Have you ever seen something that just fully took your breath away? For me, it was the one that got away last winter, but thankfully, I got a second chance at life and love. Yep, I'm fully talking about the TikTok-viral Mango sherpa jacket that made waves last year. (I get emotional over clothes! Don't sue me!)
Last fall and winter, seemingly everyone ordered Mango's elevated, toggle-front cream-colored jacket before I could get my hands on it. Despite checking the site weekly and having email notifications on for several sizes, I missed not one, not two, but three restock opportunities before I all but gave up on owning the jacket. While winter came and went, I landed on other hyper-fixations, but to be honest, I haven't had time to shake the jacket FOMO. That is, until now.
No joke, I probably broke the world record when it comes to clicking the purchase button. After seeing the jacket was back in stock earlier this week, I immediately clicked "Add to cart" and checked out before my brain could process. Typically, I like to be a little bit more thoughtful about my purchases (especially those soaring well above the $100 mark), but after wanting this jacket for months and seeing how inclusive the oversize, baggy fit is—the jacket comes in XXS to XXL—I let my shopping muscle memory take over.
It's not all in vain, though: sherpa- and shearling-lined jackets might be one of the chicest items you can buy this fall. Thanks to the Mango jacket's low-key, luxe-looking nature and incredible versatility, I'm convinced nabbing the jacket was the right move. Besides, if *this* many fashion people own and love this jacket, it simply has to be good.
