Do you have the X Factor?

x factor

X Factor – it’s a guilty pleasure right? Whatever people say, however much they may claim they dislike it, everyone loves to watch the audition stages (my favourite part!). But once they are over and you’re starting Judge’s houses – you’re hooked and have to see the show through to the end! You need to know what the acts sing each week, who will go, what will the judges wear, and most importantly – what put downs will Simon Cowell come out with next?

I love me a bit of X Factor. I have been a fan of the show from the beginning, and watch every year without fail.

This year, I was so pleased to hear that Cheryl Cole Fernandez-Versini was back. I love Cheryl. She is my ‘girl crush’. I love her style, her delicate features, the way she is so passionate about what she does and how she is so encouraging to wannabe artists, and can tell them that they’re bad, without being mean.

I recently took a quiz to find out what X Factor judge I would be – and was so thrilled with my result:

High Street Cheryl

Someone like Cheryl, I would suspect, wears designer clothes all the time. For someone like me, who cannot afford such luxuries, but would like to copy her style, it’s a bit difficult.

Now, considering as the quiz has spoken and I am Cheryl, I thought it would be fun to choose a couple of outfits that Cheryl could wear on the show. One outfit is the glam we are used to seeing Cheryl in, the other is something a little more of my style.

BOTH outfits are from High Street stores and cost less than £75.00 each.

Here is what I have chosen:

White One Shoulder Bodycon Dress – £39.00 from Miss Selfridge

I really like this dress. It’s uber stylish with its one shoulder and monochrome. As it’s a bodycon dress it also means that it that clings tightly to create a smooth figure and show off those svelte curves.

Black Side Zip Peep Toe Boots – £29.99 from New Look

I love these little peep toe boots and think they will compliment the dress well.

Coral Belted Swing Dress – £15.00 from Matalan

I love this dress. It’s very much my style. I love the vintage, 1950’s look and this is very much in keeping with that style, if not a little more modern.

Nude Patent Court Shoes – £55 from Next

I love the style of these court shoes and think they will compliment the swing dress.


What do you think? Which outfit do you prefer? Would you like to see her wear something like this from the High Street on such a high-profile show? I’d love to know your thoughts.
