Haim has always had a penchant for the vintage. Their 2013 album Days Are Gone is a glorified compendium of lite-FM rock that we still have on repeat. In their video for “If I Could Change Your Mind,” they really dial up the retro vibes, referencing '70s American Bandstand and '60s girl groups with their killer synchronized dancing. Haim even brought in Aaliyah and the Backstreet Boys’ choreographer Fatima Robinson to assist with their moves, which is another kind of throwback. But even with their spectacular dancing, we're just as interested in the clothes.

The video opens with the sister trio standing in a circle over their instruments and cloaked in black—both sartorially speaking and in terms of the set lighting. Director Warren Fu—whose previous client list includes Aaliyah, Daft Punk, and the Strokes—plays around a lot with lighting in the video. The ladies Haim stick to a minimal color palette: black boxy leather jackets with black bottoms.

Then, we see a flash of red, and the sisters pull out some Supremes-ready arm moves while wearing a lighter—but still coordinated—look. Danielle wears a silver Acne moto jacket with black jeans and a white graphic tee, Alana is in black cutoffs with a white mesh top, and Este is rocking a white, paneled sheer shirt buttoned up to the collar with a black A-line skirt. The girls even matched their Acne pistol boots. But throughout the video, HAIM make sure not to overshadow their finger-snapping and dramatic head turns with their clothes.

Take the next scene, where all we see is brief glimpses of their faces and their dancing silhouettes. Danielle’s makeup game is super minimalistic, meanwhile Este is all about the rust-colored smoky eye and crimson lipstick—a pretty smoldering combo. Alana sticks to a low-key cat eye. But there’s no denying the real star here: their HAIR. Fatima knew just what the world needed: a black-and-white GIF of Haim whipping their hair. (Side note: It's too perfect that their band name is one letter away from hair.)

Then we close with Haim in full-on rock mode, playing on a stage in front of a super '70s light-up sign bearing their name. Appropriately, they’re back in their black biker jackets. Alana went all leather with a pair of matching black shorts. Este is rocking another white button-up with her A-line black skirt, and Danielle keeps it simple with a pair of black jeans and a white tee.
