It's no secret that Cheryl has been keeping a low profile since her split from Liam Payne, but it looks like the singer is now ready to come back into the limelight. More than a month after having stunned in a bright orange dress, the 35-year-old star posed on Instagram wearing a cropped hoodie, over-the-knee boots, and a pair of inside-out denim shorts by Unravel Project that don't seem to have been chosen at random.
While they might at first look just like any other pair of shorts (albeit worn inside out), there's one tiny but certainly not insignificant detail that made all the difference: the quote written on her right pocket. "To create something new, you must first destroy," it reads.
Of course, this might all just be a coincidence. But as she is starting a new life as a single mum, we would love to think that Cheryl decided to send an empowering message to her fans, showing them that good can also come from heartache. Ahead, get a closer at her cryptic ensemble, and then shop her exact shorts.
