Little Mix’s ‘Wings’ Music Video: Look By Look

If you’re not familiar with the faces below quite yet, you better hurry up and hop on board the Little Mix train, STAT. These former X Factor UK contestants-turned-girl group are already bonafide pop stars overseas (32 million YouTube hits, NBD), and now they’re on the fast track to conquering the U.S. music scene with their debut single “Wings.” The addictive R&B-inflected dance track officially dropped last year, but as of today those of us stateside can finally buy the song for ourselves. And with an equally awesome video, we can’t really think of a better way to give Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall a true American welcome than to break down all of the rad outfits the girls wore in “Wings”. So what are we waiting for?! Let’s do this!

The vid kicks off with up-close-and-personal shots of each of the girls— in other words, the perfect band intro AND a foreshadow of the individual looks to come. From Leigh-Anne’s red lips to Jade’s major lashes, it’s clear the beauty inspiration is just beginning.

They might both be wearing denim, but Perrie and Jade give the fabric a decidedly personal twist with different patterns and cool accessories. Perrie rocks a studded jacket from Topshop over a pink floral bralet from LavishAlice, which she paired with pale dyed denim cutoffs. Jade accessorizes her chambray sleeveless top (score a similar style at American Apparel!) with a Topshop bowtie and a printed skirt. Oh, and throw in a backdrop that perfectly corresponds to their looks? Now THAT’S an ensemble.

Paging Jennifer Grey! Jesy and Leigh-Anne each sport crazy patterns in their individual dance sequences, channeling a modern take on the ’80s Flashdance vibe with splashes of color, bright denim, and tons of studs. Although Leigh-Anne’s top comes courtesy of Brit brand Lazy Oaf, these outfits are essentially a DIY just waiting to happen…so if you’re into it, head to the thrift store, break out the glue gun and dye, and go for it!

Next up the girls come together for a group dance session, each dressed in a VERY different statement look. Whether it’s Jade leopard pants or Perrie’s killer white Doc Martens, these aren’t just performance outfits— they’re clothes that pretty much EVERYONE would wear. As much as we love outrageous music vid ensembles, sometimes it’s refreshing to see outfits that fans (read: us) can rock in everyday life.

Speaking of stuff we want in our closets, let’s talk about the amazing athletic style happening here with Jesy’s jersey, studded denim shorts and red Docs! Leigh-Anne’s getting in on the trend, too, dressed in high-waisted shorts, printed bustier, and snapback. Then there’s Jade, who’s giving her look a girly spin in a flannel, American Apparel suspenders, and a hair bow, and Perrie, who’s decked out in a black fringe vest, white top, and bowler hat.
