Are Cheryl Cole's print days over? This was the question Grazia Daily was pondering earlier this week as the Geordie popstrel stepped out in an unusually pared-back, neutral and fashion-forward ensemble. After crazy print-clashing and fearless flesh-flashing frocks during the promotion of her latest single (hello metallic Pam Hogg jumpsuit!), we were rather intrigued by the apparent style 180.
But! As if Chez had read this very site, she was back to her print-tastic best last night, wearing a dress that wouldn't look out of place in Katy Perry's wacky wardrobe. Hitting London town for a little more partying, CC was joined by her Girls Aloud pals Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh as well as - GASP! - her possibly, probably new man, American dancer Tre Holloway. And what's that she's wearing? A punchy Batman print!
Cheryl's silky, stretch jersey dress is super-cool in that retro kooky way so we're proud to see her balancing the minimal outfits with the more riotous, especially as she's kept the focus on the print by teaming it with a pair of simple black heels and zero accessories. What's more, comic prints are all the rage right now so this is an ideal choice for keeping her trend-setting credentials alive.
Plus, while the outfit last week consisted of top-notch designer garb, from a Proenza Schouler clutch and Helmut Lang skirt to Narciso Rodriguez shoes, she returned to her highstreet-loving ways yesterday. Yep, the fab dress comes courtesy of Lazy Oaf for ASOS and costs a purse-friendly £60. WOW! We recommend getting it before it goes: www.asos.com
