Unimpressed by their new collections

MANGO nowadays seems like a trashier, less classy and louder version of Zara. In the past, MANGO used to showcase better and more impressive collections than Zara but it seems like they've lost their touch.

The only clothes I will buy from MANGO are their basic tees, which aren't really that affordable; they usually cost about $20 but I suppose that would be acceptable for a high-street fashion brand. One thing about MANGO is its impeccable quality, which has remained consistent over the years.

Kudos to MANGO for maintaining such quality over the years, but improve on your designs please!

Favourite brand for work clothes

Mango sells a good range of working clothes, ranging from work pants to blouses to dresses. The work pants are of good quality cotton and linen which do not crease too easily and the cut is flattering, yet suitable for office wear. Though their color palettes belong to the safer sides, like black, navy, and beige, you can never go wrong with these colors. The pants may be quite pricey, at about $50 for a pair, I feel that it is definitely worth it as these pants last me for a really long time. Occasionally, you can buy these clothes at a steal during their end of season sale, which may be sold at a cheaper price. The only downside of Mango is that their sizes run slightly big.

Mango remains one of my favorite brands for work clothes as they are trendy, comfortable and relatively affordable.

One of my favourite clothing brands!

Somehow it always seems like the favourite pieces of clothing I have in my wardrobe always seem to hail from Mango, and I suppose that definitely says something about the designs and quality of the clothes from Mango.

I absolutely revere Mango. This Spanish label is always on trend, and never fails to supply my wardrobe with absolutely chic clothing. Their clothing are generally classy and timeless despite being on trend, and they usually make use of understated neutral tones.

The quality is generally above average, but there are some pieces in which the quality can go a little awry. I personally own a cardigan which seems to fall apart more each time I wear it, but I can't quite bear to let it go because the design is gorgeous.

Go for their MANGO Jeans Tshirt collection! The cutting of the tshirts are more than flattering, and usually retail for only a mere $19!

The prices at Mango can be a little steep, but that's not really a huge concern as they usually host frequent sales in which prices can be slashed drastically to around 70% off. I usually get my clothes during these sales, and unlike sales from other brands, Mango does not merely discard unsold pieces during such sales, and they do in fact include a few items from recent collections.

The staff at Mango generally mind their own business most of the time, but when approached, they will definitely serve customers enthusiastically.

A truly remarkable brand!

love their basic tees.

I've just came out from a Mango outlet in Raffles City Shopping Centre not too long ago, to search for basics.

I was looking for a white or black spaghetti top to go with my other bottoms, I indeed found them at Mango. At $15, I thought the price was not too bad for the quality and could be considered, however, much to my dismay, the cutting was too tight for me and definitely too low cut. All was not lost though, I did get their plain mango tees which were on sale. They come in an array of colours and patterns from stripes to plain and even gold lettered words. These shirts had great quality and cutting, which would complement most figures.

However, I feel that their prices are a tad too high, some of the clothing had thin material but are charged at a high price. These are not worth buying, however, for those on a tight budget, their basic tanks tees and spaghetti tops are worth a buy!

Good for essentials

The clothes retailing at this Spanish label are mostly simple and classic.

Mango mainly sells basics such as scoop neck tops, camisoles, sweaters and tank tops in a multitude of different colours and patterns. Their prices are lower than those found at Topshop or Dorothy Perkins, which is a huge plus point.

The products there are the definition of wearability as they are classic instead of trendy. They do not conform to trends and therefore, transcend the limitations of seasonal trends and fads such that they are timeless and never look dated. I’ve purchased several pairs of trousers and tank tops from Mango that have taken me from season to season while still looking stylish.

Also, the apparel there is of rather high quality and the Mango clothes that I own have all lasted for quite a few years without losing their shape. The service there is flawless too, and the store attendants allow you to take your time to browse through the clothes there and keep their distance until they sense that you need their assistance. They are not too pushy and you do not feel too much pressure to purchase the clothes.

Overall, this is a place to visit if you are searching for high-quality and stylish basics!

