They're really not bothered what you think of them, or their outfits.

Little Mix are not mincing their words when responding to critics of their provocative stage attire.

As their fame has continued to grow, the ‘X Factor’-winning girl group have repeatedly been criticised for their revealing fashion choices while performing live, most recently at the One Love Manchester tribute concert.

The group are remaining defiant in the face of their critics, though, and have revealed they’re determined to stick to their fashion guns.

Speaking to Metro Entertainment ahead of their performance at the Capital Summertime Ball, band member Jesy Nelson said simply: “I say - sod off!”

Jade Thirlwall continued, slightly more diplomatically: We wear what we wear and we love it. We’re confident in ourselves and I think that should be praised.

“We are who we are and as long as we’re comfortable and happy, that’s all that matters.”

Following a performance of ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ during last year’s ‘X Factor’ live shows, Jesy shut down her critics when she shared a photo on her Instagram wearing a short dress sporting the message: “Too provocative?”

Last week, Little Mix unveiled their latest music video for their new single, ‘Power’, which sees them in their trademark racy attire.

The video also features cameos from ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ stars Courtney Act, Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 and Willam Belli and the group’s mums, as well as grime star Stormzy, who contributes an empowering verse to the remixed track.

‘Power’ serves as the fourth single from the band’s latest album, ‘Glory Days’, which topped the UK albums chart upon its release last year.
