While it’s still pretty uncertain what the summer actually holds for us, what we can be sure of is our favourite high street retailers continuing to do what they do best – bringing out brilliant summer collections that we can lose ourselves in.
Clothes can often be the cheery antidote to trying times, so if you do have the privilege of being able to spare some money on a wardrobe update or two right now, we highly recommend doing so. If you’re anything like us, you’ll be missing aimlessly browsing the high street shops hard by now, so even if you don’t want to spend, may we suggest taking a trip down the virtual high street instead – that’s online browsing purely for the sake of online browsing, and it’s the perfect form of escapism for the sartorially-minded. Either way, let us be your guide to the latest on the high street and you won’t miss a thing.
If you doing fancy splashing some cash, Mango’s brand new summer collection has just landed and it’s full of pared back basics, minimal, relaxed tailoring (perfect for WFH Zoom calls) and soft neutral and earthy tones ideal for creating some calm in our rather topsy-turvy world.
While most of our lives are currently spent indoors, we’re looking for elevated basics that are both comfortable and chic – pieces that strike the perfect balance between comfort and style; clothes that make us feel put together and like we’ve made an effort, without going the whole hog and feeling a bit ridiculous getting dressing up to the nines for no one except our cat. We also want garment that are going to last – we might not get a huge amount of wear out of them now, so we want timeless designs that aren’t going to go out of fashion by this time next year.
Mango’s new collection walks that line perfectly – muted, earthy tones combined with oversized, relaxed shirts and trousers, with the odd jazzy print to bring some wow-factor to a #DressUpFriday and some quality denim pieces that will stand the test of time.
