Cheryl Cole at the Manchester X Factor auditions

Cheryl looked absolutely gorgeous in her monochrome outfit

Cheryl Cole has really upped her style game on this year's The X Factor audition tour but we reckon her latest look has definitely raised the bar. The singer and judge on the hit show wowed the crowds who turned out to see her at the Manchester set of auditions in her sleek monochrome get-up, which single-handedly proves you should never underestimate the power of black and white.

Cheryl opted for a sophisticated pair of black high-waist trousers that, with their slightly oversized cut, hung on the star's petite frame perfectly, creating cool ruched hems at the bottom of the trouser legs. She then paired them with a minimal shell top complete with sexy front split but, thanks to the height of the trousers, she managed to pull off the tricky cropped style with ease, looking seriously chic in the process. And that's no mean feat...

Cheryl Cole make-up

To polish off her gorgeous look, Cheryl donned a pair of stunning white Rupert Sanderson courts and a chunky chain-style collar that homes in on her trademark edgy sartorial style. Her beauty was on-point too with her locks tucked neatly behind her ears as she kept her make-up classic in neutral tones. What a pro, huh?

With so many amazing looks in so little time, we can't wait to see what Cheryl will wear next... Watch this space.
