For those who don't know, Cheryl Cole is an English singer/songwriter who was a part of girl group Girls Aloud. Girls Aloud had 20 consecutive top ten hits in the UK. When Girls Aloud went on hiatus, Cole went solo making two hit studio albums. She is currently a judge on the X-Factor, a singing competition (think American Idol for those in the US).
Cole is definitely a style icon. Through the years her fashion sense has grown and she has finally stepped into her own in terms of her style. Her fashion reflects her personality which is fun, flirty, and sophisticated. She has a very muted color palette in the form of nudes, blacks, and soft grays but spices it up with details and accessories. Cole's best style ability is her understanding of layering. She is great in knowing what works together and what doesn't and when its just enough. Have a look at some of her best style choices this year.
