There's a bit of a clichéd saying in the fashion world that "three's a trend", i.e. if you spot an item or style on three separate occasions then it's deemed to be a 'thing'. Naturally it's an idea that has been over-used over the years, but when three members of team Who What Wear walked into the office last week all wearing jackets from Mango, we couldn't deny that, in this case, it's pretty spot on.
If we're honest, we've had a bit of time apart from Mango over the summer, but like every good relationship we didn't give up and, lo and behold, the fashion tides have turned and we've fallen in love with the brand all over again. In summary: Mango's autumn/winter collection is just so good, with plenty of chic separate and winning accessories begging to be added to our wardrobes. Their jacket offering, however, is clearly the biggest success story of the season.
There are four jackets in particular that seem to be spiking right now. Three of them are styles owned by Who What Wear editors, but we couldn't help throwing in Mango's tweed jacket, which has been cropping up on a number of feeds recently. From a '90s-inspired blazer to a fuzzy textured showstopper, scroll down to see the four Mango jackets we're rating this season.
Style Notes: Coming in a '90s-inspired silhouette, this speckled blazer (which comes with a matching skirt FYI) has been spotted on many of our favourite influencers. You can either keep it neat and pair with the matching skirt, or dress it down with straight leg jeans and sneakers.
Style Notes: I was inspired to buy this fuzzy jacket after I saw it on Paris' coolest It girl Leia Sfez. Cosy, warm and with a '70s edge, this will look good with everything from flared denim to floral midi dresses.
Style Notes: The lines between jumpers and outwear have been blurring this season, as seen in Mango's popular tweed jacket. It might look like a classic cardigan, but it will be sturdy enough to throw over skinny roll necks and knitted dresses.
Style Notes: This particular style is favoured by Who What Wear's Emma Spedding, who rates it combination of heritage checks and Wild West fringing. This is a great option for those who prefer a little shape, as the jacket comes with a cinching belt.
