Nicole Scherzinger might have been laying low over the past few months but now she's officially back on the fashion map after a string of covetable ensembles. However, we think her most recent look might have just topped the lot...
We clocked the 36-year-old singer and former Pussycat Dolls front-woman out and about in London sporting a very cool, off-duty outfit.
Made up of washed-blue skinny jeans, black asymmetric strap courts and a cropped black shirt, she looked effortlessly chic. However, it's not what she wore but what she did with her clobber that has really earned the songstress a place on our elite style-crush list.
Instead of fastening her shirt like the norm, Nicole opted to only use the top button at the collar, leaving the rest of her shirt open and floaty. Wow.
Flashing her toned abs and a sexy cut-out bralet, this is one daring look that we reckon has paid off big-time. So much so, we're tempted to do some lunch-hour crunches to prep our tums for some shirt-caping action of our own...
If showing copious amounts of skin just isn't your thing, don't fret, you can still rock Nicole's look for yourself. Simply swap the bralet for a silk camisole or a lurex vest top; after all, this look is all about the shape the undone shirt creates.
We don't know about you but what's even more appealing about this look is that we can finally start wearing all of those shirts that we've been meaning to replace the button's on but, let's face it, will never get around to sewing.
In the name of casual style; Nicole, we salute you.
