Wanna have a wardrobe like Lucy Mecklenburgh? Now you can...

When we heard that former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh was bringing out a collection with online retailer PrettyLittleThing, we couldn’t contain ourselves!

Not only does the leading lady have the best beach body we could only dream of but she has a beautiful beau to match in the form of Olympic gold medalist Louis Smith!

When we were lucky enough to meet up with Lucy, of course we quizzed her on all things fashion and beauty but also, just how do we get the Mecklenburgh bum?!

‘A lot of interval training. A lot of squats. Someone tweeted me yesterday actually saying, ‘I just did your 24 squat work out and I didn’t even know there was more than one squat.’ Mix up your training and don’t stick to what you always do. If you keep doing what you always do, you are never going to change your body so mix it up and try something new.’ We’ll take these tips on board!

The capsule collection is inspired by Lucy’s fun style and the collection consists of summer dresses, midi skirts and bodysuits that will provide the perfect holiday wardrobe!

When we spoke to Lucy, she told us that her favourite spring summer wardrobe piece was a pleated midi skirt as ‘it’s so easy to get into spring summer when you can cover your legs but still feel really girly – and it suits everyone as well’, so there’s no wonder she’s designed a few of her own.

We gave Lucy 60 seconds to get ready! The end result? ‘I’d go for ripped jeans and a t-shirt and then I’d think about how can I make it a bit more interesting. So whether it would be like a print somewhere or stripes, I’d maybe put a print on my shoe or on a waistcoat or jacket or something like that or a bright clutch bag or tote or something. I’d start with basics and build it up.’

And what does Louis love her in? ‘Red. He loves me in red.’ But what he doesn’t understand? ‘Baggy jumpsuits. They say that you look like you’re in pyjamas. He’ll say, “Are you not getting changed out of your pyjamas?’ Nice one Louis!

But out of everything from her collection with PLT, what’s the one thing she wants the most? ‘There’s a yellow dress that has cut outs and is pleated just past the knee. It’s really lovely.’ Sounds perfect for picnics in the park!

Prices start at £15 so there’s something for everyone in the collection! Shop now at prettylittlething.com
