Rock a ruched dress like Harley wearing Oh Polly
The first Love Island couple from this year's series has split. Harley Brash and Chris Taylor are no more!
She did the best thing you can do after a break-up - put on a gorgeous dress and show him exactly what he's missing!
Said dress is from Love Island villa favourite Oh Polly, and we love the curve-clinging fit and ruched detailing. The midaxi length is super flattering, and when styled with leg-lengthening perspex heels, she knocked our socks off at the beauty bash she was attending.
Click (right) to buy it now. The blush pink hue of Harley's is very pretty, but it's also available in other colours too.
Or if your wardrobe is missing some ruched action, our edit below is the place to go. From PrettyLittleThing right up to Dolce & Gabbana, we've got all budgets covered...
But the pretty estate agent didn't appear too heartbroken as she left the Mayfair establishment wearing a blush pink bodycon dress which suited her perfectly.
Her male companion was dressed in a striped T-shirt and black jeans and sweetly held the car door open for her as their night came to a close.

Chris and Harley confirmed they had gone exclusive with their romance during a candid interview with Caroline Flack on Aftersun last month.
During the interview Caroline asked the pair: 'Are you allowed to date other people?', to which the couple replied: 'No.'
Cheering the couple on Caroline continued: 'So you're exclusive? Congratulations!'
Speaking about their future as a couple in a recent interview with MailOnline, Harley revealed: 'It's been going really well, it's still very early days, we're excited to get back to the UK and see how things go from there...
'We've been spending every day together. We're going to go on a proper date together. I haven't noticed the age difference at all, I'm quite mature for my age and Chris can be a little immature!

So far the other 2019 couples have remained together, with winners Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea still going strong alongside runners up, and the show's longest enduring couple Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague.
Fellow finalists Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard and Ovie Soko and India Reynolds have also stayed smitten so far.
None of the couples from the 2018 series of the show have remained together.
2017 couple Dom Lever and Jess Shears are the big success story of their series, tying the knot last year and announcing they are expecting a baby.
Their co-stars from two summers ago, Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt are also still going strong, moving in together earlier this year.
