It’s not just bridal wear trends the royal wedding has been influencing. With an understated sense of style that’s expected to flourish under the public eye, Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, is an inspiration for how to pick those classic pieces. The kind of pieces instrumental to building your curated wardrobe. And what better way to start than with a £300 voucher for quintessentially British brand Laura Ashley? We have one to give away.

How would we spend it? It’s a tough choice, but it’s hard to go past the brand’s Mad Men worthy dresses: we’d have our eye on a garden-party floral frock, or this head-turning emerald green shift dress that screams Joan Holloway. These are 50s inspirations that can be styled as classically regal or youthfully modern.
