Get Stuff We Love
Remember Laura Ashley? The British brand known for its romantic, vintage floral prints?
Back in the ‘90s, plenty of teens and 20-somethings scoured thrift stores for Laura Ashley blouses, dresses and prairie skirts that they could pair with a velvet choker and a pair of high-tops or chunky combat boots.
These days, Laura Ashley is better known as a home brand, but now the company is celebrating its ‘90s fashion legacy with a new capsule collection for Urban Outfitters.
The 13-piece collection features new items designed especially for Urban Outfitters, including dresses, tops, and pants covered in Laura Ashley’s signature floral patterns.
The pieces have a fresh, modern feel while still serving up some serious nostalgia.
Case in point: this loose-fitting sundress with a faded, vintage-inspired print.

"The collection is perfect for the customer shopping for back-to-school or for someone just getting introduced to Laura Ashley."
