Is Mango Even Better Than Zara Right Now?

Don't get us wrong, our love for Zara shall never wane, but have you noticed just how great everything in Mango looks right now? Even without us celebrating the greatness of the Great British High Street all week, we'd feel woefully guilty to not let you in on our new affordable go-to.

The scoop on the other Spanish label's radical fashion transformation is down to a switch-up in strategy for 2016. So the plan now is to focus on really trend-smashing, super-sharp drops every two weeks (a much quicker turn around than before) and to highlight these standout additions via very credible mini campaigns. Take Chinese supermodel Liu Wen in the latest lookbook-style shoot for the store's Soft Minimal collection, or the fact that Kendall Jenner kicked off the year's rebooted approach.

On a literal level of how this will affect your wardrobe, you're now looking at a more responsive version of Mango: If the boudoir trend is seriously taking off (and it is), then, boom, you'll not be left waiting for plenty of slip dresses and lace-trimmed camisoles. We're particularly keen on the pared-back pieces for working wardrobes and the excellent lineup of unique footwear and handbags that look way beyond their friendly price tags. You want a babouche shoe? Consider it done.
