How 12 Under-$200 Mango Picks Look in Real Life

As someone who is not a model (I'm 5'4" on a really good day), I sometimes find it difficult to imagine how my online purchases will actually look IRL. I'm also not necessarily trying to become a regular at the post office anytime soon, so to avoid as many returns as possible, I scroll through Instagram to see how pieces fit other women before buying. Sidenote: This is also a really great way to get outfit inspiration.

One of my favorite brands to shop online is Mango, and I frequent #MangoGirls on Instagram more often than I'd like to admit (for other brands, I just check their tagged photos). There are hundreds of new posts a day, so chances are I can source at least one or two images of any new item I'm considering buying. Since I'm officially knee-deep in fall shopping, I did a recent search to see how these 14 Mango pieces I'm eyeing fit on other non-models. Spoiler alert: they look even better than I'd hoped.
