The former Girls Aloud star stuck with her trusty black and white palette for London’s X Factor auditions, wearing a boxy Jil Sander Spring 2014 basket-weave cotton crop top with a split at the front and back with black tuxedo trousers.
Meanwhile in LA, we spied new mum Kim working a soft long-sleeved Hanji crop top with a daring cut-out back.
Kim teamed her white hot crop with a figure-hugging Wolford pencil skirt and tan Hermes heels.
The cut-out crop is the ultimate in shopping outside of the box, and we’re loving the racy update on what is now a standard summer wardrobe staple.
For a more demure look, a la Cheryl, shop Topshop’s V Neck Cutaway Crop (£36). Pair with plain or printed cigarette pants, smart courts and a colour pop envelope clutch for the perfect desk-to-dinner outfit.
