No wardrobe is complete without a wear-forever coat – and Mango may have just come up with the most perfect one.
In a neutral beige hue with an oversized cut and made of a wool mix, the Mango coat is already a classic and timeless design, which makes it a great forever coat. We already know it will never go out of style as it combines quality with classic design features, but our interest was really peaked when we saw it draped over the ever-stylish shoulders of Alexa Chung, who wore it to the The Fendi Set book launch party at the Royal Academy of Arts on 8 February.
Alexa Chung loves to rock a masculine cut, so it’s no surprise she picked up this high street buy, thanks to its oversized and boxy shape. She balances things out by pairing it with a feminine dress with frills, Mary-Jane style heels and a pearlescent clam-shaped handbag. To add one last eye-catching touch, she finished off her outfit with a chunky gold chain necklace.
At £179.99 it’s no bargain buy, but it’s also not so eye-wateringly expensive that you’ll need to sell all your worldly possessions to be able to afford it. The Mango coat has even been spotted on Sienna Miller and Katie Holmes in the past, so it most certainly has the A-list approval.
It’s available in sizes XS-XL, but thanks to Alexa’s strong influence, it’s already sold out once. So if you like the coat, you’ll have to move fast to bag it now that it’s back in stock – we reckon it won’t be around for long!
