Q: What are your style tips for MANGO customers?

The idea is to be able to move around without feeling uncomfortable or being looked at. The second style tip I would give is to have fun with clothes. Go shopping, try different things, and experiment with proportions different to the ones you are used to, with different color combinations. Simply try"try different things, enjoy it, play with them, and really have fun when you dress up.
