The songstress was pictured on her way to catch a flight to New York from Los Angeles on Monday (10 March) and clearly decided to go with comfort over style in her unusual get-up.
While it's often considered a faux-pas to wear socks and sandals, Rita shunned the rulebook and even opted for the most eye-catching pair of knee-high socks she could find.
She also proved her loyalty to fashion house DKNY by wearing a pair of shorts emblazoned with the famous brand name and a matching T-shirt, which was layered underneath a patterned leather bomber jacket.
There's so many trends going on here we don't know where to look first!
Despite the fact she was only travelling on a plane for the day, Rita still wore her new long hair extensions that she debuted at an Oscars after-party earlier this month.
She also stepped out with a full face of make-up, including her signature red lippy.
Given her ultra casual outfit, we're surprised she didn't just ditch the foundation and fake hair for a cap and some sunnies!
With glammed-up make-up and tomboy style clothing, Rita breezed through LAX with a big smile - possibly because she recently wrapped up filming for her latest music video.
Last week, the 23-year-old revealed to fans that she was shooting the music video for her single 'I Will Never Let You Down' and judging by her Instagram snaps, there are going to be interesting outfits aplenty.
It was also rumoured last week that Rita has turned down the chance to be a judge on The X Factor in order to focus on her music career.
But although we may not be seeing the blonde bombshell on our TV screens, all is not lost, as Cheryl Cole confirmed last night that she will be returning to The X Factor alongside Simon Cowell.
