Mango Knows How to Make an Expensive-Looking Dress—4 Our Editors Are Snapping Up

If you ask me, Mango is one of the most consistently impressive brands on the high street. Not only does the Spanish style destination deliver on-trend clothing at reasonable prices, but it's also a reliable source of expensive-looking classics that last longer than a season. Every time I go for a browse at my local Mango (more often than I care to admit), I spy at least a handful of items I'd happily walk out of the store in.

In fact, just a few days ago I paid a visit to the high-street hero, and let's just say I was forced to exercise some serious restraint. Unsurprisingly, Mango's summer collection is filled with beautiful clothing and attention-grabbing accessories; everything from breezy linen separates to wow-factor wedding guest looks. 

But one category of clothing in particular stood out as I perused the rails: dresses. We're in July now, aka the height of dress season, so there's no better time to take advantage of Mango's knack for creating versatile summer styles. Whether you're seeking a polished midi for everyday wear, an impactful mini for your next night out, or a floor-grazing crochet maxi for that long-awaited holiday, I'm confident you'll be spoiled for choice.

And in even better news, you don't have to leave your house to find your dream summer dress. Thank goodness for the internet, eh? Mango has dozens on its site, so to make your search easier I've whittled the selection down to my 32 favourites, all of which fit neatly into four categories.

For outdoor weddings, park picnic dates and everything in between, keep scrolling to see the Mango dresses that will cover all the occasions in your summer calendar.
