do running to meetings. Get your hands on it now to avoid disappointment.
The leopard print shirt
Your next big look has been spotted; leopard embodies animal print glamour. This season’s biggest trend is at the forefront of our AW18 collections — and this stand-out shirt is our new favourite. We’re loving this hero piece as part of our office wardrobe, worn with black trousers and mules. When the weekend comes around, pair down with jeans or a denim skirt for no-fuss, low-key glamour. Buy now and love it forever.
The coloured trousers
Bottoms come out on top with our coloured trousers creating bold looks. Whether you go for a classic black style, maroon, navy or fun fuchsia, our collection of slim leg trousers are the best thing to buy this season. There’s no better occasion to rethink your wardrobe than just before London Fashion Week. When it comes to trousers, the brighter the better. Tuck in a crisp white shirt and pair with smart white trainers, or wear on the school run with a comfy oversized knit. And if you can’t quite choose, there’s no harm in buying them all.
The cross body bag
Throw-on-and-go style is at your fingertips with our collection of lovely faux crocodile skin bags. Whether you’re running late, going to get the kids from school, or spending a day in the city, this versatile bag is big enough for all of those everyday essentials without feeling like a large, heavy shopper. Created in four stand-out shades for you, with a double-zip style and long cross body strap, these bags are brilliant additions to any autumn wardrobe.
The mustard funnel coat
Our mustard funnel coat channels high-end winter chic that doesn’t skimp on colour. This one was a firm favourite of the fashion team and quickly made it into our London Fashion Week edit without a second thought. It’s our favourite coat of the season, loved by everyone at Laura Ashley HQ for its beautiful warm feel, stand-out colour, practical length and on-trend look. If you buy one thing this season, make it this wear-everywhere coat.
Our poncho is perhaps the most practical (and cosy) item to invest in for autumn and winter. Layer over your favourite knitted jumper, pair with ankle boots and enjoy the crisp cold weather. We couldn’t think of any better way to stay warm. If you’re after something with more of a statement colour, our ponchos also come in brilliant bright colourways, so there really is something here for everyone. Wrap up, head outside and keep warm in our cosy cover-up.
