Cher Lloyd's Style: Chav or Icon?

All my British readers will be able to relate a lot to this, and possible my foreign readers which watch hit tv series X-factor online. Cher Lloyd is a 17-year-old a-level student, who's got through to the live shows on the X-factor. She rose to the world's attention when she sang Soldier Boy's 'Turn ma swag on' for her audition and ever since she's been known for her stand out fashion choices!
So i've decided to write a post about is she a chav with her style, or is she a new fashion icon for young women?

She looks stylish enough in these photos for a 17-year old in these photos, she's got a very unique style and is known for walking around stage in stiletto high heels and baggy trousers!

But in these photos, she's clearly a typical british 'chav' walking around in baggy grey tracksuit bottoms, wearing adidas jackets and hi-top sneakers. The only glamorous thing is probably her Paul's Boutique bag!

As the show goes on, she's having clothes given to her, so she's beginning to look more stylish (like the last 3 photos). But still wears her signiture grey tracksuit bottoms & Hi-tops.

What do you think of Cher Lloyd's style? Is she the latest fashion icon or the latest chav?

sorry but i deffo think shes more of a chav! the only good clothes that the public see her in are ones given to her by the shows stylist! and funnily enough, an anagram of cher lloyd is OLD CHERYL!
long time now speak?! how are you!!

CHAV!

Cherry Pullinger said...

I can't decide wether I like her style or not, there are hints of it I like such as the more girly, glamorous parts but I don't really like the chav twist.

Milliee said...

i don't think the world is as easily divided into 'chav' 'emo' or 'scene' or anything like that anymore. everyones doing their own thing, and i reckn shes got quite an eclectic style, and if she feels good in what shes wearing, then s'all what matters:)

I would say neither. She seems like a kid with money and a topshop clone. I've seen it all before! I actually find her style quite boring and over the top/attention seeking.

Krystal said...

I love her style, she seems like she is just down with being herself!

Yeah she's an overdramatic and a weirdo, and in some cases utterly chavtastic..but she's different. She's got her own style and she's confident in her self. And confidence is sexy. Good for her I say!

Marcia B. said...

OOO what is Chav? LOL i am from Canada...i find her style very cute!

abby said...

chav chav chav chav chav. she infuriates me

Eden said...

I don't really like what she is wearing in any of the shots, but there is someting interesting about her. Maybe she is gonna get better:)))

kirstyb said...

i think shes adorable - shes only young and she can wear what she wants x

Sparkles said...

I am so glad you did a post about Cher! I basically adore her, mostly for her talent rather than dress sense… but I am increasingly finding myself wanting to dress like a chav at about 10pm every Saturday night…!

Haha, good thing I live in London parttime so I actually knew what you meant by chav! I think she does a nice eclectic mixing here (but loving her non-chav stuff far more :).

Jude said...

P.S. I can *finally* follow you - yippee! Thanks to my computer doctor! :)

josephine said...

GILBERT/GANDA said...

I should say that she is stylish in her way and I love her old looks too!

fashionable is not all about glamour and brands! its about how can you keep on your signature style and how can you look stylish with them!

thanks for your comment to my blog dear!

She is a young fashionista

Shebelle said...

she's pretty good. if we look back at audition 1 - sure there's no stylist to dress her up, her choice of wardrobe is pretty amazing. xox

cristinahh said...

When it comes to her style I'm on the fence whether I like it or not. I think she's young and her style will improve as she gets more into the music industry. Some of the outfits look really cute. I like her when she's all casual or all girly. But when she mixes the styles, it look kind of awkward.

Laura said...

I think it's the attitude that she wears it with - she's so confident and just the right about of cocky that a popstar needs to be. Personally, I love her, but I'd never consider wearing practically all of the things she's worn on the show so far - but that's not to say she doesn't look great.

i just don't like that girl. what is with the rapping and the crotch grabbing??

I think her fashion is more chav than icon. She is a pretty girl, I just wish she's wear a little less make up.

C.M said...

she's pretty chavvy to be honest.. but she does look good when she's all dolled up in her stylish clothes.
definately NOT a fashion icon in the making!

MsNana_ said...

it is pretty hard to say, because some of her styles though look alien, are still fashionable, isn't that what fashion is about, being able to glide and stroll in your sense of style without caring what people think??

But about Cher's style, i don't love and i don't hate it. earlier this year, most magazine i read talked about their perception of the next trend being 'baggy trousers and heels' that exactly what she is doing.

i have a feeling this 'chavish' look might be the next big thing

Emma Jade said...

Occasionally I see an outfit of hers with a glimmer of style hope, but at the end of the day I think she'd just a chav!
Great blog hun!

Catarina said...

She does look cute in the last 3 pics but I think she's too much like Cheryl...She's a mini Cheryl Tweedy.

Little Scribbler said...

She ain't my style but she's definitely a bit of both on the chav v icon scale...

quirien said...

i think she looks a little like amy winehouse mixed with cheryl cole ghetto stylish? i loved her look at the audition!

Emily Hughes said...

I don't know!

sometimes i think she can be as she wears adidas jackets on stage, when she should really be looking like the other girls and more glam!

But then... when she sang her first real song she looked really lovely...

please follow me! i would be so grateful

gillian73 said...

Chav, with a very bad attitude for a girl so young!

Madison's Assortment said...

CHAV! The occasions that she has looked ok is when she has clearly been styled, and even that is rare.In my opinion obviously!

Jade said...
