Don’t you just love it when you’ve been thinking about buying an item for a while, and then when you finally find time to sit down and purchase it it’s gone into sale (and it’s still in stock in your size). I think that’s what they call a win— and it’s exactly what happened to me this week with my current wish list of Mango items.
I know they say it’s sensible, but I’m not normally one for buying pieces at the very beginning of the season. I usually wait a few weeks until the weather starts to change change, and I can really get a feel for what I actually want to be wearing right now. Which is why I’d been considering my basket of spring/summer Mango items for a while. This week we’re finally seeing evidence of the warmer season being here to stay, so I went to push the button on some timeless pieces to refresh my wardrobe when I discovered my favourite high street brand (and the favourite of celebs and editors everywhere) had just started an up-to-50%-off spring sale.
I’ll admit sometimes I’m put off by a sale, especially high street, as they can be full of trend-led items you’re likely to regret later. Either that, or you really have to think ahead and buy off-season pieces to wear in the future— smart, but always slightly risky. On closer inspection of Mango’s flash offer, though, I was seriously impressed. Turns out it’s a goldmine of classic pieces from the current season to wear right now, including so many of the items I already had on my wish list.
There’s chunky sandals, celeb-approved wide-leg trousers and strappy heels that would go with all your wedding-guest outfits; as well as classic denim cuts and expensive-looking dresses. To be honest, at a time when we’re all having to tighten our purse strings, it’s refreshing (and a relief) to see such impressive items go into sale so early on in the season.
Of course, there’s an awful lot of pieces in Mango’s full sale edit— so I’ve scrolled through absolutely everything for you and edited it down to twenty-five pieces I believe, from a fashion editor’s expert perspective, will elevate your current wardrobe and are truly worth your money.
