Think of the holiday season and the first thing to comes to mind is an endless stream of party invites that lead to arduous mall runs for chic new party wear. If we’re being completely honest, shelling out on a spectacular frock that we’ll probably only wear once is not a desirable Christmas plan for anybody.
Elegant and sophisticated evening wear that’ll transcend the party wardrobe and knuckle down for work and casual weekends. Enter Mango’s A/W ‘18 collection.
Ethereal chiffon maxi gowns, cheeky playsuits decked in sequins and sparkly dresses (because what’s a holiday season without an extra kick of glitter?) are given an urban upgrade with professional-looking details and modest cuts that render them perfect for all occasions.
There are also new interpretations of the LBD (little black dress), by way of a sexy slip dress silhouette, a lush velvet wrap-style and glitter-sprinkled fabrics.
1980’s inspired multi-coloured sequins take centrestage, adorning classic party essentials such as the long sleeved shift dress and a figure-hugging mini. And to spice up your evening ensemble with extra pizazz, there are faux plush fur coats in sultry dark colours like black, crimson or bottle green that will fit the bill.
Of course, a party look is never complete without show-stealing accessories. Jewelled minaudières, retro tortoise shell handbags and on-trend drawstring wristlets with silver sequins complete the chic arsenal of bags while statement western-style belts and contemporary oversized strass earrings front the accessories line.
As for shoes, you can take your pick from silver ankle boots, over-the-knee leather boots and timeless black heels. All of which can be worked and reworked for your 2019 closet.
These outfits from Mango sure check all the boxes when it comes to finding the perfect festive frock for that holiday soiree, as well as keeping our wallets happier in the knowledge it’s a buy that we can wear again, and again, and again.
