Little Mix chatted with Fashionista.com yesterday to ask them about their style, stealing clothes from their boyfriends, and of course: Why the ’90s? (Would you believe Lucky Charms cereal has something to do with it?) Make sure to read the full interview below!
Fashionista: Since winning the X Factor, you’ve started working with a team of stylists–how has that changed your style?
Jade: I think the main thing is that since the beginning, we’ve kept our style, but just made it better or exaggerated it a bit more with the help of stylists. It brought us together more as a group as well, I think.
Leigh-Anne: Also, we didn’t really know all these different designers before. The stylists have really helped with our knowledge, what looks good, loads of different things.
You girls recently talked with Seventeen magazine about your style icons, and you mentioned Kelly Kapowski and Fresh Prince. What is it about the ’90s that you like so much?
Jesy: It’s colorful, it’s fun, it’s just what we’re about.
Perrie: I like the shapes of it, I like the high waisted jeans, I like the high-waisted denim skirts, I like the crop tops, and whenever I look at pictures of me as a baby with my mum, I just think everything she wears is amazing. I’m obsessed with the stuff my mum used to wear, so maybe it’s that.
Leigh-Anne: The ’90s are just cool, it’s just the best era ever for everything. TV Shows–Kenan and Kel, Sister Sister, Saved by the Bell. And food–like Lucky Charms, they don’t even do those anymore in England! Just everything about it.
You also mentioned that you admire men like Lil Wayne and Perrie’s dad. What is it about men’s style that influences your personal style?
Jesy: We like to boy it up–we’re not really, really girly girls. We like to wear baggy jeans, or baggy tops, and be a bit tomboyish from time to time.
