Our Editors All Think This Mango Jacket Will Be the Next Big Thing

Calling all outerwear obsessives—there's a new jacket on the scene, and it's set to be a sell-out. As someone who complains constantly about the cold, I'm always on the lookout for wearable cover-ups that feel more expensive than they are. And this one from Mango ticks all the boxes.

A little bit Western, a little bit Parisian, the buttery cream shacket features subtle fringe detailing that separates it from others on the market. It's made from wool and recycled polyester, with chic matching buttons and two roomy front pockets. The neutral shade makes it so versatile; you can style it with anything from a punchy primary-coloured dress to an all-black ensemble.

Admittedly, this is more of a transitional layer than a heavy-duty winter coat, which just means you can pull it out in spring and fall in love all over again. Right now, I'd wear mine with a simple tee, straight-leg jeans and loafers, but the shape is boxy enough to stuff a jumper underneath when the chill creeps in. If you're partial to jumbo knitwear, you might want to go up a size in this style.

Without further ado, scroll down to see the jacket that's got the Who What Wear team so excited. If you share our enthusiasm, act fast—we reckon this one will disappear in no time. (Don't worry; we've rounded up some alternatives that are just as cool.)
