We're officially two weeks into the Summer Of Love (aka Love Island's return) and there's one thing that's been on our mind all week: where is Laura Whitmore getting these killer outfits? Here's what we know.

ITV 2's hottest dating show is now in its 8th season, and is better than ever with a bigger villa, smaller bikinis (hello underboob) and more twists and turns than ever before. For the first time ever, islanders will be treated to a wardrobe of pre-loved fashion from this year's partner, eBay.

Love Island has employed the expertise of stylist Amy Bannerman, who spoke with Grazia to explain the four major trends she's selected for this year's contestants to wear: Blurred Lines, Love Me Forever, Y2K and Dopamine Dressing. 'I wanted to choose four themes that encompassed everything that I would want to include,' she says. 'The main one I wanted to include was Love Me Forever, so it's all of the pieces in your wardrobe that you buy and keep for the rest of your life, like the perfect jeans, a great denim jacket, loads of really incredible black dresses from brands like Gucci.'

But the contestants aren't the only ones aiming to give preloved fashion a new lease of life, Whitmore is also embracing rewearing. In case you were wondering where Laura Whitmore's outfit was from, she burst onto our screens in an upcycled red suit that she last wore in South Africa for 2020's Love Island.

Taking to Instagram, the presenter captioned a sneak peak at the new look: 'we've done something a bit special with an old favourite! #relove'.

The suit, a bespoke garment made by British tailor Joshua Kane, featured a cropped jacket and full-length trousers - this year, Laura and her stylist Emma Lane reworked the three-piece by chopping the trousers into shorts, rewearing the heart-shaped waistcoat, swapping the shoes for some sky-high Saint Laurent platforms and rose-tinted sunnies by Cutler & Gross. It seems Whitmore's styling team have been grafting hard this summer, too.

Further proving she's all about the second hand 'fits, Laura chose a Vintage '00s Jean Paul Gaultier butterfly top paired with vintage Moschino jeans from fashion's favourite vintage dealer Nordic Poetry - completing the look with vintage earrings from Brick Lane's Here After Vintage - for her first appearance on ITV2's Love Island Aftersun.

Another Aftersun look was another stellar vintage find sourced from Found and Vision by Laura's styling team. The kitsch-AF red mini dress, complete with frills, lace and hearts (oh my!), is a Meadham Kirchhoff piece and looks incredible on Whitmore - so much so, that fans are calling her the 'female Harry Styles' in this look, and honestly we're getting serious Love On Tour vibes. While we sadly can't find this dress for sale at the moment, we highly recommend setting an eBay alert for new Meadham Kirchhoff listings.

If you're looking to keep up with all her best looks this season, look no further...
