Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has really upped her fashion game over the last few weeks and with the X Factor entering its second week of live shows this Saturday, she's showing no signs of stopping. However, it's not just her on-screen looks that have caught our attention. In fact, her off-duty ensembles are proving to be just as noteworthy and her latest offering is certainly no exception.
We clocked the 31-year-old songstress and mentor to the girls' on this year's show as she turned out up to the X Factor studios in London to take in the rehearsals rocking a very cool get-up with a killer accessory to boot.
Sporting a casual checked shirt and jeans the star looked effortlessly chic, keeping her make-up polished but low key. The thing that really left us in a fashion daze was her unusual but very pretty choice of accessory; a leather headband, which offset her full bun perfectly.
The ultimate style throwback, kitsch headbands were big news back in the '40s but modelled in sleek black and paired with a monochrome shirt, Cheryl has brought hers bang up to date.
Ideal for disguising a bad hair day, we don't know about you, but we're so going to copy Cheryl on this one.
After spotting her seriously cool add-on, we scoured the web to find one of our own. While we're sad to report that her actual version from luxury hat and accessory label Eugenia Kim - which costs £190 - is sold out, you'll be pleased to hear that there are hoards of amazing high street homages with affordable price tags on offer.
We've whittled down just a few of our favourite styles for you to choose from. Check them out below and you'll never be afraid to step out between washes again. Hoorah!
Black PU Leather Headband, £4, New Look
Take Cheryl's leather look a step further with this edgy studded number.
Teal Velvet Headband, £6, ASOS
The trend may have kickstarted back in the 1940's but it was a big deal in the '90s too. Nail the look with a velvet version.
Dogtooth Printed Headband, £20, Johnny Loves Rosie
If you gor for a print, make it a chic check or dogtooth in a muted colour palette to keep the look sleek.
Major thanks to Cheryl for giving us the easiest style update we've ever seen...
