Alexa Chung is just one of the celebrities who have worn a specific Mango coat of late.
Few things make the Who What Wear team speechless, but when we spotted not one, not two, not three, but four stylish celebrities wearing the same Mango coat, we were legitimately lost for words. This was back at the start of 2022, but as the chillier months have returned, the high-street retailer has just reissued this A-list-approved coat. That's right; the best seller is back! Of course, celebrities wearing high-street isn’t a one-off phenomenon—those whose looks we’re going to break down today have certainly worn their fair share of affordable buys in their time. But seldom do we see several celebs all opt for the same piece that comes in at an affordable price. And even more seldom is it that it makes a comeback after all but disappearing in a shopping furore.

Mango’s coats have been incredibly strong this season, with many of us still refreshing in hopes of bagging that shearling jacket. But never before have they been given so much attention from the A-list. Katie Holmes was the first celebrity I noticed wearing Mango outerwear—a green peacoat she wore to run errands in New York City in early January. Unsurprisingly, it sold out, and life resumed as normal. Then, whilst catching up on any celebrity outfits I’d missed, Gigi Hadid’s look featuring a beige double-breasted coat with a perfectly exaggerated silhouette was so chic it immediately commanded my attention. For some reason, I couldn’t shake the feeling that I’d seen this coat somewhere before. Then it dawned on me: I had just scrolled past it on Mango’s website.

Like an alarm bell going off in my mind, I suddenly realised that Hadid wasn’t the only celebrity to have worn this woollen Mango coat. Alexa Chung, Katie Holmes and Sienna Miller had snapped it up and worn it. My Mango contact confirmed my theory that all four women had indeed worn it—the one you now see before you. After something of a frenzy, the coat sold out, leaving those who missed it disappointed in the process. Today, however, I have good news—the very same Mango coat has just been restocked with a few updates—there's an additional button, for one—and is currently available in all sizes. Though, I don’t expect this to be the case for long.

A testament to the coat's versatility, Hadid, Miller, Chung and Holmes styled their Mango coats completely differently to one another. Hadid opted for brown check blazer and split-hem leggings, while Chung layered hers over a cream ruffle-hem midi dress, which she finished with black patent Mary Jane shoes and cute grey socks. Taking a more casual approach, Miller styled hers with straight-leg jeans and trending cropped Uggs. Holmes? She stuck to a neutral and creamy colour palette for her ensemble. Though these looks first appeared earlier this year, the fact that they still feel incredibly modern proves the timeless nature of this coat.