Buy only their basics

The only Mango piece that I've owned would be their Mango Basic T-shirt. I bought it few years back during the season where it was so popular among the teenager girls. It's pretty affordable though, knowing that this piece of shirt comes from a world-wide known branded store. It's quite comfortable and doesn't become very loose even after wearing and washing it many times.

However, other than their basic t-shirts and tanks, the other clothing are just way too over-rated. It's definitely a store that I would never consider stepping in to shop for any apparel. Furthermore, it's just not the style for the teenage girls. You only step in unless you're really filthy rich or probably if you're looking for office wear or the only last possibility is when there's sales.

Certainly overrated.

The only thing I loved about my rare visits to Mango were their sales staff. They were attentive and not too clingy, and also brave enough to make recommendations, which I like in sales staff.

What I didn't quite like, was almost everything else. I get the feeling that Mango is trying too hard to push itself as an international brand and with airs of pretense. I find their clothes to be remarkable similar to tons of others in many other shops for far more reasonable prices.

I find that for women's clothes, names like Dorothy Perkins are still better in terms of luxury and affordability.

I'm only here for their logo tees

For everything else, Mango is quite stale.

They are a very safe fashion brand, their clothes are not too flamboyant nor too dull. It's a delicate mix and it works. I am a very avid fan of Mango and I have too many series of their clothes on end.

Their logo tee collection is gorgeous year after year, so I snapped it up in all 8 colors. Their logo long-sleeves collection was in a slimmer fit this year, so I grabbed it in basic colors. Their logo tank tops are now ribbed and it's sexier than ever, so I lapped it up in the basic colors. That's how insane I am over Mango's logo collection.

The only few apparel there I've ever found to my liking besides the logo collection was a 3-D potrait of a lady sipping tea on a tee. It was wordplay and it was adorable, I had to buy despite the staggering price tag of SGD$70. The other purhcase was a SGD$49.90 pair of white studded shorts that thankfully was left in only a size 25.

Come during sales, for all else, wait!

Go ONLY during the Sales!

Mango is not as hip as its high street counterparts like Topshop or Zara; it is a brand that embodies the essence of femininity and womanliness. This Spanish label is all about the celebration of being a woman- with frilly, white dresses for those languorous summer days by the pool, rouge red cocktail dresses that hug your body in all the right places for the glamorous parties after dark, denim jeans in all colors and fittings for the sociable shopaholic, and accessories galore to match as well! Don't even get me started at the seasonal Mango catalogue books.

With celebrity endorsers like Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson modeling the form-fitting dresses and outerwear, the editorial-inspired pictures make you feel like you do not need to be a Size 0 in order to look good. Curves are beautiful, and Mango clothes are all about embodying those God-given assets. Mango regularly does celebrity collaborations as well, releasing exclusive collections for the working woman.

However, I would only go during the sales. When Mango does sales, it does sales BIG. It helps if you are a member as well. Not only do you receive early notification on when the sales begin, you are exclusively invited to preview the sales before the rest of the crowds come in! The sales can get extremely messy and crowded, but that is because almost all their items go on sale (except for the latest collection). How good are the sales? Let me explain.

I bought a nautical-inspired top with fringe detailing for 35 SGD from the original 55 dollar price tag during the Mango Singapore sale. When I went to Spain in the summer when the sale in Singapore was still on, I saw the exact top retailing for 35 Euros (54 SGD), without a sale!

So ladies, I truly recommend you to at least check out the stores during the sale periods as you never know how much of a steal some of the prices can be!

Quite a bore

Although Mango is an established brand but I hardly see anything I like every time I entered the store. Perhaps it might be due to the age group that it catered to; Mango’s designs are relatively conservative and boring. The choices are slightly limited and less daring as compared to other brands. I wouldn’t advice ladies my age (I’m 21) to shop there as the designs are really too old. Another note for petite girls, as the designs are structured for US woman, so everything might seems to be too long on you. I like the sales assistants though, they keep a distance till you approached them for help on sizes:)
