GOT A TEXT! Our favourite TV show might be over for another season. However, one thing that will remain (whether the couples stay together or not) is Love Island clothing.
From Paige Turley’s sultry tailoring to Siânnise Fudge’s pretty puffed-sleeve frocks, you’ve got to hand it to I Saw It First (the show’s official clothing sponsor), there have been some seriously dreamy pieces on our screens of late.
Whether you’re heading on a summer or winter holiday, these 20 Love Island clothing pieces will help you stand out in the sunshine.
Amp Up the Lace
First things first, Love Island clothing seems to be championing lace again for the winter series in South Africa. Just as pretty as it is practical, lace is a great on-trend option for those warm humid nights.
Oh, and be sure to keep your accessories minimal to let this fabulous fabric take centre stage.
Denim is Your BFF
Inject some nineties nostalgia into your holiday aesthetic with Sophie Piper’s Mid Wash Oversized Distressed Denim Jacket (*) thrown on over a long strappy vest top.
Alternatively, rock these Mid Wash High Waisted Ripped Shorts (*) a la Shaughna Phillips with a cami and flip-flops for an easy yet stylish daytime look.
Want to make the ultimate style statement? Team this White Zip Front Denim Playsuit (*) as worn by Paige with neutral wedges and hooped earrings.
Did someone say summer sophistication?
Power to the Puffed Sleeves
After first finding their way onto the style scene for Spring/Summer 2019, puffed sleeves have stuck around for Autumn/Winter 2019. Fun and feminine, this romantic detailing is ideal for a winter holiday and has been featured in plenty of Love Island clothing pieces.
Our girl Siânnise seems to be the Queen of the Puffed Sleeve, relying on them to bring a touch of sass to all her holiday evening looks. For instance, how stunning is this Khaki Bengaline Bardot Twist Front Bodycon Dress (*)?
We’re also loving the Camel Bengaline Balloon Sleeve Bardot Dress (*) teamed with heeled sandals and a metallic clutch as a way to epitomise effortless elegance.
Embrace Chic Tailoring
Additionally, your professional wardrobe can get a Love Island clothing makeover in the form of Shaughna’s Fuchsia Baroque Buckle Belted Blazer Dress (*).
(But be sure to pair it with tights and flats to make it office-appropriate. Obvs.)
On the other hand, are you heading out for a holiday date night or bevvies with the lasses? Jess’ Stone Utility Pocket Belted Dress (*) is sure to wow. Combine it with stompy heels and bold lips for a mesmerising take on military chic.
Cowl Necks Are Seriously Cool
Move over the round, square and high necks – because a new neckline is sticking around after SS19 thanks to the Love Island ladies.
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.
Shaughna’s Wear Me Any Way Leopard Print Swimsuit (*) adds just a touch of personality into your daytime pool look. (Okay, a lot of personality…)
Personally, we’re obsessed with Siânnise’s Green Snake Print Monowire Bikini (*). Sss-sizzling.
Choose Statement Accessories
If you’re not a fan of Love Island clothing but still want to nod to the trends, simply grab yourself some sparkle in the form of Shaughna’s Gold Diamante Belt (*) or Siânnise’s Gold Jewel Dusted Drop Earrings (*).
It goes without saying that minimalists need not apply here.
Rocking Love Island Clothing
Above all, always remember that Love Island fashion is about being brave, daring and on-trend.
We get that you might find the designs a little intimidating to start with (and perhaps out of your comfort zone). However, all you need is confidence to be able to rock them. And it won’t be long before you’re turning heads for all the right reasons.
Here’s to a wonderfully stylish winter holiday!
