Fashion Items Which Prove Mango

Mango is quickly overtaking Zara in the style stakes. There, we said it. And boy, is it good to finally get that off our chest…

But before you judge our bold (and undoubtedly controversial) claim, let us assure you that it wasn’t an easy decision to come to.

Zara delivers ‘it could be designer’ pieces faster than you can say ‘fashion’, pretty much invented the meaning of elevated basics and gave Thursday the honour of being our favourite day of the week…

But Spanish rival Mango has been steadily climbing the high street charts over the past few months with the help of sell-out arthouse inspired earrings, that checked coat and the circle buckled boots everyone coveted last autumn.

But this season, Mango finally confirmed its status in the style stakes. The launch of its debut sustainable collection, ‘Committed’, introduced us to ruffled poplin dresses, supersized palazzo trousers and the linen bucket bag of dreams.

And just weeks ago, the Spanish giant welcomed a second line, aptly named ‘Premium’. We’re talking COS-meets-Céline fashion at high street prices. The oversized clutch made its way into our shopping basket without a second thought just moments before the wrap-around blouse in deep purple joined the cult accessory.

And just like that, Mango garnered the title of our most-beloved high street store.

Still not convinced?

 

1. The Supersized Clutch

Yes, we couldn’t believe it either. This very clutch is the sartorial genius of Mango and it’s destined to be a sell-out. We’ll be teaming the tangerine-tinged accessory with wooden mules and denim flares, how about you?

 

2. The ‘It’ Hue

This time, we’re talking yellow. It’s undoubtedly the hue that keeps on giving this season. There’s no greater colour to don when feeling blue and this dress is bound to crack a smile amongst even the most poker-faced of colleagues.

Team the silky number with sorbet pink mules and a bold red lip. Yes, this season we’re set to colour-block our way to sartorial success…

 

3. The Reimagined Crop Top

There are bows aplenty this season (they’re almost as popular as flared sleeves). And we cannot wait to get our hands on this linen blouse.

We’ll be teaming the fashion piece with high-waisted flares, supersized earrings and wooden mules. Oh, and a tan would be lovely. Who’s up for booking a holiday?
