Before earning her claim to fame, singer Alexandra Burke never experimented with her sense of style.  She would immediately go for black clothes and no accessories to compliment what she had on.

Alexandra says:  “I always say to myself that I shouldn’t be afraid of colour – especially now that the sun is out.  So I have tried to step away from black more recently.”  As a result of Cheryl’s fashion wisdom, Miss Burke has started to add lots of vibrant jewellery to her growing wardrobe collection.

“She’s been an incredible mentor to me – she’s taught me to dress for the size and body shape you have, but most importantly to feel comfortable and enjoy what you’re wearing.”

Now she shops in a variety of stores including our favourite high street chains such as Topshop – whose jeggings remain a prized possession of hers.  But Alexandra did make it clear that when she’s buying a great pair of heels, it must be designer, with Christian Louboutins and YSL at the top of her list.

Talk about ‘mix and match’!  Well I guess she has to take some perks of being a celebrity.

If you find yourself sticking to dark colours, why not try some of Cheryl’s fashion tips yourself…
