Gwen Stefani may not have her hubby Blake Shelton by her side during this new season of The Voice, but she is still bringing the same show stopping fashion ensembles she's become famous for.

On Monday, the "I'm Just a Girl" singer, 53, returned to the judges' panel alongside Niall Horan, John Legend, and newcomer Reba McEntire for what is sure to be another nail-biting talent battle.

The season will certainly look different, since it's the first without founding judge Blake as part of the judges, but his wife is making up for it by bringing all her musical expertise and her great fashion sense back to the show.

For The Voice's 24th season, Gwen made sure to kick things off with a bang, opting to dazzle in a whimsical, black and white checkered look.

The outfit consisted of a fitted crop-top paired with a matching mini-skirt and floor-length-coat, plus matching pointy-toed heelsand Gwen accessorized it with fishnet tights plus a slicked-back ponytail adorned with, of course, a checkered bow.

"Feels good 2 b back in the @nbcthevoice chair," she wrote in one of several Instagram posts celebrating the return of the show, and fans were quick to take to the comments section with plenty of excitement and compliments over her look.
