She's setting the sustainability example

Love Island is back in our lives and we couldn't be more excited about what the next ten weeks will bring. Despite being used to the tried and tested Love Island format, there are some positive changes being made in the new series - including the historic move that has seen the show shed their relationship with 'fast fashion' and opting to shout about second-hand fashion after signing up eBay as its first pre-loved fashion partner.

Islanders will now wear pre-worn garments to raise awareness of the damaging consequences of fast fashion, sparking a movement to embrace pre-loved clothes instead of wear it once and never again.

And it looks like host Laura Whitmore is leading the way, as she gave a nod to her outfits of the past by rewearing her Love Island 2020 outfit for the first episode of the new series.

We LOVE.

You may remember Laura's love-inspired 2020 jumpsuit that she wore when Paige Turley and Finn Tapp won the show.

However, she chose to switch it up a bit for 2022, opting to only wear the bespoke Joshua Kane waistcoat with a pair of matching red shorts. You can shop the look below.

Laura shared a snap of her outfit on Instagram, with the caption, "Details ❤️

"We’ve done something a bit special with an old favourite! ✂️ #relove."

For the Love Island 2020 final, Laura wore this incredible tailored red suit from designer Joshua Kane. The heart design was made bespoke for Laura and we absolutely love the detail. The suit itself is quite pricey, but if you want to bag Laura's red pantsuit look for less, look no further than this version from Boohoo.com.

For her latest appearance on Love Island: Aftersun, Laura wore this funky black blazer dress with puff sleeves and cute flower buttons. Laura brought some high fashion onto the show this time as her dress was by designer label Birger Christensen. The designer tag of this dress also comes with a designer price, £420 to boot. Luckily we've found a gorgeous dupe from Boohoo with the same floral button detail.

Laura's pink dream of a dress on this week's Aftersun is by Australian fashion designer Alice McCall. We love the cute dotty print, but it does come with a price tag. You can buy her exact dress from Oxygen Boutique for £325, or you can steal her look for less from ASOS for £20 - phew.

For her second Love Island: Aftersun appearance, Laura stuck to the pink and black theme of last week's dress in a cool pink suit. The suit was created by Irish designer, Joanne Hynes, but it's sadly not available to buy yet. Boo. But don't worry - we've found a super-cute high street version.

The ensemble is from designer Hazan Hejazi and costs £189. If you don't fancy splashing out on a pricey playsuit, we've found a similar version on the high street for less.

Angie Smith - aka Holly Willoughby's stylist - stepped into previous Love Island host stylist Nisha Grewal's shoes for Love Island 2020, and we loved everything she had to offer.

In an Instagram story, Angie said, "So excited to be working with @thewhitmore for @loveisland."

We saw a range of looks from Angie last year, from gold slip dresses to red power suits, Laura certainly brought the runway to the villa in 2020.
