Mango Just Dropped a $199 Version of Fashion's Cult-Favorite $4000 Coat

Burberry has its famous trench coat. Louis Vuitton has its iconic luggage. And Max Mara has its oh-so-recognizable teddy coat. Though it comes in a slew of different colors, the brown version is particularly sought-after by fashion's elite—it consistently crops up in street style pics year after year. While I'm a huge fan of the posh Italian brand, there's no denying that the $4000 price tag is inaccessible to most shoppers.

That's where Mango comes in: The brand just debuted a $199 coat that reminds me of Max Mara's Teddy Coat. Importantly, I don't see this as a cheesy knockoff, but rather a coat with a similar vibe that has different details. As you can see in the photos, the Mango version is made with more of a shaggy, furry material while the Max Mara one has more of a traditional sherpa look. Scroll down to shop both iterations of the winter coat trend.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
