Opting for a preppy style, Nicole paired the ensemble with Doc Martin style chunky boots to toughen up the look.?

The singer seemed downcast and failed to raise a smile as she headed out of the taxi and hid her long raven black tresses under a black trim hat.

The Don't Cha hitmaker sported a bright red lip for the occasion and complemented the look with a black smokey eye.?

Step out in style with combat boots like Nicole's

Nicole Scherzinger displayed some pretty fab footwear when she stepped out in London wearing these Gucci boots. The leather beauties featured a chunky lug sole with wide laces and a striped band around the ankle.

Combat boots have recently come back in style thanks to the resurgence of 90s fashion and designer labels like Christian Louboutin, Prada and Gucci have all mastered their interpretation of the look.

Nicole wore hers with a simple black dress and a denim jacket as part of her off duty attire but we would just as soon team it with skinny jeans and a slouchy sweater topped with a biker jacket.

Sadly this boot is all sold out, but shop Gucci's latest shoes via the link on the right. Then head down to the edit below for alternatives including a lookalike style by Kendall & Kylie for less than $100.

Her shopping trip comes after she joined her X Factor act, Kevin in Glasgow earlier this week.

Nicole stunned fans as she took to the stage at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena to cheer on her former act and 2012 X Factor winner, James Arthur.

James was performing at the arena as part of his UK tour and offered his old mentor the chance to introduce Kevin to the crowd.

The pair had given the X Factor hopeful some much needed encouragement before his big stage performance.?

Kevin's performance last Sunday had all four judges to their feet following his rendition of Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Child.?

'I would never see someone like you,' Louis began. 'Everything is real about you... It's so unusual to hear a Jimi Hendrix song on X Factor.'?

Echoing his sentiments, Sharon gushed: 'You've stunned me for what you have evolved into... and I know this is what you love to do. To see how you've evolved is incredible and I loved it.'

The rocking performance left Simon stunned as he shared: 'This was honestly incredible... as Nicole would say you put your balls on the line.'??

Completely in awe of her act, Nicole enthused: 'You are the Muhammad Ali of this competition' as she got to her feet in excitement.?

Kevin will be competing for the X Factor crown against Grace Davies and Rak-Su, and with all three singers embracing different types of music and singing styles it is all to play for.

The final is set to take place much earlier than anticipated this year, as the ITV series attempts to get out in front of Strictly Come Dancing, whose final is two weeks later.

The X Factor final begins on Saturday 2 December at 7:05pm on ITV
