Love Island Contestants

Before we get into who our favorite Love Island couples are and why it’s obviously Millie and Liam, I think we can all agree that what really makes this show great is the over-the-top festival fashion that all the contestants wear to lounge around the pool. Between the teeniest of swimsuits with a full beat to the most vibrant of ultra-short shorts, there are so many ways to make this costume your own. Either way, you are sure to look fit AF. Crack on.

As if they weren’t already iconic enough, our favorite music duo showed up to this year’s Met Gala totally in love while looking as if they had just rolled out of bed. If you’re looking for love in a cozy place (see what I did there?) then all you need to replicate this look are a few quilts or blankets and a beanie.

The Haunting of Bly Manor’s Dani & Jamie


You don’t need a closet stocked with cool vintage finds to replicate Dani and Jamie’s 1980s style. Pull out your denim, stare longingly into your partner’s eyes, and there you go — you look like The Haunting of Bly Manor’s ghost lovers. Just do yourself a favor and, uh, try to stay away from any bodies of water.

This Halloween, put on your philanthropy hat and dress up as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the cover of Time. Meghan is wearing a white shirt with matching high-waisted pants while Harry is in all black. Simple, classic, chic — and easy to replicate at home.
