10 Items Your Spring Wardrobe Needs

Spring Summer 2016 trends

With Spring just around the corner, it’s almost time to ditch those Winter layers and say hi to the style heroes that’ll serve you all season.

These real beauty of these transitional must-haves is that you can mix and match them with items you’ve already got hanging up in your wardrobe, meaning nailing the upcoming Spring trends won’t break the bank (hooray!)

Check out what pieces we can’t wait to pick up on payday…


1. Camel Waistcoat
Lipsy Love Michelle Keegan Camel Waistcoat
Sleeveless jackets are making a comeback in a big way this season. We love this classic camel waistcoat from the new Lipsy Love Michelle Keegan collection – great for layering over dresses or teaming with skinnies and heels.


2. The New White Shirt
Lipsy Tie Blouse
A must-have for 9-5 power dressing, the humble white shirt’s been given a makeover this season with collar details, asymmetric hems and feminine fabrics. Be the best dressed in the boardroom with this gold lace up number from Lipsy.


3. Arm Candy
