Take a second to think about your circle of friends. There’s the bohemian, the girly girl, the tomboy, the avid trend-follower, and the one who’ll wear just about anything that belongs to a bygone era – and yet they all seem to shop at Mango. As do some of the most prominent faces of the region, of course.
In the last few weeks, we’ve spotted the stylish likes of Karen Wazen, Alanoud Badr, Lama Al Akeel, and more sport pieces from the Mango Spring/Summer 2019 collection and, if their #OOTD posts are any indication, we’re going to spend the slow, lazy days of summer wearing tie-dye and animal print. And with printed kaftans, flowy trousers, and fluid jumpsuits in muted hues and earthy tones on offer – alongside some very glamorous party looks thrown in for good measure – we’re sorted for both summer and seasonal festivities.
This time around, Mango is all about the fabrics, so expect to be enveloped in everything from poplin to satin and jacquard. But how are you supposed to navigate the collection? We’re starting by ‘borrowing’ a handful of outfit ideas from the region’s fashion insiders, complete with corresponding shoppables, in the gallery below.
There’s something so nonchalantly chic about a loose, flowy kaftan – especially when it’s paired with complementary palazzo trousers à la Alanoud Badr.
Why fuss about with complicated summer outfits when it’s this hot outside? Take a style cue from Lama Al Akeel and keep it simple – think: a flowy white jumpsuit and brightly colored accessories.
Ola Farahat proves that you don’t really need anything besides barely there stilettos when the dress in question is this green, this glitzy, this glamorous – love.
Leena Al Ghouti wrote the rulebook on modest dressing that is so much more than just modest – the self-professed tomboy has a real affinity for the androgynous, as evidenced by this effortlessly stylish ensemble.
Monochrome? Check. A statement accessory? Check. A statement accessory with earthy accents? Check again. Karen Wazen gets it right with this day-to-night look – again.
