Lucy Mecklenburgh is one of the most stylish celeb mums out there, so the hype around her family fashion collection with Very, featuring gorgeous, beachy co-ords, BBQ-ready dresses perfect for Spring/Summer, plus outfits for your little ones too, is definitely big. It launched on the April 24th and it's incredibly hard to not want every single fabulous look.

This is Lucy's first collection with Very and it includes 69 clothing items for mums, UK sizes 8-20, and kids, ages 9 months to 7 years old. Each piece was designed to look and feel good, combining effortless style with quality materials that are breathable for the warmer months. What's even better is that all of the childrenswear compliments the womenswear, so you and your mini-me can look the part together.

When reflecting on her debut collection, Lucy said “My entire Very collection was selected so that mums and kids alike can have those easy, throw on pieces, but are still on trend and fashionable. I love the sage green jumpsuit, the gingham midi dress, and the cream linen jumpsuit, all of which are easy to throw on, and let you feel comfortable yet stylish.

"With wedding season fast approaching, I will definitely be wearing the fuchsia maxi dress, it is so gorgeous, and an absolute statement piece! I’ll be dressing the kids in the collection too – Lilah will love the orange mini dress, and Roman is all about the t-shirt and short sets.”

Our favourite pieces from the Lucy Mecklenburgh collection:

This collaboration is definitely going to be selling fast, with the trendy looks ranging from around £15 to £70, so we've put together a list of our favourite pieces to help you find the perfect look for you and your little ones from the collection.

Best of the Womenswear:

The perfect pair of casual jeans, these slim leg ankle grazers have a flattering high rise cut that really give off 'laid-back but fabulous' vibe. They're machine washable too, so they're effortless in style and upkeep. Pair with the Shirred Tie Shoulder Linen Cami for a stunning look.

Whether you're going on a picnic or a BBQ, the Gingham Short Sleeve Tie Waist Midaxi Dress is a style winner. The monochrome look is beautiful and we love the flowy hem. The smocked bodice is ideal for the early part of pregnancy too.

Button Through Jersey Henley Top

Price: £25

With a soft feel and comfortable fit, this Button Through Jersey Henley top will look good with shorts, jeans, or even skirts. It sits on the top on of the hips for a casual but sophisticated look that you can wear anywhere.

The dress that will have you on every best dressed list, the Lucy Mecklenburgh Puff Sleeve V-Neck Maxi Dress in pink is just dreamy. Made from a linen and viscose blend, this dress has so many gorgeous details and is ideal for Summer parties, weddings, and events.

With this stunning Ruched Bust Swimsuit, you can go for a dip or just look fabulous laying by the pool. We love that it has a good stretch to it and the inclusion of detachable straps which help with breastfeeding. This is a holiday must-have.

Add a pop of colour to your Spring/Summer wardrobe with this fun tiered orange number. We love the fitted bodice and flared mini skirt, plus the cute button details on the front. This Strappy Tiered Dress will definitely be a beach staple for lots of us.

With a classic collared neckline and button down design, this utility-inspired Twill Jacket is a must-have for a cool Summer evening. You can wear the sleeves however you want and the fit is so flattering on most body types. We really like this over Lucy's Lace Trim Cami.

Best of the childrenswear:

This adorable Boys Leaf Print T-Shirt and Short Set is ideal for a holiday look. It's designed to be breathable and comfortable, with a tie waistband on the shorts and crew neck that will make getting them dressed a lot easier.

Made from soft-to-touch cotton, this lovely little dress with frill details is ideal for an evening meal on holiday or a Summer birthday party. The flowy tiered hem makes this perfect for twirling and dancing around.

If your little guy is one cool dude, this comfy Tie Dye Sweat And Short Set is definitely for him. The cotton mix construction and stretchy design means it's ideal for the Spring/Summer season.

With pretty embroidered detailing, this denim playsuit is robust but pretty too. The elasticated waistband will make sure the fit is comfortable and easy to whip on in a rush. It's easy to wash as well.

Lucy's collection also features some fab multipacks like these, ideal for throwing into your child's suitcase for your Summer getaway. Most are made from quality, breathable cotton and they all come in fun colours.

You can get T-shirt multipacks and shorts multipacks too.

A rawrsome hoodie for any dino-obsessed child, the Dino Print Zip Through Hoodie is made from a soft, breathable cotton blend to keep your child cosy and looking cool. We love how fun this design is. The zip is ideal for little fingers too.

How sweet is this purple Towelling Vest and Short Set? With lovely frill trims and a trendy square neck, any kid is going to want to strut their stuff in this, plus, most importantly, they'll feel comfortable in it too. Made from a towelling material and designed with a stretchy waistband, getting this on them quickly after they've been in the pool will be easy-peezy.

Is Lucy's collection with Very for everyone?

We'd say this family fashion collection is incredibly versatile and designed for all types of women and children. For a debut collaboration, the style and size range is great and we love the variation of colours and prints. All the items are advertised as 'true to size' which is promising, plus the quality looks like it's amazing for the price too.
