It is truly remarkable that producers were able to make two movie-musicals entirely from ABBA songs. Enter: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. The first Mamma Mia! movie stole hearts with its perfect rom-com portrayal of intricate relationships and unexpected surprises thanks to Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried. Not only did the movie tell a great story with great music, its costuming and romantic Greek setting breathed new life into eccentric, bohemian style. As the sequel hits theaters today, you can dress the part with these Oscar-worthy looks inspired by our favorite characters.

Inspiration: Sophie

Played by Amanda Seyfried, Sophie is the bubbly yet conflicted protagonist that dominates the screen. Sophie’s style is relaxed and breezy as she prepares for her upcoming nuptials in Mamma Mia! Recall “Our Last Summer” and get a look to match by way of a floral-embroidered peasant top paired with blue waist-tie shorts and white sandals. And, of course, you can’t forget the iconic floral diary that Sophie carries around as she recounts her mother’s glory days.

Get the look: Floral Embroidered Top, $48, Tres Chic; Bullet Journal, $6.99, Barnes & Noble; Lydda Shoes, $59.99, Aldo; Waist-Tie Shorts, $26.97, Nordstrom Rack.

Inspiration: Donna

Sam Carmichael, Harry Bright, Bill Anderson: the names of Donna’s past lovers and Sophie’s possible fathers revealed through diary snooping. The men are also the faces that take Meryl Streep's Donna by surprise when they appear on the small Greek island, leading to Donna’s solo performance of the song that started it all, “Mamma Mia.” Recreate Donna’s classic look with capri-length denim overalls, a breezy white blouse, simple Keds, and boho hoops.

Get the look: Denim Overalls, $44.99, GAP Factory; Wasabi+mint Tie Top, $24.99, GraceAnna's Boutique; Champion Originals, $39.95, Keds; Mint Daybreak Earrings, $72, Hello Lucky.

Inspiration: Rosie

Who could forget the iconic scene when Donna and her longtime gal pals, Rosie and Tanya, surprise Sophie with a spirited performance of “Super Trouper.” The most memorable part of the scene, though, is the extravagant get-up donned by the Dynamos trio, with head-to-toe shimmery blue jumpers complete with 1970s bell bottoms. Now, this look is pretty hard to perfectly replicate, but consider it inspiration for a more modern approach. It’s time to get your hands on this stunning silver sequin jumpsuit and pair it with falling star earrings and a stacked-heel platform. All that's left to do is make it a night you won’t forget.

Get the look: Alessandra Sequin Jumpsuit, $495, Baanou; Oscar de la Renta Drop Earrings, $380, Nordstrom;Saint Laurent Platform Sandal, $995, Neiman Marcus.

Inspiration: Tanya

Finally, we come to the third Dynamo, the sophisticated and witty Tanya, who makes her presence known as soon as she steps foot on the island in a whimsical printed halter dress. Capture this memorable look in an updated way with a gorgeous Diane Von Furstenberg dress that would also fare well for any upcoming summer weddings. If you really want to commit, go the extra mile by adding a blue tutu like the one Tanya sports in the famed “Dancing Queen” number. (Whether you go out in public is up to you.)
