Best Wardrobes in Britain: Laura Jackson


Whether you know her as the effervescent presenter of ITV’s Take Me Out: The Gossip, the supper club co-host and cookery book author behind Jackson & Levine: Round to Ours, or the chic curator behind homeware marketplace Glassette, you will likely feel like you already know Laura Jackson. Only an expert host could make strangers feel immediately welcome, and on the grey day that we shoot Laura in her East London home, we gather in her bright and busy kitchen to chat about her weekend. Pouring cups of tea with one hand and pulling outfits together with the other, I ask if she has a lot on. “I’ve got a lot going on every day, but I like it that way!” she says, straight from hosting a trip to Scotland to celebrate her latest Barbour campaign and stopping at the Chelsea Flower Show on her way back.

As quickly as Laura shifts between her roles; balancing babies, brand campaigns and broadcasting—her style adapts, too. Looking through her wardrobe, there is a mix of new, vintage (Natacha Ramsay Levi-era Chloé and Tom Ford-era Gucci), cute knits and everyday basics, but there are also some killer handbags. “I guess it turns out that I’m quite into bags,” she says, pulling out a collection that boasts Chanel, Mulberry and Shrimps. (But before we get carried away, she says she won’t waste money on anything impractical, and all bags must pass the laptop test to be considered).
