I’ve never, ever, shopped in Mango before and can’t even remember the last time I saw a Mango shop in real life yet it appears the high street retailer is making a massive comeback. After hearing the zillionth fashion blogger talk about the lastest pieces from Mango I decided to take a look myself.
While I’ve heard the instore shopping experience is nothing special, browsing the store’s online shop face is easy, stylistic and convenient. Like seriously, take a look! Unlike it’s many competitors (H&M and New Look to name but a few) Mango manages to create an online shopping experience almost on the same levels as ASOS. But most importantly, Mango really are killing the game right now. On trend items with little modern quirks fill the website along with gorgeous silhouettes, amazing colours and stand out prints. This all sounds like an ad (I wish!).
So while I was enamoured by almost everything on the website I restrained myself, only buying two pieces (the second one will be featured in a blog post shortly). Photographed above is this amazing silver a-line skirt. In my true magpie form I was instantly drawn in by the metallic and thought this would be a really cool stand out piece to have in my wardrobe. I have to admit – the material is seriously stiff so I’m wary about it’s practicality (can I sit down in it? Who knows?) but hopefully after a few washes it’ll loosen up a little.
I can’t wait to get styling this piece and to be honest I think it’ll be pretty easy to do. Without a doubt, the skirt will always take centre stage but it can be worked into both a casual day outfit or a more night out look depending on what it’s paired with!
Let me know your thoughts on the skirt below and whether you’re adding some metallics into your wardrobe this season…
