Cheryl Cole’s Print-On-Print Outfit: Grazia Fashion Team Give Their Verdict

13 June 2012 by

Cheryl Cole has been working hard over the last few weeks as she promotes her latest single ‘Call my Name’ and you know what that means? Lots of headlines! We're only paying attention to the fashion headlines, mind.

For starters, we oohed and ahhed when she was pictured filming her new video while wearing numerous clashing outfits consisting of a rather revealing pair of high-waisted leopard print briefs, a floral bandeau top, a tropical print Altuzarra blazer and Max Kibardin heels. Then she appeared on The Voice in a pair of snazzy Roberto Cavalli trousers before giving us a right eye-full thanks to a fluro jumpsuit designed by Pam Hogg for last weekend's Summertime Ball. So it appears that Chezza’s stylist is taking a new direction with the pop starlet’s wardrobe, and who’s to argue?

Cheryl Cole's got a new fash-ssion

Then the Geordie princess turned up at a BBC Radio 1 yesterday and surprised us once again. She continued her passion for print clashing with cute Paige Denim polka dot jeans teamed with matching print shoes and a heart print top. Phewf! Here at Grazia Towers, we're divided on whether like this outfit or no.

Chez has indeed followed the ultimate print clashing rules by keeping the colours tonal and mixing similar prints. Besides, let's not forget print clashing is a super-hot trend right now. But we can’t help think there is something that just isn’t working. Is it one print too far? Perhaps the songstress should look to her fashionable peers such as Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger, Beyonce and Solange Knowles who've been print-clashing successfully recently (check them out in the gallery above). 

Below we bring you the verdicts from Grazia’s fashion team and don't forget to leave your comments in the box below too...

“I am all for Cheryl’s printsravaganza. She’s kept things simple in black and white, and let the simple prints take centre stage. My only complaint is those unforgivable hair extensions.” Caroline Ferry, Fashion Assistant

“Cheryl is sticking to the print clash rule with the complementary colour palette. But the shoes are a problem.” Catherine Nieto, Fashion Editor

“Those polka jeans are SO cute they could have (and maybe should have) been centre stage – with a crisp white shirt and black pointy courts, this outfit would have wowed.” Hannah Almassi, Deputy Fashion News and Features Editor

“I really like Cheryl, and I like that she takes risks, and has her own style, but I can’t help but think that the heart print top is slightly out of place in this outfit and too young. I would expect my fifteen year old cousin to be seen in this. But then again, at least she isn’t stepping out in a transparent boob tube a la Rihanna or flashing her boob on stage. Yes, Madonna, we’re talking to you!” Lily Russo, Shopping Editor
