With Halloween just around the corner, Katy Perry was seen getting into the swing of things early.

The pop singer went for a spot of shopping in Soho, New York, and stood out from the crowd as she wore a rather fetching big black hat.

Her headgear may be a popular feature with witch costumes, but there was nothing gruesome about her appearance on Monday afternoon.

Katy, 27, looked pretty cool in her laid back attire as she was joined by friends in the trendy shopping district.

She often wears racy and creative outfits when she performs on stage but Katy kept her curvy figure well covered for her jaunt around town.

She wore a multi-coloured jacket which she teamed with a red gilet, black trousers and a low cut top.

Earlier in the day, Katy and her entourage had picked up some food at Parisian themed bistro Pastis.

With her appetite fully satisfied the singer shopped until nighttime and her trusty bodyguard carried an umbrella to protect her from the rain.

Katy may have been dressed a little more conservatively than her fans are used to but she was more adventurous on Sunday night when out with on/off boyfriend John Mayer.

The high profile pair, who been keeping everyone guessing with their complicated romance, headed out for an intimate dinner at the Pearl Restaurant in New York on Sunday night.

Wearing an eye-catching, sheer green dress, it didn't seem like Katy was exactly trying to keep a low profile.

The floor-length, lace gown was completely see-through and the star added what looked like an olive green swimsuit underneath to preserve her modesty.

The Firework singer added a pair of clumpy black boots, leather jacket and again wore her big black hat.
