Linen Suit – Neutrals To Mix With Anything!

You may have seen on my Instagram stories, my little trying on session in Laura Ashley? I was immediately drawn to these wide-legged linen trousers and as soon as they were on my body it was love. I already have a very similar linen jacket from the brand that’s from the last collection to pair as a suit

Linen’s a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it I’m a lover!

This jacket must have proved to be very popular from the last Laura Ashley collection for it to be relaunched for this SS18


Linen love from Laura Ashley


I’ve already worn this jacket that was acquired just before last winter. It looked great with a roll neck jumper and I’ve also worn it with a belt, utility style. The round neck makes it easy and versatile to mix other clothing with and this linen is thicker than your average and it’s very soft, so doesn’t crease quite so much as your lighter linen, but I love the simplicity of linen and all its natural behaviour.

Side zip, my favourite style of fastening for that flatter tummy effect!


You can see above the true texture of the material. It’s super soft and comfortable to wear. I like the button detailing and the trousers have buttons either side at the waist just above the pockets. I’ve paired the suit with a silky Coral top and my Orange wedge sandals to add a pop of colour, but that’s the beauty of this biscuit colour, it will pair with anything.

If your a regular reader you will know that wide/flared legged trousers are my favourite style. Elongating the legs, I need some of that!



Looking towards the sun going down, hasn’t the weather been just so beautiful? I couldn’t get that wardrobe change over done quick enough. The summer stuff is out and last winters clothes have been put away with the lids firmly shut until next time. I was very happy to see the back of it!

I will create a lot of looks from these two items, the simplicity of the material will mix with so much. Plain, stripes and florals.



I’m still going to be wearing the stripe Laura Ashley dress from last year, the quality of this brand is exceptional and I remember how popular the dress was. I also have a gorgeous outfit to share with you when I’m on my holidays. Yay! Counting down the days! Not long now! Laura Ashley has some gorgeous dresses this year, I’ve just spotted a gorgeous,  Kaftan on there, why didn’t I see that before?!!

So are you a lover or a hater? Do you wear linen often? Or do the creases scare you! I love this relaxed style!



Here’s to more sun and relaxed style!

    I’m a linen fan as I’m into natural and textures but the creasing is annoying. Still I find it handy in the summer for work first thing in the morning but not so by the end of the day.

      Depending on the stiffness of the Linen Anna. This is soft, yes you do get some creasing but not as much. I love the naturalness of it xx

    I love linen! It is so soft that I don’t really care much if it creases! Your jacket and pants go so well together even though you purchased your jacket a few seasons back. I love how you styled your linen pants and turned it into a beautiful suit. Just fabulous!

      April 29, 2018 / 10:46 pm

      Yep! You either love it or hate it! This suit is very soft though and it’s not as bad as the course linen xx

  19. April 27, 2018 / 7:42 am

    You look chic as ever in this linen safari suit, but dear oh dear, I just look a crumpled mess in linen! I love the idea of it and have bought many pairs of linen trousers over the years in the hope that somehow they’ll look good on me, but they never do. Orange is great partner here with the natural linen and yes, I think I can even spy those orange sandals of yours that I covet – hand them over! Hahaha x

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Very pretty Laurie! I love that you had a perfect match with the jacket from last year. Linen is showing huge right now and is a great cooler fabric for the hotter months. Love your pop of orange and what a great bag!

  26. April 26, 2018 / 9:06 am

    Looking delectable, Laurie! Oh how I love this jacket and spookily I’ve been thinking of coral and chinos lately (new chinos are sitting in my M&S basket). Love that colour combo.
    I prefer your jacket’s 4 pocket style for my body shape. Sometime soon I’m going to hook out my brown linen safari suit (Artigiano, 2007) from the archives and give it a bit of ” 2nd Loved By Me” time.
    Hugs, my sweet, x

    Super Laurie, I have worn linen in the past and love it! I do hate the fact that it creases so much, yours doesn’t look like it does. Have a super holiday, I’ll looking forward to getting away soon. Hope to see you on #chicandstylish on Thursday. Jacqui Mummabstylish

    It’s a fabulous suit, especially with the trousers being wide-legged. I love how you provided a pop of colour with the orange top and wedges but as you mentioned, the suits neutral shade makes it perfectly combinable with many different colours or prints. I have to confess that although I like the look of linen, I’m not much of a fan of it myself as I can’t live with the wrinkles. Perfectionist, me? xxx
