Fast fashion chains have been stepping up their game in 2016. And while it’s great to pick up on-trend pieces for a fraction of the designer takes, it’s not that great to be the third person in the office the Zara dress that everyone owns.
Allow us to make the case for Mango: the Spanish brand you probably shopped once or twice and maybe forgot about.
The quality is arguably better than a lot of the fast-fashion out there (it’s also slightly pricier, with main pieces starting at $59.99). The fall collection is stocked with nice wool knits and long sleeved blouses, plus wide leg trousers and really great (and really expensive looking) faux-fur coats.
Below, our five favorite looks you can shop in store and online right now.
