We don't like to play favourites, but there are two high-street stores that are strides ahead of the game here in the UK, and they're undoubtedly in competition with each other: Mango and Zara. Both are now just as fast as the other onto the latest trends (from the street and the catwalks), and both can surprise and delight us with hidden gems in-store and online. There are few things we relish quite as much as bringing you the most impressive buys from each of these Spanish megastores, but it's not that often we hold the two up against each other to contrast and compare.
So with the start of the spring/summer 2017 season just around the corner (HURRY UP!), we thought it a good idea to trawl these the brands' new-in sections to see the most important trends that they're behind, how well they're doing them and where is best for you to place your hard-earned moola this month. Without further ado, keep reading to see the best new-in pieces from Zara and Mango. All we can say is good luck deciding what's best—it's no easy task!
