They're simple, smart and sophisticated: Mango handbags are basically everything a girl could want from arm candy. The Barcelona-based fashion label has been making waves across the world's high streets thanks to its clean and contemporary vibe, with some retro-inspired twists and an urban attitude thrown in for good measure.
Mango opened its first store in fashionable Barcelona back in 1984, and since then has grown to become a global brand beloved for its easy-going aesthetic. Handbags from Mango also follow this pattern, with simple lines and chic colours dominating the collection. Although most of these bags are understated, some feature embellishments that draw upon vintage designs and modern street-style trends. Look out for metallic studs, intricate embroidery and bold pops of primary colour. Because they're so sleek, Mango bags are ideal for combining with workwear for the office. Choose a colourful design and team it with a pair of culottes and a striped pussy-bow blouse for a playful midweek look. Add a pair of heeled loafers for an androgynous finish that's perfect for bossing it in the boardroom.
Understated handbags from Mango are versatile enough to go from work to weekend. Choose a brown or beige Mango handbag and wear it with a denim shirt dress and a pair of desert boots for cool Western-inspired style. Add a wide-brimmed hat and you'll be ready for a morning of wrangling cattle (or an afternoon of burgers and banter with the girls). A simple black handbag will work well with monochrome outfits, or teamed with a retro polka-dot dress and a pair of cat-eye sunglasses for an al-fresco brunch date.
