There’s nothing that’s made me feel quite so old as TikTok. Perhaps it’s the energetic dances that require hours of practice or maybe it’s that I just don’t understand why anyone would want another social media platform to be a part of. Honestly, just leave me with my Instagram stories and an occasional tweet and I’m happy. While social media might be constantly delivering new platforms that make me confused, I’m not, however, confused by fashion. True, fashion thrives on “newness” but ultimately, trends always come back around again, which I find comfortingly reliable. Right now, the industry has a fixation on the ’90s minimalist trend and with that has come a new love for the sleeveless T-shirt, in particular from Mango.
Mango‘s latest season has been particularly brilliant but it’s this shoulder padded vest top that comes in three different colourways—black, white and striped—that’s really made an impact. It’s easy to see why: not only does it elevate jeans, skirts and high-waisted trousers and make them appear more luxe, it’s also a winner for the warmer months. Plus, if you just throw on a blazer and a gold chain or pair of earrings you’re ready for all those important work Zoom meetings. Keep scrolling to see how to style it then shop the top, plus some of our other favourites from Mango right now.
