An online store I definitely don’t shop at enough, but always seem to find great things, is Mango. I was so surprised how many of you don’t shop here! I feel like a few years ago I had a really good order from them and ever since, I’ve been hooked. And when I shared my most recent haul on my IG Stories a few weeks ago, I was super surprised how many readers said they’ve never shopped there! So this is your reminder to start checking Mango for new closet favorites.
Mango Sizing Review
I’d compare Mango’s sizing to Abercrombie or even Zara. I tend to fall usually in a medium, but depending on the fit and style, I may do a small. I find that jackets and coats I’m always a small. But for things like skirts and dresses and sometimes blouses, a medium is just a bit more comfortable. When it comes to sizing for me, my chest and rib cage is usually where I need to size up. So keeping that in mind, I find that anything that’s super fitted around the chest needs a medium. Or a button up. But if it’s a flowy dress or something, a small can usually do the trick.
Denim I have found runs just a tad small so I am more comfortable in my larger size. For shoes, I have not yet tried so can’t speak about that. I’m going to hopefully try some in my next order and see how it goes and report back!
You can also reference the Mango size chart here which is impossible to find on the website for some reason.
Mango Plus Sizes
Mango also has plus sizes which is so great! Their plus sizes go up to a size 4XL. And for denim and bottoms, they go up to a size 22. Mango plus size has a large section to choose from as well. I love that this popular brand has inclusive sizing for everyone.
Why I Love Shopping At Mango
Trendy Pieces But Not Crazy
There are a few major reasons why I love shopping at Mango. The first is that it’s somewhat trendy pieces but they’re not over the top. It doesn’t feel insane, but they’re just trendy enough that they feel fresh and new. I feel like if there’s something trending, they likely have it first. I think this may also be because they’re a European brand and they are always ahead in trends. But I feel as though the pieces aren’t crazy and out there which I appreciate as a more minimalist casual dresser.
Lots Of Basics
Even though their pieces may feel fashion forward, they also have tons of great basics as well. You can shop for your special occasions, lounge and even 9-5 looks. You can buy basic tees and sweaters. And also find a few cool pieces too. You can shop for your entire business wardrobe from suits, to blazers, blouses and even a nice work bag and coats.
Free Shipping Over $50 & Free Returns
And a major reason why I love shopping here is that they offer free shipping on orders over $50 and free returns on all orders. Since there are no stores nearby (I really think I’ve only seen a Mango in New York and in Europe) free returns are key. This also means I tend to just always buy two sizes to find my perfect fit and not have to deal with exchanges and waiting. I find that they don’t ship SUPER fast but it’s not a crazy delay.
Great Price And Pretty Darn Good Quality
And the last reason I love to shop here is the price. It’s really a good deal and not insanely overpriced. Sure coats are pricier, but that’s expected. But overall, many pieces are at or under $100 which is a good price point for me personally. I also find that they do some really good sales. Often you’ll see a good 30% off sale which makes the coats an even more amazing price. And things go fast, so this is when I recommend signing up for emails and buying multiple sizes if you’re unsure.
Mango also offers clothing for men, teen and kids. You can shop for the entire family!

Tips For Shopping At Mango
When things are good at Mango, they tend to sell out fast. So this is another reason why I always just buy two sizes on anything I’m not sure about. It helps to ensure I get the pieces I want. This is especially the case during a sale. Things will sell through quickly so buy both your sizes and just return what you don’t need. If something is sold out, you can sign up for email notifications when things come back in stock which they sometimes do.
There’s also a Mango OUTLET! I didn’t know about this until recently and it’s pretty damn good. The prices are so so good.

A Few Favorite Looks Featuring Mango
Clearly I have a thing for Mango dresses. What I find fascinating about the below is how old all of these pieces are besides the dark floral dress with Dr Martens, is that they’re MANY years old. The orange maxi, a personal go-to anytime I need to feel pretty and put together in the spring or summer. It’s my favorite dress to pack for warm weather vacations.
And this white midi dress was a random buy that I wasn’t sure about until it arrived. I don’t wear it often enough and this is my reminder to pull it out again asap. I’ve worn it in the summer, but also here for a late fall trip to Charleston. Paired it with booties and a utility jacket. And again with sneakers. It’s really so versatile. Sadly these are all super old. But just have to show how Mango is truly a brand that lasts in my closet for years.
This striped button front dress I think is what got me obsessed with button front dresses. It’s another favorite for spring and summer and pairs perfectly with heels or sandals. You can tell how old it is, look how long my hair was in this post! And this fun leopard orange shirt dress was another weird purchase but turns out to be a favorite. I style it two ways in this post.
For basics, I have a handful of cotton tanks from their basics collection and they’re great. Held up well and are pieces I grab often. This pretty floral mini dress is also one I recently picked up and is great to style for fall and into winter.
