X Factor Fashion!

The UK has been gripped by the X Factor every Saturday and Sunday nigh for the last five weeks – and we have another seven weeks to go until the eventual winner of the TV show is announced.

On Saturday (7th November), Lucie was ejected by Simon’s decision to go to deadlock. This happens when the judges can’t agree who should leave the competition so the contestant evicted is the person who received the lowest amount of public votes. John and Edward have been consistently blasted for being completely unable to sing or dance and Simon has been very vocal about his disdain for the Irish duo. However, viewers were baffled when instead of saving the very talented and beautiful Lucie Jones, Simon chose to go to deadlock and let the public decide yet again this week. At the time of publication of this blog, 50 complaints had been made to OFCOM, with more expected to be registered over the coming week.

As soon as the result was announced, the Twitter community was once again swamped by #XFactor talk. One twitterer said, “If Simon Cowell ever says ‘this is a singing competition’ again he should be taken to court under the trade description act.”

Lucie’s shock exit overshadowed (to me at least) Stacey Solomon’s new sexy look. Donning wet look leggings, skyscraper heels and a shiny top with a black cardigan slung suggestively over her shoulders, Stacey was transformed from overwhelmed single mum from Dagenham to a polished pop star.

Can this look be translated to normal people? I think yes!The general opinion seems to be that wet-look leggings are mainly for younger women and I must admit that I am inclined to agree. Women who are less daring can stick to more sensible cotton fabrics to stay on trend. Her outfit as a whole is not necessarily one you might want to adopt unless you want lots of attention on a night out but elements can certainly be adapted for every day wear, such as wearing a long cardigan on one shoulder for example.

Normal people wanting to imitate this look might also wish to consider wearing a longer t-shirt. Most fashion authorities seems to agree that in the real world, your top should cover your bottom and the very top of your thighs to avoid showing off the legging sagging slightly in the crotch area… definitely not a good look!
