I'm a Firm Believer in Statement Jackets, and This Mango Buy is Just So Good

10/10 for cosy.

Someone once asked me the one item of clothing I would most recommend investing in. Perhaps expecting me to say a basic, she was surprised when I replied: a statement jacket. Yes, this isn't something that will necessarily fit into everyone's wardrobe, but for me it's the one thing I turn to again and again. It's by far the easiest way to add personality to the clean-lined staples sitting in my wardrobe. Well, this week I stumbled across a Mango jacket that could not be a better example of the power of souped-up outwear.

Coming in a cosy faux fur fabric, delicate shade of pale yellow and simple silhouette, I couldn't help but fall in love with it the moment I saw it on the site. My suspicions were confirmed when trend-setter Blanca Miro was snapped in the jacket on her Instagram feed (styled with a very cool pair of animal print Mango trousers, I might add). It's the sort of style that would look very Brit It girl with a crew neck knit, slouchy jeans and combat boots, but then easily transition into the evening with tailored trousers, heels and a silky cami top. 

Who What Wear contributor Lily Russo-Bah tried on a similar faux fur style recently, which confirmed Mango's ability to deliver premium feel fabrics: "Buying into faux fur can be tricky, but even the most exclusive designers are replacing the real deal with a more ethical substitute. I thought this one looked so premium that it came home with me… a success!" So if you're looking for something to give your basics wardrobe a little je ne sais quoi, scroll down to see the dream Mango statement jacket and shop similar styles.
