How to Get Love Island Style

July 10, 2019

GOT A TEXT!

Love Island 2019 might be almost over for another year, but one thing that will remain (whether the couples stay together or not) is the fashion.

From Amy Hart’s nineties-inspired denim button-up dress to Maura Higgins’ sultry bralets, you’ve got to hand it to I Saw It First (the show’s official clothing sponsor) – there were some seriously dreamy pieces on our screens this summer.

No, I’ve not been in the country but yes, I’ve streamed the show at every opportunity. Ahem. 

I mean, it’s kind of one of those where you don’t necessarily want to tune in but you just can’t help it because it’s so very entertaining. Right?

Whether you love Molly-Mae Hague’s influencer look or would do anything to replicate Lucie Donlan’s surfer chic, I’ve got you covered. Here’s how to get Love Island style.

I Saw It First Fashion

Amp Up the Lace

Love Island style 101: summer lace is just as pretty as it is practical for warmer temperatures. Not only does it look badass, but it keeps you feeling nice and cool during those humid summer nights.

Why not take inspiration from Lucie and opt for this White Striped Lace Bodysuit teamed with high-waisted denim shorts and naturally wavy hair

Alternatively, if you’re heading OUT out and want to dress to impress, this White Sequin Mesh Jumpsuit worn by Arabella Chi is a surefire winner.

Oh, and be sure to stick to understated accessories in order to let your summer lace stand out and do the talking.

Denim is Your BFF

Inject a bit of nineties nostalgia into your summer aesthetic with Amy’s Mid Wash Button Through Denim Dress. Just add white chunky trainers and some quirky sunglasses for a fun, retro look.

Need a pop of colour? Not to worry – this Nude Colourblock Denim Jacket (also worn by Amy) goes with almost anything. 

If you want to make the ultimate style statement, wear a dress underneath the jacket that picks out one of its hues with hooped silver earrings and strappy sandals. 

Did someone say summer sophistication?

Captivate with a Co-Ord

An easy way to instantly capture Love Island style is by rocking a cute co-ord. 

With her Kardashian bod, Anna Vakili seems to be the Queen of the two-piece. I particularly loved it when she wore the Black Chain Detail Strap Crop Top and matching trousers. Classy? Yep. Feminine? You betcha.

Prefer a louder ensemble? Fear not – Amber Gill’s Blue Slinky Snake Print One Shoulder Bralet looks fabulously fierce with the corresponding flared trousers.

Either way, just add heeled sandals and a metallic clutch to turn heads for all the right reasons.

Embrace Chic Tailoring

Got a work’s do? Or just want to look sassy AF in the office? 

Your professional wardrobe can also get a Love Island style makeover in the form of Molly-Mae’s Orange Double Button Belted Blazer Dress. (But be sure to pair it with tights to make it office-appropriate. Obvs.)

Alternatively, are you heading out for date night or bevvies with the lasses? Maura’s White Plisse Strappy Jumpsuit is sure to wow. Combine it with stompy heels and bold lips for a bright and beautiful aesthetic.

Cowl Necks Are Seriously Cool

Move over the round, square and high necks – because a new neckline is in town thanks to the Love Island ladies.

Amber’s Orange Cowl Neck Mini Dress sizzled at the recoupling post-Casa Amor just as much as Elma Pazar’s Pink Cowl Neck Ruched Satin Mini Dress when her and Maura had a confrontation about Tom.

The perfect wee dress for summer evenings at home or abroad, pair yours with barely-there heels, Insta-worthy makeup and big and bouncy curls – and it won’t be long before the compliments come a-rolling in.

Opt for Animal Print Swimwear

Achieve Love Island style and let out your wild side with animal print swimwear inspired by the cast members.

Amy’s Orange Tiger Print Knot Front Bikini Top and High-Waisted Bottoms add just a touch of personality into your daytime pool look. (Okay, a lot of personality…)

Me personally? I’m obsessed with Molly-Mae’s Green Snake Print Monowire Bikini. If only I Saw It First shipped to New Zealand. Sob.

Choose Statement Accessories 

If you’re not a fan of the clothing but still want to nod to Love Island style, simply grab yourself some oversized sunnies a la Amber or layered necklaces inspired by Molly-Mae.

Footwear-wise, these White Classic T Bar Wedges scream Lucie and Anna has been seen strutting around the villa in these Black Clear Strap And Block Heel Sandals.

It goes without saying that minimalists need not apply here.

Rocking Love Island Style

Love Island style is brave and daring as well as being fashion-forward. Why? Well, it’s essentially about less is more.

I get that you might find the designs a little intimidating to start with, and perhaps out of your comfort zone, but all you need is confidence to be able to rock them. 

After all, life’s all about experimenting with new things, right? You never know, you might surprise yourself.
