Olivia is an early 90s silk bias cut slip dress from Laura Ashley. This dress is much more restrained than the Laura Ashley styles of the 80s with the shoulder ruffle being the only nod to earlier bows and flounces. Instead, here we have Laura Ashley embracing the cleaner minimal spirit of the 90s keeping things simple and elegant in timeless black. the bias cut of this dress will hug the body in all the right places, but also allows more give. Can be worn as a low scoop neck with straps up or as an off the shoulder style.
This dress is perfect for understated summer dressing but can be layered up with knit wear and chunky boots to work well into the Autumn season to maximise its use.
