13 Of The Most Extra Looks That Olivia Buckland Has Ever Served
We can only aspire to be this extra
Ever since Olivia Buckland first landed at the Love Island villa in a whirlwind of bikinis, tatts and teeny tiny denim shorts, it’s fair to say that her wardrobe has become the stuff of legend.
Remember when we gotLiv and fiance Alex Bowen to play Mr & Mrs? What a time to be alive...
The girl just knows how to rock an outfit with the Buckland twist, and everything from cool and casual looks to full-on floor length gowns can make an appearance on her style inspo-packed Instagram.
But if there’s one thing that Liv does best, it’s looking extra AF.
She’s not afraid to go all out with her looks to make a serious statement, and her style is definitely not for the fashion faint hearted.
So it’s time to channel your inner Ms Buckland-Soon-To-Be-Bowen and chuck away your plain tees/boring jeans, to embrace the most extra and ultimate OTT looks that Olivias ever served. Queen.
1. Just your everyday demure lace bralet and jewelled belly dancer skirt combo.
But remember that you won't reach full levels of extra unless there's a glitter parting and space buns involved, too.
If Tinkerbell was an Instagram model, she'd probably look like this.
2. Some v understated metallic 70s flares with an easily missed graphic sweatshirt.
Forget skinny jeans and a hoodie when you're heading to pick up some bread and milk. This is the only everyday supermarket look to go for.
Just don't ask us how you avoid VPL and camel toe in these bad boys. Olivia is a qualified pro.
3. Always subtle on the red carpet in clashing satin prints.
Nothing says 'just casually popped by to say hey' quite like doubled up stripes and floral - especially when there's statement specs and a red lip involved.
Scientists have recently proven that ONLY Olivia Buckland can pull off this outfit, so do not try this at home.
4. A completely sheer lazy bodysuit, perfect for all weathers.
When you live in Britain, it's standard proceedure to only leave the house when armed with three jumpers, fluffy socks and a duvet coat.
Unless you're Liv of course, in which case it's all about #FreeTheNipple while looking fierce af.
5. Blend into the crowds with a gold-on-gold sateen tracksuit two-piece.
Just having a lazy day today? Don't worry, you can still be extra when getting dressed. All you need is a shiny gold tracksuit.
And don't be fooled into thinking you can pair it with trainers like some kind of basic bitch. You need heels. Black ones, duh.
6. If you're wondering what to wear with your matching camo look, it's snakeskin boots.
WWOBD? That's What Would Olivia Buckland Do, if you were wondering, asnd the answer is probably a cropped camo tracksuit, teamed with animal print boots.
Then you just need some neon detailing, a vampy dark lipstick and a street art-covered handbag to mute things down a little. E-X-T-R-A.
7. A technicolour dreamcoat we can only assume is on loan from Joseph.
Honestly, it's hard to know what's going on here. But whatever it is, it obviously looks incredible.
8. This black on black playsuit with drama-free sleeves and a neckline that could possibly kill a man.
A trip to the cinema? Popping over to see your nan? Swinging by for a cheeky Nandos? All of these are the perfect opportunity to commit to a look.
In Olivia's world, that look is something that's a cross between the catwalk and a Disney villain's signature style.
9. Every shy girl's dream - a leopard print suit.
Nothing says wallflower like the unassuming, humble leopard print suit - especially when styled with some very confusing nude illusion heels.
If you're going for the full extra effect, you're also gonna need to grab some killer purple lipstick and metallic body art too, but that just goes without saying.
10. Oh this old thing?
Don't mind Olivia, she's just ready to take the dog for a walk in this unbelieveable Disney princess gown that looks like it's made of actual fireworks.
This one isn't even all that extra, it's just full on AMAZING.
11. Wondering how to style your bright turquoise snakeskin bodysuit?
For those days when your mum's got friends, family and neighbours coming round to visit for a cuppa, you obviously don't want to put too much effort in.
Just go for the classic, modest, shy and retiring gold velvet flares. SO FIERCE.
12. The minimal vibes of this black and red striped moment.
You probably can't call yourself extra until you've rocked this look. High waisted trousers and a matching crop top in bold black and red stripe? Oh sure, no probs.
And it's just not the real Olivia Buckland deal until there's a stunning smokey eye and dramatic up do as the cherries on top.
13. And last but not least, the Halloween look of all Halloween looks.
Low effort costume, what? The Little Mermaid, who? SLAY, OLIVIA.
