You can rent Laura Whitmore’s £229 Love Island Aftersun dress for just £29

Few things signify that summer is here more than eating a Mr Whippy with a flake on a pebbly beach, but Love Island being back on our TV screens every evening is definitely one of them. Whether you’ve been fervently keeping up with the islanders latest romantic escapades or not, one thing we can all agree on is that host Laura Whitmore‘s on-screen wardrobe is to die for.

One dress in particular that the show’s host has worn this LI season caught our eye immediately. By super chic and sustainable Parisian label MIRAE, the 60s-inspired A-line white sleeveless mini dress features a heart-shaped cut-out on the front, making it the perfect dress for the host of the hottest dating show around.

While the Dolly dress retails for €200 (approximately £170), Laura Whitmore rents out her wardrobe on fashion rental platform HURR, which means you can wear it for just £31 – that’s a saving of £139, which in our minds is a no brainer, especially considering how little we really rewear occasion dresses. But even better is that all the proceeds from renting out Laura Whitmore’s Love Island dress go to charity, so not only are you doing your bit to save the planet by not buying brand new, your money will go to a good cause, too.

The dress is perfect for a night out or a party (now that we can do those again) and would look great with flats or heels. Laura wore hers with a dainty thin chain necklace and lots of colourful gemstone rings and bracelets, but with such a statement neckline, there’s really no need for a necklace with this number – we’d opt for statement drop earrings instead.

More recently on the Love Island spin-off show, Aftersun, Laura wore a floral number by ROTATE Birger Christensen which she rented from Rotaro, see below.

Though the dress retails at £229, you can rent it for as little as £29 for four days via Rotaro.

The Love Island host has also rented out two other dresses on the HURR platform, a Simone Rocha x H&M red and white check dress and a black and white puff-sleeve polka dot mini from Faithfull The Brand, making her something of an ambassador for renting occasionwear.
